Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZSteve easily rekeyed, awesome option
When I bought this it was too avoid having to get all my locks either rekeyed or changed. Saw this and decided to give it a go. There were some issues with the cylinder but a new cylinder sent from Kwikset solved my issue. Customer service was phenomenal and they followed up weeks later.
My dad makes wrought iron doors and swears by their locks. As he said "you can't put a price on safety and Kwikset locks have never failed" [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jonnie m Excellant Safety feature locking from both sides
After I purchased and installed the dual cylinder lock (key used on both sides of cylinder to prevent someone from reaching in and turning deadbolt by hand after breaking window) I knew what was coming from my wife---we can't have this, if there is a fire getting key and unlocking will not work. I showed here the slot in the wall I made with key placement and also were i put a secondary key (also near the door). Once again i was told this will not work. I showed her the benefit that if someone broke a window they could not reach in and unlock door and left it at that. Over the next few days I watched her as she would run, grab stored key, and unlock door. I also observed her doing the same---but without grabbing key and pretend to turn a deadbolt handle. I never brought up the issue again and after a few days when she left to run errands I took out the Double Cylinder Deadbolt and i
reinstalled a traditional Single Cylinder. When she returned the very first thing she said was why do we have this unsafe lock back in the front door. I believe that the above story tells it all. When you want safety, you want Kwikset and the Double Cylinder Deadnoult [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by arun Single key for all the doors! And re-keyable!
I love these locks.... a single key for all the outside doors - front, back and side - makes it so convenient. On top of that I have bought a smartkey kwikset padlock for the gate which also opens with the same key. Convenient and minimalist. No problems for past 2 years. One lock was a bit sticky and was not opening well with the key... I rekeyed it to the same key and now it works smoothly. The satin nickel finish has stayed well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tripden They stood behind their warranty!
After about 2 years, the key was working roughly. Kwikset replaced the unit and paid shipping. All is well! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rmjb SmartKey makes security easy
In my parents house the key bundle can drop your pants. When I built my house I used all SmartKey deadbolts and handle sets. Each door has a deadbolt and some doors have a matching handleset. I standardized on the 985 Double Cylinder for the deadbolt.
Now the key bundle on my house is only 3 keys, by choice. And still, very secure. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by handyperson Installation instructions are terrible
The instructions are mostly pictures and not very good ones at that. Print is tiny and requires magnifying glass.

Put these on a couple of doors with windows and there have been no problems. Rugged, reliable, dependable. What more could you ask for?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ravenkeeper Outstanding Product
A few years ago, we purchased this deadbolt setup to replace the set on our front door. The one we had, had a handle on the inside to lock/unlock. Some friends of ours, who had a similar door, had their side windows broken, the criminals reached in, unlocked the door and made off with a lot of their stuff. The next day, we bought this set. We have a spare key, hidden, in the house for evacuation purposes, but we know that they can break the side window and NOT get in. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
