The control ket IS NOT a KW1. This product is not compatible with the remainder of your property.
Response from Customer CareDec 10, 2020
Hello Johno165, We appreciate your feedback. The Key Control lock is compatible with KW1 keys. To assist you further, we'd need to gather more details about the keys you'd like to use with the lock to find the correct solution. Can you please contact our Support Team for further assistance at 1-800-327-5625 or on our online portal linked below? https://www.kwikset.com/support/ask-a-question Thank you, Kwikset
    Easy to install
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I installed it by myself in 10 minutes.... that includes the time it took to take my regular deadbolt off. Super easy installation as long as you had another style deadbolt there before. If I can install this, anyone can. Came with 2 keys & they glide like butter. The lock does too. Super smooth & great quality.

      Locked up right!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Kwikset Key Control Deadbolt was really easy to install (no real experience here!) and works perfect to add a little extra security to our home. We have door knob locks, but my wife has been wanting to add deadbolts too, so we did! The finish is great and matches my existing knob...the key goes in smoothly and doesn't stick for seamless entry. Very pleased!

        Excellent Deadbolt Lock
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This deadbolt is an excellent way to maintain the security of your home or office. It is simple to install and works great as a new installation or replacement set. The style and finish of this lock complements any door and a wide variety of home decor.

          Quality Lock
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a quality product that works well and the satin nickel finish looks good with the rest of my door hardware. The fact that you can re-key the lock yourself instead of having to call out a locksmith or change out the lock is a great feature. Quick and easy to install and the lock comes with 2 keys.

              Love being able to re key
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The lock looks really nice I have the satin nickel finish. One of the features I like best is that it’s able to be re-keyed with any number of quickset locks. That way it can be matched to other keys in the house or if you own an apartment complex or other rental unit you can re-key it every time a tenant moves out.
