Kwikset is part of the Hardware and Home Improvement Group of Stanley Black & Decker, which also owns lockset manufacturers Weiser and Baldwin. Kwikset locks have now evolved to include many Weiser features, and Weiser locks now use Kwikset's "SmartKey" self rekeyable lock technology and Kwikset keyways.

Similarly, it is asked, are Weiser locks any good?

When it comes to quality, security and style, both brands go hand in hand. Their traditional lines of door hardware are equally secure and durable. Weiser has become more popular for its high-quality residential locks, whereas Schlage is more popular for its durable commercial door hardware.

Similarly, who Makes Defiant locks? That's because Defiant locks are actually made exclusively for Home Depot by the Taiwanese manufacturer “Taiwan Fu Hsing Ind. Co. Ltd”, and have been for almost 25 years, according to one of the brand's promotional videos.

What door lock is the most secure?

Why we recommend the Kwikset 980
The Kwikset 980 single cylinder deadbolt is a close runner-up to the Schlage. It also has a top security rating and is resistant to lock bumping, picking, and drilling. It installs easily and fits most standard doors.

Are Baldwin locks better than Schlage?

Both use Schlage keyways, and though Baldwin used to have a better reputation for better high-low bitting on their keys, that has fallen out of the present and into lock and security history.

Is deadbolt lock safest?

Deadbolt locks are reasonably safe, when well made and installed properly. It's critical the bolt engages a solid frame and not just flimsy door trim, and the door is solid wood or metal. It doesn't take much strength to kick a poorly secured door in.

Does Smart Key work with any key?

If so, then it's a SmartKey lock. This must be a Kwikset key, as Kwikset and Schlage keys are totally different from one another (and won't work in each other's locks). So if the rest of your house uses Schlage keys…you'll need a separate key for the Kevo, unfortunately.

Can Home Depot key locks the same?

In most cases your local Home Depot can rekey new locks to match your old key. If you own a different brand lock you may still be able to have the new locks rekeyed by taking them to a locksmith, who can change the cylinders in the new locks to match those in the old locks.
