Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: EZlock ELC01 4-in-1 Electronic Keyless Backlit Keypad Door Lock, Unlock by Code, Card, Code+ Card, Mechanical Key (Electronics)
Despite coming from a seller that I’ve never heard of, I took a chance on these locks to secure some interior doors and I am quite pleased with my purchase. All of the exterior and interior components of the lock, minus circuitry and wires, are metal and feel reassuringly solid and sturdy when handled. Batteries are not included and there are no spare parts, but all of the screws and hardware fit together well with no malformed angles or inexplicable variations in geometry – definitely a welcome departure from the IKEA furniture I had assembled earlier that day.
The actual installation was fairly easy. The first lock will probably take 30+ minutes if you, like me, enjoy familiarizing yourself with what you are installing, but after that, subsequent lock mounting can easily be completed in less than 10-15 minutes. The instructions are passably translated into English from their original language, and I, personally, had no issues understanding anything, but be advised that there will be some grammatical mistakes and odd phrasing.
Programming the lock after installation is also quite simple, especially since the included Mifare cards were already added to the locks memory and would open the door immediately after I put in the batteries. Speaking of these Mifare cards, there are two included with each lock, as well as two mechanical keys, however, I had no issue in programming the lock to accept other Mifare cards that we had lying around the office. All in all, I found myself spending around a minute to program each new user.
All in all, if you can overlook the lack of a well known brand and native English instructions, I think you will be pleased with the features and construction of these locks. Their support staff seems eager to communicate and help, so much so that I have received no less than 3 emails since my purchase, promising their assistance in the event of any problems – so far I have had 4 locks installed for a little under a month at the time of writing (9/9/2016) and have had no problems. For the price and the quality, I have found few locks on Amazon that are comparable.

Hard to install, doesn’t always work when installed., October 10, 2016
By cthompsh –
I was very excited for this keypad lock but from the very beginning installation was very difficult and the pictured were not clear which screws went where. There is an installation video provided on USB but my laptop was stolen hence why I wanted a new lock for my house. Maybe the video is more helpful but I couldn’t tell you about it.
Once it was installed I was happy for a few days, then it started intermittently not working. My dog walker said his code did not work that day. I got home and my code also did nothing. I got out the physical key and that also would not unlock the door. Good news is apparently my house is safe, bad news is I can’t get in either.
My husband reprogrammed it or something and it worked for a few more days and then did the same thing again. This has been a huge hassle and I am very frustrated.

This âlockâ is a liability, just waiting to happen.If you think this is actually a door lock or will provide any protection from access, think again. No home, office, or any door for that matter is even remotely secure, with a device bypassed so easily. The description claims 4 âunlockâ options, but wait, there is a fifth option! For those who have already purchased and installed, my wife was the one who discovered the fifth option to gain access, so I donât recommend trying this. Just apply a little more pressure on the handle and the latch will engage and retract. No pick-set and no MacGyver method. Just apply more pressure and youâre in. This is just an expensive gadget and should make no claims to locking or imply any sense of security. I feel obligated to share this with potential buyers and warn all that this device is NOT going to secure a door. I sent the video to the seller, EZEC. Their response was to blame me for turning the handle too hard. They offered a replacement handle at a reduced cost but asked that I wait about a month. Wow! Yeah, I’ll just leave that door unlocked until you guys have time to get around to it.
Thanks, but I purchased a Schlage FE595 PLY 626 Flex lock as a replacement as well as a Kwikset 92640-001 Deadbolt. You can’t over pressure the these LOCKs. Both have keypads but no rifd. Remember, with the EzLock, you can gain entry just by turning the handle beyond 45 degrees, so why waste time trying to program or even use rifd. Itâs so easy, a 3 year old could pull down or hang on the handle and Taadaa, Open-Says-ME. I’ll take the peace of mind that my door is secure over this trash, any day.
Finally, this device requires that you drill an additional hole in your door. Once this device fails, and it will fail, you must replace it with the same faulty device or find a real lock that will cover the additional hole in your door.
