Questions & Answers

How do you get copies of the original Master Key since it says Do Not Duplicate?

We need several copies made of the original master key that comes with the new lock for our maintenance and office staff. However, the master key says Do Not Duplicate. How do we have copies made it?
Asked by: mountainviewmgr648
You can go to most professional locksmiths (not just some store with a key machine) to have then made. Most will require that you prove in some way you are the landlord, business owner, or have the key registered to you in some way.

Does this deadbolt have a thumb turn so it can be locked from the inside?

Asked by: Greenlake
Single cylinder deadbolts have an interior knob to unlock without a key from the interior. Double cylinder deadbolts are keyed on both the interior and exterior. This prevents a would be thief from breaking a window and reaching in and unlocking the door. if all the doors on the house have double cylinder deadbolts it may even hinder them from removing any large items from the home.It also has its drawbacks. In the case of a fire it can prevent you from exiting quickly unless you have a key hidden nearby and all family members KNOW where it is.I personally always use double cylinder deadbolts.All deadbolts are worthless unless installed properly with extra long screws into solid wood backing with metal jam supports. Take the time to install it properly or hire a qualified locksmith or carpenter,you'll sleep much better knowing someone will have a hard time kicking your door in.

What about the knob lock cyl. with a master Key?

Today I've just seen the key control feature in the Home Depot online listings. Landlord or Service people can access the (Key Control} dead bolt lock cyl but what about the knob lock? OR do you not allow a knob lock? Someone said the Master Key is not included. Does Home Depot sell them?
Asked by: Robert7
We do not include a knob lock and always use a passage lock for the handle. We have discovered that with the knob lock tenants are often locking themselves out of there apartment when they step out to go to the laundry or to get a paper. The deadbolt is the only legal requirement for occupancy and tenants learn to use the dead bolt as they come and go through their door.

I want to have one master key for all my units, I noticed each lock come with it's own master, for me this beats the purpose of 1. As I buy new locks and replace them this this one, can I master them all to one key, or do I have to keep the master for each one?
Asked by: WW
Kwikset model #816 15 SMT RCAL RCS cannot be master keyed the old pin and tumbler way. However, because it is a SmartKey Technology lock the top cylinder can be re-keyed to one specific key on all the locks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I didn't realize the door needed to be 1 3/4"... I didn't realize the door needed to be 1 3/4" thick so the wouldn't work for my use and the 2nd tumbler wasn't easy to access a little stiff and must have the reset key to access or something pointed to rotate. Overall as I run a hotel and have housekeeping it wouldn't work.

I manage a 52-unit apartment complex, these help with a couple of issues, mainly the increased strength of the jamb latch, and the speed of re-keying during turnovers instead of replacing - saved us money in that regard, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAVE TIME DURING KEY CHANGE I have 3 doors in each unit that I used to have to remove lock to change. Now it is as simple as turn key, insert a tool, remove key, insert new key and turn and you are done. Saves me a lot of time.

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.
