Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ByteGuy Easy install, and you can match many locks to 1 key!! Don't forget to make extra keys afterwards!!
Other than disputing the style and price of the locks with the wife, who happens to be the one who lost her keys and the reason for buying the new deadbolts, not blaming anyone, lol. I installed these with very minimum problems, just had to trim the opening a bit. This is a better stronger deadbolt that what we originally had, hence the minor trimming. We bought 2, 1 for the front and 1 for the garage/kitchen door, I say we, but everyone knows who paid, right? I did get my moneys worth, and enjoyed teasing the wife over it. She held the door while I removed the old and installed the new. Got to give her some credit!!
Get them, you will not regret it!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by adele0283 Easiest Lock to Re-key.
I LOVE these locks. They are so simple to re-key whenever you need without having to call an expensive locksmith. They are simple to install, look high end and add a bit of class to your doors. I just wish the store stocked them. Its STUPID to have to wait for them to be shipped when you need one in a hurry.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goldwing Very easy to re-key
I was leery that this would be easy to re-key, so I did it in the store with my curious 2 yr-old "helping." It only took a minute and done. Opening the package was more difficult than the re-keying process. I chose the brand because my current house keys use the same blank. I was adding this high on the door to prevent my cabin-fever suffering 2 yr old from escaping. It isn't the prettiest design, but nice for this price point. It works smoothly, it's easy to key, I'm happy with my purchase. I would buy this again. I could actually follow the instructions! They were understandable, but it's sad that's a bonus these days.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sal Works well, just what I wanted.
Product works well. You need more associates to answer questions waited for over 5 minutes for an associate to answer my question.

Upgraded the hardware on my front door a week ago. I live in a nice quite subdivision in a low crime area, but I believe strongly in the safety and security of my family. I'm just now reading the other reviews about being locked out and I hope that doesn't happen to us. It makes sense what the other review said about the "Bump Guard" causing the issue. Completed the project in about 5 hours, adjusting the jamb to accommodate the thick commercial grade hinges was difficult but the Kwickset hardware was a piece of cake even setting the extra dead bolt was easier than I had anticipated with the help of a jig. Just make sure you replace all included jamb screws with longer ones to sink into the stud behind the jamb, I did this with the 5 hinges and both strike plates. Looking at it now I wish I had purchased another deadbolt for the lower portion of the door. Maybe next week:)
Note: Model# 980 3 SMT K4 The boxes purchased say ANSI GRADE 1 BHMA CERTIFIED
The discription online says grade 2

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roadrunner0 Good quality lockset
We have a couple of these with the rekeying feature.. This is NOT the lock for you if you bang hard on or slam doors as the anti bump tumblers will lock the cylinder just like a safe with anti jimmy feature.. Also to reset the cylinder pins you need to unlock it from the inside and stick your key and the rekey tool in the lock as instructions describe.. Not recomended for direct exposure to the elements as well and squirting in lubrication is also a bad idea.. When installing watch to make sure the small arm on the bolt mechinism does not touch the inside of the hole in the door at the top.. That will cause the bolt not to extend or retract easily if at all..
A batch of these were shipped with wood screws and not the machine screws.. The manufacturer will send you the right screws if you call or you can take the set back to the store and get another one but open it at the store to verify the hardware, they will help you .. Ours were all correct with no negitive quality issues to report..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GDog Great deadbolt that I re-keyed to my house key.
The smartkey feature is worth the extra cost because you can key it to your house key. These deadbolts are very durable and I know that for a fact because I have two of them on a shed in the mountains where the temps get below zero constantly and the wind is ofter over 50 mph.
