Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 122 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Door Handle Set Home Depot installed a new Door and Storm Door for me of which I also purchased the door knob and handle set with smartkey. I just love the professional look and color. What really set it off is that I can use the same key with all the locks. The lock can be changed anytime and it was easy to do. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful door handle This product has a beautiful satin nickel finish and classic design. It was the only model with both a deadbolt lock and a lock on the handle. The area around the key hole is holding up nicely and does not scratch from key insertion. The key works smoothly and the QuikSet feature worked well to match up with the key from our other doors. I definitely recommend this product. June 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kwikset Beautiful design and seems durable. Downside is they don't make a dummy door set in this model June 23, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Beware Easy to install myself, easy to re-key and looks great. Highly recommended based on all that and seems like a great value But before you buy one of these, do a web search on "defeat smart key" and check out the videos of how to beat this lock in 10 seconds. I didn't find any manufacturer responses talking about how this problem has been addressed. December 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by front door lock set solid and comfortable feel to the lock and the mechanism feels sturdy. General feel and look of a quality product. June 2, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product has many manufacturing defects I have bought 2 of this sets, the first one had an issue with locking, when the outside lever was pushed, it would wrongful unlock the door without a key. The second set had a machining issue, one screw would go only 1/5 of the way and the second only half way. Kwikset needs to improve their quality control, their products are priced at a premium, and there is no excuse for consistent manufacturing issues. August 22, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Does not fit a door less than 1 3/4" I tried to install this lock set on my door which measured slightly less than 1 3/4". On the web sit it says that the minimum door thickness is 1 3/8". When I tightened the knob set, the handle binds and will not turn. When I called Kwikset, they said that it would only work on a door 1 3/4" and thicker even though on their own web site it says 1 3/8". Also, I found the quality to be just fair as the screws were very tight going into the dead bolt, and the keys required filing the burrs to work properly. For the money, I expected better October 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great Very sturdy, great price and it looks good for my house March 10, 2015
