I bought these 3 years ago for a 4 unit property. They were great while they worked, but last year I got my first call from a tenant whose lock stopped working. The tenant cylinder had started sticking over the last couple weeks and now would not turn at all. About 6 months later the one on the second apartment did the same. I just got a call today from another tenant with the same issue. I now have 3 deadbolts sitting on my counter. I called Kwikset to let them know and get warranty replacements for them and was told that the locks AREN'T COVERED ON RENTAL UNITS. This lock is made specifically FOR rental units, and marketed as such with Kwikset's great warranty, but then WHEN 3 out of 4 OF THEM FAIL within 3 years they won't cover them? I had been a loyal Kwikset customer, I've purchased upwards of 15 locks from them in the last couple years, including several electronic ones. No more.

Was as advertised. Master key (top) is slightly different than bottom key given to tenants. The master key has "Do Not Duplicate" stamped on it and will not fit in tenant key spot. Just one more security measure to ensure that the lock cannot be rekeyed by tenants to keep the management company out.
