Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Easy to install and great product. I would recommem the product to a friend August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great! Matched existing knobs perfectly! Changing the keying was easy. November 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT WARRANTY A full set of Chrome Hancock locks were installed in my new house in 1999. A couple of them have failed after extensive use. No problem though - with Kwikset's lifetime warranty to the original owner, they were replaced after a phone call. The original installed versions were not the smart key type. The newer smart key type avoids the trip to the locksmith to match the rest of the house. One gripe about the newer version - they are more difficult to remove from the door than the original version which were held to the door via machine screws. All in all great locks with a great warranty. July 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 3, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy installation, Smartkey technology works well. I purchased to replace a failing doorknob. Installation was easy and the Smartkey technology was a snap to use allowing me to use previous key. I would gladly purchase a Kwikset knob again in the future. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Product Instructions were easily understandable and installation was easy and quick. Excellent product quality. May 30, 2015
