Step up to designer styles and superior security with Kwikset signature series products. The 980 deadbolt is both tough and attractive. The Venetian Bronze finish is hand-rubbed to reveal unique bronze highlights and provides a rich and warm complement to the product's style. The double cylinder deadbolt is operated by a key on both sides. SmartKey Re-key Technology allows you to control who has access to your home. Re-key the lock yourself in seconds in 3 easy steps. Have you recently moved or had a child lose a key. It's time to re-key. SmartKey provides the highest level of residential security and features BumpGuard to protect against lock bumping.
Smartkey fails on 2 locks within 2 years. Pure junk!

No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought 3 sets of Kwikset double cylinder and entry levers for exterior doors. I wanted to easily match other door locks. The Smartkey hardware seems to be the problem. Eventually, your key won't work and you'll find yourself locked out unless you've got another door for access. Online forums confirm my worst fears. I'll return these ASAP and try to find something above "builder grade."
