Known for their construction, Kwikset deadbolts are made of all metal components and feature an adjustable backset deadbolt latch that will accommodate all of the most common ways a door could be prepped. Reversible design will work for right or left handed doors. New Kwikset deadbolts include SmartKey Re-key technology. You can re-key the lock yourself in seconds. We can get your Kwikset deadbolts keyed to match your keyed Kwikset entrance knobs, levers, and handle set.
Deadbolts from this trusted brand are available in two functions: single cylinder and double cylinder.
Single cylinder deadbolts are the most commonly purchased Kwikset deadbolt. A single cylinder deadbolt has a thumb turn on the interior side of the deadbolt with a keyed cylinder on the outside. This lets you lock the door with the quick turn of the thumb turn. To get in from the outside you must have a key. Series 780 and 980 single cylinder deadbolts comply with section 4.13.9 ADA requirement.
Double cylinder deadbolts are not as commonly used. The double cylinder has a keyed cylinder on both inside and outside of the door. You have to use a key to unlock the door from the inside as well as the outside. Some people use double cylinder handle sets on doors with glass panels or sidelites so that an intruder wouldn't be able to break the glass and reach inside to unlock the door. Double cylinder deadbolts are not recommended for most applications where emergency exiting would be a concern since you would have to find the key to unlock the door and exit the building.
Please contact us with any questions you may have while shopping this wide selection. Our friendly team is always happy to assist you as needed.

Q: Are Kwikset deadbolts safe? A: Yes, you can rest assured that Kwikset deadbolts are safe. This brand is highly praised for the way it prioritizes security, putting each of its products through rigorous testing to meet all the requirements of the BHMA from the American National Standards Institute. The brand has 70 years of experience providing their customers with peace of mind. Q: Are double key deadbolts illegal? A: No, there is no law against using double key deadbolts. However, different cities and states may have local property and fire codes that prohibit the use of double cylinder deadbolts, so make sure you check with your local authorities before using these locks in a commercial facility. Keep in mind that double key deadbolts make it harder for people to get out of a building in the case of an emergency, since they have to take the time to unlock the door with a key on either side. Q: Is Kwikset a good brand? A: Yes, Kwikset is not only a “good” brand, but it’s one of the most highly respected brands in the industry. The company has dedicated itself to helping customers feel safe since 1946, putting the safety of their customers before anything else.
