I too am a State Licensed Locksmith with 5 years of experience and why Kwikset still continues to market this product is beyond me. Its security is very poor and burglars are aware of it.

You are much better off buying standard Kwikset locks and if you need to re-key them for cheap you can be a re-key kit for around $10 which are sold at most hardware stores (as one user said he did).

Schlage had a similar product and once they discovered this vulnerability, they pulled it off of the shelves and have ceased making them.

I am not bashing this product, I am simply backing up the other locksmith's post and am serving the public and their safety.
