Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 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. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect fit for the product The lock kit is an exact duplicate of the existing lock which was damaged. The Home Depot customer representative went the extra mile in finding the right product for me. This wasn't even his department! He came to me for assistance. It is this kind of customer service prevalent in all Home Depots that makes shopping there a pleasurable experience. Thanks for the service! Dan Taylor October 29, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by keep looking 1. I took the key out of the lock while it was outside of the cylinder and three of the four mechanisms in the lock fell on the driveway. Luckily I found all of the little springs. 2. There's no included backing plate or proper washers, so be prepared to fab one up yourself if you have an insulated aluminum door. 3. The included cable was too short, but I knew that when I bought it. What surprised me is that I'm pretty sure it would have been too short if I installed it in the middle of the top panel!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clever idea My garage had no openings other than the main door. I did not know what to do to correct this if the main door stopped working. I went to Home Depot to see about buying a door or window to install. The wonderful salesman recommended this device which unlocks the main garage door from the outside so you are then able to open it manually. August 21, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by This product was not the quality I expected Since I lost the keys to my current emergency release I bought this kit to replace it. The wire was too short and the gauge was thinner than on the original device so I was hesitant to install it. Hence, the quality was lacking. It's not as easy to install myself as it looked to be online and so I will have to hire someone to do it. January 10, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install I mistakingly drop the device and two tumblers came out. It took me awhile to get the right combination. Would be helpful to have instructions to recover October 30, 2012
