The 98015SMTCP single-cylinder deadbolt featuring SmartKey technology is part of Kwikset’s Signature Series of products and is both tough and attractive. In addition to its ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 certification, the 980 deadbolt features SmartKey re-key technology, an innovation that gives you the ability to re-key your locks in a matter of seconds without removing the lock from your door. The SmartKey cylinder features a stainless steel side locking bar, racks, and pins for increased strength and security, and patented side locking bar technology offers improved security by protecting against lock bumping, an attack technique used to defeat conventional pin and tumbler locks. Add it to a keyed knob or lever for additional security.

Simple Re-Keying
You can re-key your lock in three easy steps: Insert the functioning key and turn it 1/4 turn clockwise; insert and remove the SmartKey learn tool and remove the functioning key; insert the new key and turn it 1/2 turn counter clockwise. The lock will then be re-keyed without the hassle and cost of replacing the entire lock or removing it from your door. All of this allows you to feel confident in providing temporary access to neighbors, babysitters, contractors, and household help, knowing that any lost, loaned, or unreturned keys become useless.

Very Good security deadbolt with even higher security of user changeable keys A google search will talk about this product’s reported ability to prevent lock-bumping along with lots of amateur and semi-pro locksmith sites that will basically show you that any lock can be defeated by someone with enough time, energy, and knowhow.
