Kwikset 816 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kiss my keys goodbye I cannot wait to get all of these landlord locks into all of my rental units. I have installed a few (very simple) and set up one with new keys. This unit had two doors so I just put the landlord lock on one door and keyed it for the same key from the existing door. Now my tenant only needs one key for both doors and I only need one key as well. Thank goodness. Once I have them all installed (11 of them) I still will only need one key to enter any of my units. I will throw out about 50 keys in the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great concept! Bought these deadbolts for several rentals that I have. It has a master key port that is hidden and so you have access to the rental if necessary. The only thing I haven't figured out is if I could re-key the master on various different deadbolts to the same master key or if I have to get a locksmith to do it. When I purchased these they keyed them to a single master before it was sent to me. Service was great and the customer service rep was great. Would definitely purchase from them again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST LOCK EVER I have use smart keys for my motel (small mom & pop), then I found this lock, I bought 11, found 2 master keys match, rekeyed all to new master, I used to carry ring of keys, now just another key on my car key ring. This saves me time and really saved me money, too!

  • A local key shop told me that these can only be rekeyed 4 times. Is that accurate?

    A. The Kwikset 816 Key Control Deadbolt can be keyed as many times as needed.

  • I am replacing my deadbolts how do I order them without being keyed? Or how do I go about getting you to key them with my exsisting key?

    A. The lock will be keyed no matter what. To have it keyed to your existing key you have two options: 1) Have the lock re-keyed by a locksmith, after the purchase or 2) Have a locksmith determine the key-code of your existing key, and provide that code at the time of your purchase. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

  • I'm looking for 5 locks, can they be all keyed the same?

    A. Yes, the items can all be keyed alike. Simply select key alike once the items are added to your cart. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions. Thank you.

  • Do these locks have to be locked with a key from the inside, or do they have a knob or lever for locking?

    A. The Kwikset 816 is operated from the inside with a thumb turn.

  • Do you have a model with the key working on the inside and outside with the same master key feature? What about spare keys, in the event one of three is lost, do I order those separately or are there blanks etc - How does this work ? Thanks

    A. The Kwikset 816 is only available in a single cylinder model.

  • Where can I purchase additional master keys. Only one comes with each deadbolt,

    A. Thank you for your question. We can request more keys from the vendor when you want to place your order.

  • What size hole saw does this need for installation?


    The Kwikset 816 is deigned to be installed in a 2-1/8" diameter bore hole.
