Kwikset® Introduces Patented SmartKey® Re-Key Technology To New SmartKey Padlock Line

Stocks in this article: SPB

LAKE FOREST, Calif., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kwikset ®, a leading brand of the Hardware & Home Improvement (HHI) division of Spectrum Brands Holdings (NYSE: SPB), introduces its patented SmartKey® re-key technology to a new SmartKey Padlock line, enhancing security and allowing homeowners to use the same key to unlock their home and their padlocks. Using a simple three-step process, owners can re-key their padlocks in seconds to work with any Kwikset SmartKey lock on their home for ultimate one-key convenience.

"Having just one key to lock and unlock your home, shed, toolbox, locker and other secure spaces eliminates the worry of keeping track of multiple keys, solving an inefficiency that most people deal with daily," said Matt Richman, director of marketing. "Homeowners have enjoyed the superior security and ability to easily re-key their locks with SmartKey for many years, so we're thrilled to expand the feature to our new SmartKey Padlock line."

Designed with a hardened molybdenum shackle for superior resistance to sawing and cutting, and dual ball bearing locking for protection against pry and hammer attacks, Kwikset's SmartKey Padlock offers first-rate protection. Teamed with SmartKey's superior pick resistance and proven BumpGuard™ protection from lock bumping, Kwikset's SmartKey Padlock is one of the most secure on the market. A new key-retaining feature holds the key in the padlock until it is closed to ensure that it is not left unlocked, and to prevent locking the keys inside of the space.

Kwikset launched its patented side locking SmartKey re-key technology in 2008, giving builders, remodelers and new homeowners the convenience, flexibility and security of re-keying a lock an infinite number of times in seconds, without removing it from the door. SmartKey is drill and pick resistant, and certified the highest level of residential security. Its BumpGuard™ feature also protects against the common break-in method of lock bumping.
