Kwikset 785-S Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to Install I order Kwikset locks for the entire house, but this double cylinder deadbolt was hard to install. The single was simple, but the double has long black screws that go in first and then screws on top of the black screws. The instructions also don't tell you have to take off the face place on the interior lock to get the black screws to attach. I ended up installing the lock upside down on the interior side because that was the only way I could get the key to release. It was frustrating, but it seems like a sold lock. Maybe I'll fix it when I'm less annoyed some other day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed After the smoke and dust of remodeling had cleared, we needed to replace our deadbolt locks. The Kwikset 785 SmartKey series fit the bill perfectly. Easy installation and in an extra 30 seconds, the new locks were rekeyed to match the rest of our keyed-entry locks. The last batch of Kwikset locks lasted over 25 years of daily use and probably could have kept going ... we just wanted a fresher look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product at a decent price This product works well. The only glitch I found was during installation that the instructions are a little off. I believe it is for a different model as it referenced some parts that did not exist. I downloaded the correct instructions from the web and then it all worked out after that. I will certainly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I bought this to replace a single cylinder kwikset lock that came with a handleset for the front door (lock and handle). I wanted to keep the same outside look so I did not have to repaint or do any drilling or fitting. This was perfect; I switched the guts and indoor portions of the lock and the outdoor finish is unchanged. Beautiful. As far as performance of the lock- the mechanism is smooth and the interior look is clean without any ugly protruding screws. Installation straightforward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deadbolt service This double dead-bolt is well made and finely crafted. The SmartKey option worked easily; as advertised. My only issue was a cover screw broke-off in the thread bolt during installation. The sservice rep quickly sent a replacement which arrived within 2 days. Excellent service! I'll order KwikSets again...from!
