This was amazingly easy to do! Daughter bought a house and wanted the locks/keys changed. We bought this and in five minutes the lock is re-keyed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oaktree9 Interesting concept
These re-key smart locks are a little on the expensive side but moving into a home that already has them installed makes this key kit a necessity. The previous home owner lost the reset tool so the home was open to anyone to whom he may have given a key. With this kit, in 30 seconds, I was able to re-key all the locks on the doors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bruce Genius. Easy and cheap fix.
This is a genius product. My houseguest mailed my housekey back to us after a visit and the envelope was opened and arrived with no key. Did the post office rip it open? Does someone know my address and have a key? I don't know - I set out to change the lock to my front door, which was $46. This fixed in for $11 bucks and it took 2 minutes. What a great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Watermizer Best product ever!
Best product ever..the Smartkey lock and these re key packs. The rekey packet has all the keys i need plus the actual pin tool to rekey so i do not have to hunt down the tool that came originally with my lock.
I have rekeyed my same lock about 5x in the last 5 years. I rent out a spare bedroom in my home and it is so great to rekey the door in 3 minutes after the old room mate leaves.
(most room mates move in to save up money until they can afford their own place later on)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Handyman Smart Key
Lots of mixed opinions on this one.
Here is my experience.
I'm a Handyman, Fair price reasonable rates. Likes to get things done right the first time.
Bought and installed three of these for my customer. Later she called and asked to re-key one of her rooms.Had to buy it on line. Read the instructions, read the reviews and scheduled my appointment. I approached the job with some skepticism.
After reading everyone's story. The instruction on the package seemed clear and concise. In the house we go Hoping for a fifteen minute re-key.
Followed the instruction and illustrations to a "T". Inserted the new house key turned it and guess what? It locked up.
Called Kwikset. 30 minutes on hold. Finally a Service Rep. Walked back upstairs with speaker phone on and followed his instructions. No Dice.
He ends the conversation with the standard apology and told me to go back to Home Depot so they could reset the tumbler.
Remember this is a old call already done and paid for. Box and receipt are gone. When I bought it from Home Depot originally the employee tinkered with it for 30 minutes. Another employee had it done in about 3 minutes. And then off for the installation. This time I ate the cost of the Smartkey bought a cheaper deadbolt and installed it in it's place. 10 minutes done.
Great idea really is. Just not dependable. You can buy two of the cheaper ones for the price of one Smartket lock. And install them with confidence and certainty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PediatricOT Awesome product!
After failing to find a new deadbolt to match my front door handle at my new house, I asked an associate for help. When I showed him the picture of the lock, he pointed out the little opening next to the key hold and explained I didn't need a new lock (if I didn't want one) as I could simply rekey it. I am not a handy, DIY person, and I did this in less than 5 minutes. Quick, easy, and it matches! I love that it comes with a few alternate keys for when you are out of town. This is a great, well-priced product that I will be using again.
