Kwikset is committed to delivering unmatched security features to homeowners and puts the safety of our customers aboveall else. SmartKey cylinders feature ANSI Grade 1 security, are bump-proof and highly pick resistant while also passing the most stringent security standards, UL 437, par 11.6 & 11.7.

Are Kwikset and Schlage pins the same? Kwikset and Schlage have different pin depths, so if you're keying them to code, the two aren't interchangeable. Also, Kwikset OEM pins have a flat, beveled tip, while Schlage OEM are more pointed. That said, the diameters are the same, so each manufacturer's pins will fit the other'slocks.

Which is better Weiser or Schlage? DOOR LOCKS: WEISER VS. SCHLAGE. Weiser has become more popular for its high-quality residential locks, whereas Schlage is more popular for its durable commercial door hardware. However, both brands have ahuge selection of locks that come in all kinds of styles and offer different levels of security.

Can keyless door locks be hacked? Not only can many smart locks be hacked, but they also are proven to have other vulnerabilities like the ability to be removed with a flathead screwdriver. Since smart locks often work with an existing deadbolt, this may mean they have thesame level of security as traditional looks.

How does Kwikset smart key work? When the user wants to rekey the lock, the working key is used to rotate the plug 90° clockwise. A special tool known as the "Smart Key" is used on the small hole to the left of the keyway. This physically disengages the sidebar and wafers from the guide pins and allows the working key to be removed.
