Raleigh Locksmith in Raleigh, NC - Wake County



The Better Resetter

(Patent Pending)

Quite simply the best and only tool capable of resetting BOTH Schlage and Kwikset user resettable locks!


  • The Better Resetter is a new tool designed to reset the Schlage Securekey™ and Kwikset Smartkey™ cylinders when you do not have a working key available.

  • The Better Resetter consists of two combs; one on each end of the tool.  These combs are used to depress the wafers inside the cylinder to a precise depth, allowing the cylinder to be rotated to the reset position.


These locks require that the user have a working key in order to reset the lock. A scenario involving no working keys to the lock will greatly increase the time and frustration involved with resetting these locks. Also, with the popularity of these locks increasing, and Home Depot and Lowes both selling Smartkey and Securekey formats almost exclusively now, a  locksmith is likely to come across a scenario requiring a reset tool  on a regular basis. The tool is simple and compact and is the only tool currently available that can reset BOTH the Kwikset and Schlage user resettable cylinders.  

NOTE: The cylinder must be out of the lock and in hand, as shown below, to be able to use the Better Resetter.
