Double Cylinder Deadbolt Featuring SmartKey
I bought this lock for better security for my home. It is more sturdily built and more complex than the level 3 lock it replaced. It hasn't been put to the test yet, and I hope it never will be. When installing, be sure not to tighten the screws too tightly, as this will result in difficult, touchy operation. I would buy another one if I had another door that needed it.

Beware Double Deadbolt Smart Key - do both sides
This is a high grade ANSI product that was easy to install and works just fine. From my research, the smartkey is not only anti-bump, but extremely difficult to pick by even the pros. Beware, that with a smartkey double deadbolt, that you need to "learn" both sides of the deadbolt. Handlesets had a great selection, and their price beat the "big-box-boys".

I got the satin brushed nickel finish and it looks great. Installation was easy, the exterior key was a little fussy, so I re-keyed it to the key I received with it and it then worked as smooth as silk. I am very happy with my purchase, it looks great and installed easily. Great instructions.

Excellent Dead Bolt
The item is very well made and works great. This lock was installed on a very old door located at a farm, by myself. I have had very little experience installing door locks, and the directions clearly explained what preparation would be required for both the door and the door frame.

thorough and helpful
Very comprehensive selection of hardware with lots of helpful instructions and videos. It would be easy to buy the wrong kind of door hardware, but build.com sorts out all the choices and explains all the options very nicely.

Best price for the deadbolt. Quick delivery. Exactly as advertised. Only way to go (w/o going to the store)!
