Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JKISS Love this deadbolt
Not only is this an excellent deadbolt, I have purchased sets of these for all my doors, customer service is excellent. It is nice to know that there is a company that stands behind their products, service with a smile. I have recommended these to many people. Thank you Kwikset.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GrueneQueen Bad product with plastic innards
I put this on my back door, and had nothing but trouble. The PLASTIC cylinder inside broke on me twice. I had to hire out a locksmith who said it was made of plastic and not good. 9 months after he fixed it, I had the same problem again, requiring the replacement of the innards, again, plastic from China. A thief only has to hit it in the center hard to break it. I was burgled, and we found out it was because of this cheap lock. I have since replaced all of my locks with the Schlage keypad locks. I have put them on all of my doors on all of my houses. They are much more secure, and if you key all of them with the same basic code, you can have a second code for employees or tenants. If your tenant or whomever moves out, you can recode them easily. I would never recommend Kwickset ever. I have a B&B, and use one of these Schlage on the guests door. They have liked the Schlage so much, they have put them on their houses. My competitors found out I was using the Schlage locks and added them to their guest room doors.

I bought this several months ago along with matching bedroom/bathroom locking knobs. I would recommend these locks to anyone. They look really nice and are holding up well. I love the rekey feature that allowed me to reset all the locks to the same key. My only precaution is to read and follow the instructions for re-keying using the smart key feature. I did not do a good job on my first exterior knob and ended up with a lock that could not be locked using any key. I took it back to the dealer as suggested in the instructions and another dealer in the area; neither had the equipment to help me rekey it. It was my own fault for not being sure I understood the instructions. They are pretty clear; I just got in a hurry. I have been told a locksmith can reset it but I just haven't gone through the trouble of taking it in yet.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BigRick ILove The Kwikset Brand but....
I have several rentals and they all have the standard KS Smart Key systems on them. I wanted to try this to make it easier so i dont have to carry so many keyes. But i was not so satisfied with this. Most of our locks have the Rosettes on them, this is just a hair to big for the rosettes as the lock shaft needs to be a bit longer to work better. And after i put it on, the lock was a little snug to turn and not as easy as the KS ones, when using the key that is. Also, you have to have a Control Key to use this, which did NOT come with the unit. Overall, i was not satisfied with this though i like the concept. I took it off and put the previous KS Smart key one back on. With the Rosettes of course. Sorry.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mbinny Attractive deadbolt
A little tricky to install for a novice. Be sure to measure the door you plan to put it on. I planned to install it on an older wood door and it was too narrow. Used it on another door instead. Smooth operation. Attractive finish which I hope holds up over time...I will update in 6 months or so.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Micah Great for apartments
This is a must have for apartment owners. Make sure you get the single cylinder instead of the double as many cities have housing codes that prevent you from installing 2x cyls in apartments for safety reasons.
This is super easy to rekey and installation was just like any other deadbolt lock.
