Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillV Worked as expected
This lock dropped right into the same hole as my old one which had to be replaced due to a lost key. Only slightly inconvenient thing for me was the screws were too long and had to be trimmed. Better than too short.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Someone Is as advertised
Instructions are to mount in top panel, but I wanted mine so that my wife could easily reach it. I added a couple feet of cable and it works great. Be forwarned that if you remove the key while the cylinder is out of the casing, that tiny parts may fall from the cylinder on to the ground or snow. This potential problem should have been corrected before marketing this product and is the reason I don't give it a higher rating.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mczouav Works, but i modified the attachment setup for better security
I highly recommend not to mount it as in manual. Because it would be too easy for a thief to drill the screw heads (battery drills are common) and pop the device out of its hole towards the exterior of the door to open your garage door.
Instead i attached it behind the door passing through a piece of steel which holds the lock from behind. The screws holding it are invisible from outside. Use another wood support or glue a short plastic pipe to protect door insulation on the hole of the door if needed. Much harder to break.
Do not remove key if opened lock outside assembly.... Springs would jump.
Ps: spanish and french translations on the package are rubbish, do not mean anything! Had a big laugh reading it. ( i speak those fluently)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John It does its job
I was looking for a replacement for a lock I didn't have a key for.
After removing the old lock, I followed the instructions for installation, and it went smoothly and quickly.
I tested it by closing the garage door, putting in the key, turning, and removing the lock cylinder. That allowed me to pull the release cable and open the garage door, which will allow me to get to my car during a power outage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EZRider good protection against power outage
Easy to install (<5 min) and provides easy access if you have a garage with only automatic door opener. let's you access garage/shed emergency pull cord if no power.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NotLockedOutAnymore Good purchase
A very necessary purchase for my situation. I live in a rural , all-electric home with frequent power outages. I keep all my doors bolted and I access the house through the garage. When power is out, someone better be inside to let me in. This allows me access.
One downside is that the lock is designed for a wooden door. I had to back up the inside of the door with a square of plywood to securely attach lock. Manufacturer might want to detail that this might be the case and give instructions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobM Exact Replacement
This item was an exact duplicate for an existing lock kit. The key on the original kit was lost. This fit the original space perfectly and was easy to install using the previous holes. A first time install will also be easy with only three holes to drill. This device is necessary if your garage only has a garage door with a garage door opener. If you lose power, you can't get in without this.
