Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike B Does not work for Weiser Locks
As all the reviews state (I wish I read them 1st), this kit does not work for Weiser locks. The one positive review is reviewing a Kiwkset kit. The pins provided are too long. I guess you could file down the pins as some have done, or file down the provided key and then get more cut from that, but it is a lot of work or extra expense. What should be a simple solution is not. I would look for something else or prepare for a lot of frustration.

This one must have been a Friday /Monday Kit.They are a great idea .I put the pins in as directed.The final pin seemed to be a bit long.No problem I can file the final pin .As it turned out all three keys were a bit different.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 1BigKahuna Package showed a pickle fork but did not contain a pickle fork with contents.
This product was easy to install after I purchased a pickle fork from another supplier. After installation it worked very smoothly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skully Good idea but bad product
Rekeyed three locks with kit. Either the pins were too long or the keys were cut incorrectly because all the pins protruded from the lock core so far they prevented reassembly. After much filing I was able to get three locks to work. Not worth the trouble.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by andrewsd Did not work for my Weiser lock
I was able to disassemble my existing lock and remove the existing pins. But when I put the new pins on the new key, the pins protruded from the cylinder holes and prevented reassembly. (To convince myself I knew how things were supposed to work, I was successfully able to "re-key" back to the original key.) After emailing the Prime-line customer support, I got a reply saying "There are some vintages of the Weiser locks that are not compatible, depends on how old your unit is" and suggested I return the product for credit. That's fine I suppose, but I did spend over an hour fiddling with this because I was convinced I was doing something wrong.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BBFDFireChief Kwikset E-2400 5-pin re-keying kit
I had no [problems re-keying my 5 Kwikset door locks. The parts all fit perfectly and everything went together just fine. The first door lock took much longer as I was following the directions for the first time and went slowly to prevent and issues. Also went to Pime-Line web site and obtained additional information which included an excellent video. Also went online to other sources such as YouTube for additional videos. Saved myself tons of money with this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sidd Incorrect pins and no documentation
First of all there were almost no proper documentation and directions. It doesn't show any pictures of what tool to be used and it doesn't describe the process clearly. I had to lose one of my locks since it didn't tell me to hold the lock in a proper way or else the springs fall off and you cannot repair it.
The pins were of incorrect size which I could realize only after opening up the lock.
This product definitely needs proper documentation or a link to a youtube video and the product should ensure that the pins they send are correct.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SuzieQ more difficult and time consuming than expected
Much more difficult on one of the locks we worked on. In fact, we don't think the kit is particularly made for the Weiser locks as stated. we had to modify and then work on the keys as well. Not that good an idea. Several hours later, we had rekeyed 3 locks. Would not attempt this again.
