The Kwikset brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division (HHI), now offers one-key convenience through SmartKey Security technology in select Kobalt Tools 3000 Series tool chests, available at Lowe’s. This unique feature will allow homeowners and trade professionals alike the convenience of one-key access for their home or workshop.
SmartKey Security is a patented feature that enables homeowners and trade professionals to quickly and easily re-key their locks so all can be accessed using the same key. Previously just available in door hardware, SmartKey Security was designed to make security simple, while also including advanced features to protect homeowners from common break-in methods such as lock bumping and picking.
Kobalt Tools, known for its functional and durable tool chests for work at home and on the job, offers an assortment of organizational solutions to its customers. With the new 3000 Series tool chests available with SmartKey Security, the ability to mix and match different sizes to build a custom work station that is accessible with a single key is now possible.
With this industry-first partnership, Kobalt Tools and Kwikset bring a streamlined, secure solution to the tool storage category.
“Our partnership with Kobalt is an exciting venture as we are solving a palpable need across multiple service industries – one-key convenience between tool chest compartments – while also adding value for homeowners with Kwikset door hardware,” said Marty Hoffmann, Kwikset vice president of marketing, Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware and Home Improvement Division. “By incorporating SmartKey Security into Kobalt tool chests, Kwikset can help keep the tools that consumers have invested in safe and secure, while also prioritizing convenience. Consumers turn to Kwikset to protect what matters most to them, and we are very proud to be their trusted choice for home security and now one-key convenience for their tool storage.”
