          I can only recommend this lock for indoor use, as it has a key, which can easily be opened with a pick tool and pliers in seconds, with no signs of tampering. There are other smart key lock brands without the key option that I would recommend instead for external door use. Also, you need to keep the key accessible in case the battery dies. There are other models that let you use an external 9 volt to power the lock if the battery dies, but this is not one of them. The lock is relatively easy to use and install, but not the simplest I have used. If you have door knob installation experience, you can have this installed and coded in less than 10 minutes.

The lock is relatively easy to use and install, but not the simplest I have used. If you have door knob installation experience, you can have this installed and coded in less than 10 minutes. My biggest issue is that you must take care in installing the lock, following the direction exactly, or the lock will not operate, you must then disassemble, reset and re-install. The guide has clear troubleshooting tips, and no one likes to read the manual. I recommend this lock for inside doors only where you need to keep kids or visitors out, such as where you keep your power tools, basement shop, gun collection, etc... I put this on on my inside garage door, so I can leave the outside garage door open, but secure the inside of the house. I put another on my home office door. Very nice, but not as secure as other models, so I only use for interior doors to restrict access to the adults to certain rooms. If you have the luxury of many children with their own rooms, you could give them each a sense of privacy by giving each room a lock, but mommy and daddy get the override code of course. The included step by step picture instructions with pictures and text are not the best, but very complete. It does have an interesting feature that makes to press random numbers before putting in the actual code, so that no one can tell by your fingerprints what numbers are actually needed. Read Less

          The SmartCode 955 Commercial Grade touchpad electronic deadbolt lever is a 1-touch locking motorized deadbolt. With your personalized code, you can enter your home with the convenience of keyless entry and the back-lit keypad provides increased visibility. SmartCode 955 is easy to install, program and use, and operates on one 9 Volt battery. It also features SmartKey Security as the back-up keyway. This entry lever can be locked or unlocked by using the keypad or key from the outside as well as the turn button from the inside. The crisp, clean appearance of the Satin Nickel finish adds to the overall look of the product and brings a modern feel.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          If you just want to keep your kids out of your home office or power tool area, then this type of lock may make sense to purchase. The major problem is that it has a key option, which can easily be opened with a pick tool and pliers in seconds, with no signs of tampering.

          These handles are nicely packaged to ensure there is no rubbing or scuff marks during shipping. They come with installation screws for standard thickness drawer fronts. These are on 3 inch centers, so if you have large hands, these may seem a bit small if put on standard kitchen drawers. The finish is nice and it has an appealing design, but may need some additional cleaning attention if used in the kitchen as the design may make cleaning from dirty hands a bit more difficult. Easily installs with a screwdriver if the drawers are already drilled. Would have liked to see a drilling template included, but can easily make one from scrap lumber.

          Well packaged so they come without any scuff marks from rubbing. Easily installs with a screwdriver if replacing old handles or into pre-drilled drawer fronts. Comes with screws. I would like a drilling template to be included in the box, but could easily make one from scrap lumber. Has a nice design and finish. Make sure you match the center size if replacing on pre-drilled drawers as this one has a 3-3/4inch center. This handle is a good size if you have large hands and want to use all your fingers when pulling open a drawer.

          Crescent heavy-duty fence pliers is the only tool needed for work on metal or wood posts. This tool has starting and pulling joints on 1 jaw with a corrugated hammer on the other. The heavy-duty lock-joint construction increases the tool life and the cushion grips offer increased comfort and control.

          Crescent brand, a name you can trust for quality. I would have preferred a bit larger hammer edge that was flat instead of ridged, but otherwise this tool has multiple features for the job it was designed for. Snipping, pulling, hammering, cutting. If you have small hands, then this tool may not be a good fit. I wear large size gloves and can barely use this tool with one hand. I mostly got it to remove nails and staples, and will probably never using the cutters on the 2 sides of the pivot. I like to reclaim the wood from pallets, and this gives me options in prying apart and pulling out nails and staples. Keep it clean and dry and it should last a couple lifetimes.
          Pros: Durable, Long-Lasting, Strong
          Cons: grip large for small hands
