Can I order deadbolts and knobs so they all match with one key?

We are replacing old knobs and deadbolts, can we order new deadbolts and knobs that have a matching key (one key for all 7 knobs/deadbolts)?
Asked by: Tvj
When ordering the deadbolts and knobs with the Smartkey Technology, this will allow to rekey the locks on your own and use just one key in the lock.

Good for Old Doors? Part 2

It looks like the diameter of the escutcheon (the round metal plate w/3 screws on the face of the door, the part the knob connector goes through) is only 2 inches diameter. I don't know the dimensions of the actual hole, I guess I'd have to take things apart to find out about that. So, will the 2 in. be a problem? I'm guessing the hole could be widened, if necessary. Is that correct? Or wouldn't the larger new escutcheon just fit over what is removed? That would certainly be nicer than cutting a larger hole. And then, if I wanted to put the old hardware back at a later date, if the hole had been enlarged, would we need to put in a wood circle to fill that space or something? Thanks!

Customer Reviews

Hancock Antique Nickel Entry Knob Featuring SmartKey is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install with innovative Kwikset re-key feature We got this handle set to add to upgrade our old back door handles. Probably the easiest DIY job I've had to do in a while and was pretty much a straight swap out that took 15 minutes. We really liked the re-key capability of this lock which allowed us to reset the lock tumblers to match our front door lock so we only need one key for our front and rear door locks. Very simple instructions to follow to re-set the lock to match the Kwikset key you want to use and the set comes with the special tool to allow the lock set to be reset. The rubbed bronze finish is also very attractive with a gently textured finish. Perhaps the best feature was the fact that they supply two strike plate covers with a choice of either rounded edges or squared edges which meant no additional chiseling when installing the replacement lock mechanism as it fit the holes and recesses that were already in the door. Great product which is easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great workmanship I am a locksmith in Central Illinois. Being in a mainly rural area, my customers want security and good products, but can't afford many options that are on the market. Kwikset has been a God send for most all of my customers. This knob in particular has been VERY popular and I recommend it to anyone who wants security, design and an affordable price. I haven't had any problems with Kwikset products. They hold up very well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have six exterior doors all have quickset locks. The locks perform very well and the finish also. After about ten years one lock failed and kwikset quickly and professionally sent the replacement at no cost. Great service in a time when it's RARE!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to install I recently upgraded my exterior door knobs with the Kwikset knobs because of the feature allowing me to key them to one key instead of a different key for each door. The installation and re-keying was a breeze. The downside is that some of my doors are right opening and some are left opening so some of the doors now have the key slot upside down (teeth facing down instead of up). I did not see anything on the boxes designating whether they were for left opening or right opening doors so I assumed the cylinder could be flipped over by the home owner. There are no instructions included for flipping the cylinder so I'm guessing either I need a locksmith to do it or it's not doable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Upgrade The old lock on my garage door was just a push-button lock with no key slot, so it couldn't be unlocked from the exterior. Nothing worse than going to open the door with an armful of groceries only to discovered it was locked & as such, you had to traipse around to the front door. The best part about this lock is that it can be rekeyed to match your existing keys, so it will open with the same key as your other doors. Installation was straight forward and quick. One of the tabs on the bracket was bent out of shape so I had to use pliers to fix it, but nothing major. The directions were explained well & rekeying the lock was very simple. The finish is nice & the lock feels sturdy once installed. Overall, nice looking, easy upgrade!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to set to existing key & grate coustomer serv I have used the Quickset locks for several years & have had excellent service. I have had to contact customer service for finish deteriation issues & was sent a new lock set to replace the old one with no hassle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst installation instructions - EVER The product is of good quality, but. The installation instructions were the worst of any product I have ever purchased (PERIOD). It took me 3 trips back to the store and over 3 hours to reverse engineer the product with someone who knows door knobs to figure out what it does. If I ever need to take it off, I will probably have to replace the door. Knowing what I know now, I would tell people to NOT buy this product until the instructions are fixed ... and since there is no way to know when that is done, I was urge caution.
