Some folks think that sponsored posts are quite boring…or just simply selling out…but what if you really really love a product and would spend alot of your hardearned money on that item and would probably tell folks about it regardless of blogging? Because that is exactly how I feel about Kwikset SmartKey technology.
Most of you know that we are pulling a turtle’s pace in changing out our exterior door hardware. It’s slow. freaking. going. Our exterior door hardware of choice? The Kwikset Juno handset combo. You can get it here.
Why so slow? Well, there a ton of doors that lead from the inside to the outside. Let’s count…
Whew. FOURTEEN. Yes, you read that correctly. And that’s not even counting the double doors as two. That number just represents the doors that require deadbolt locks. I don’t even wanna think about the interior doors. Thinking about that makes me more tired than watching Biggest Loser (while I dine on the giant bowl of ice cream that sits on my belly). Yes, watching others workout makes me feel tired. I figure it’s like weight loss through osmosis. I am holding the remote control after all.
And that is why I jumped. literally. I got both feet at least two and a half inches off the ground when the fine folks at Kwikset offered me a couple new sets of door hardware. The befores & afters are pretty boring – before the knobs are pretty mismatched and screaming for the 80’s to take them back….now they are just sweet dark chocolate 🙂
But you wanna know why I am really excited about these doorlocks? I mean, besides the obvious – they look better and keep our family safer? (which by the way, SmartKey deadbolts have passed the most stringent lock picking standards and offer ANSI/BHMA certified Grade 1 security. Grade 1 security is the highest level of tested residential security available in the industry…cool huh?!)
The reason I like them is because ALL fourteen of my future exterior dead bolts will be able to be opened with a single key. any key I designate. which I can change at any time. WITHOUT A LOCKSMITH. That means any loaned out keys become useless whenever I decide. I love this amount of POWER. It’s making my head larger as I type. Oh and I can chunk my current janitor’s ring to the curb. Not that there isn’t a certain amount of allure that comes with the jingle 🙂
I asked Jer why he loves them – and this is what he said – “they are Consumer Reports rated as a Best Buy”…(Jer is a C.R. junkie) and “when Katie loses her keys, I don’t have to sweat about waiting on 14 doors being rekeyed.” Thanks honey.
Do you have a product in your house that you just want to sing about from the rooftops? Anything that feels like it was made just for you? Anyone else wanna drool over my door locks with me? It’s really fun 🙂 And easy. Just sit, stare and drool. Occasionally you wipe.
