Get absolutely secured with Kwikset!

Monday, March 26, 2018
How many times have we locked the doors at home before we leave home or before going to bed? There must be more than one type of security that we have installed to make sure everything's safe. After all, it's not just our possessions that we have to protect but our lives as well. 

When it comes to security, it all goes down to the quality of our locks. It's a common notion that spending on expensive ones always equates to better products. That is until I personally heard a story of how tough and effective Kwikset locks are from a friend who had one installed on his place of business.  Recently, I attended Roadshow Manila 2018 on the 15th of March at Blue Leaf Filipinas where Kwikset was featured.



At the event, Dave Albert, Vice President and Managing Director of APAC Spectrum Brands  discussed the company, its history, and commitment to providing innovative security features. Everyone was surprised to know that 250,000 door locks are manufactured per day.


Meanwhile, International Brand Manager Kevin Manager talked about the company's unwavering commitment to meeting homeowners’ needs which lead to the development of Kwikset's patented Smart Key Security™ deadbolts--key-less entry combination locks,  and Kevo™, door hardware with Microban® antimicrobial product protection. The history of Kwikset goes back to 1946 when Adolf Schoepe and Karl Rhinehart pioneered a tubular lock they named Kwikset. 



Part of Roadshow Manila are sets of demonstration to show features and innovations of Kwikset. We were shown how locks and door knobs were designed, were demonstrated how to pick locks and how impossible Kwikset locks can be opened, how their materials can withstand corrosion, and how tough their products are considering that hammering into them is no big deal. One last demo was about using an electric chainsaw to destroy their product. It was like a circus show as everyone was in disbelief.

Ammonia was used to see how Kwikset and other brands reacted to it. In this photo, the other brand darkened in a span of only five minutes. 

After hammering and sawing this Kwikset, it still survived

I personally tried lock picking a different brand which feels really cool until you come to a point when you realize your house can easily be intruded by anybody using simple tools.


At the end of it all, I was convinced by Kwikset and wouldn't be blinded by other brands. For more info about their products visit https://www.kwikset.com/
