Master Lock releases Electronic Keypad Deadbolt

(MILWAUKEE, WIS.) — August 11, 2010 — Finding a high quality electronic keypad deadbolt solution has become much easier in recent years, but finding the right product for multi-family properties can still be a headache. Although many of the leading products offer security and reliability in a variety of shapes and sizes, there remain issues regarding the sheer numbers and complexity any property manager must deal with. That’s why the new Electronic Keypad Deadbolt from the Master Lock Company is the perfect choice.

The Electronic Keypad Deadbolt offers several unique features. Eight keyway options support a wide range of installed systems, including Schlage C, Schlage E, Kwikset, Yale, Segal, Weiser, or Arrow door hardware keys and the Master Lock Recodable cylinder. The ergonomic design makes it easy to install and program as needed to update for any new tenants. A special administrative code restricts programming privileges, and the manual bolt operation also sets the Electronic Keypad Deadbolt apart from others in the marketplace with its easier operation.

"Our new Electronic Keypad Deadbolt offers two advantages with this manual bolt operation," said Billy B. Edwards, Jr., Certified Master Locksmith and Key Records Manager for Master Lock Company. "First is longer battery life since the batteries do not need to power the gears to actuate the bolt. The other benefit is the user’s assurance that the bolt is engaged in the doorframe and securely locked. This eliminates the potential for any rebound if the bolt encounters a misalignment with the door or frame."

The Electronic Keypad Deadbolt from Master Lock fits all doors with standard deadbolt prep and provides convenient, keyless access. It includes patented NightWatch deadbolt technology for enhanced security while meeting ANSI grade 2 standards. The simplified, six-button keypad is lighted and stores up to 20 different user codes. Available in four popular finishes, the angular shape of the keypad makes for easier viewing and installation requires no special wiring or drilling.

Property managers can always use more time and less hassle in their day. The new Electronic Keypad Deadbolt goes a long way to fulfill that promise. It is currently available through authorized Master Lock Company distributors and dealers and more information can be found at For more details, contact Bob Wolff with The Drucker Group ( at 224-532-1808.
