The Kwikset Smartkey locks were named a “Best Buy” in the February 2010 issue of Consumer Reports, based on the locks’ performance and features.
In the article titled “Peace of Mind: Top-Notch Door Locks and Safes,” the Consumer Reports editors mentioned that “The SmartKey is one of only two deadbolt locks that are at this price and bump-proof, but you easily can rekey this model. That’s a great luxury, because it saves you the trouble of calling a locksmith to change your door.”
According to Brent Flaharty, the vice president of Marketing at Kwikset, “”SmartKey re-key technology is one of the most successful and revolutionary innovations in our company’s history, and we attribute the tremendous and rapid adoption by homeowners to the fact that we’ve made improved home security affordable, and thereby accessible to all.”
Kwikset SmartKey deadbolts come with a patented side-locking bar that makes re-keying the lock fast and simple. The stainless steel side-locking bar can also stop the increasingly popular break-in method of lock bumping.
