As we’ve previously told you, having a master lock system is a huge benefit to you as a landlord. Locks like the Kwikset SmartKey lock now allow for you to re-key the lock without removing the cylinder! This is a huge time saver and makes it well worth the investment into these kinds of locks!
Below are 4 pictures showing an example of how the Kwikset SmartKey locks work. At first glance, the lock appears no different than any other deadbolt. However a small hole allows for the front plate to spin 180 degrees, covering the resident key hole and exposing another key hole. This second hole, shown in the last picture, is for your master key and allows you to quickly & easily re-key your lock!
