Lockwood Keyless Digital Deadbolt

Updated on February 4, 2014

Lockwood Digital Deadlock

I have to admit generally, I am not too keen on electronic locks. They are not as reliable as mechanical locking systems and many have serious security issues.

This is the latest offering from Lockwood Australia. It is a step ahead of many electronic locks on the market and is of a high quality.

It boasts some impressive functions and access control measures.

It allows for up to 20 user codes. It has 1 master pin code for accessing the programming section. It also has a visitor code which can be set to be deleted in a certain time period of up to 2 weeks.

The touch screen pad means there are no mechanical buttons to press and it uses a cryptic code function to confuse onlookers who might otherwise be able to work out your pin code.

The lock is powered by 4 AA batteries and it has a low voltage warning to let you know when it is time to change the batteries.

It also has a key override which in the event of flat batteries or electronic failure allows you to open the door.

Out of the box

These are the parts the lockwood digital deadlock is shipped with. It comes with an internal knob mechanism which is where the batteries are inserted as well as the mechanical workings and motor to lock and unlock the bolt.

You can also see the external keypad and cylinder assembly, and the 2 plastic spacers, one for the inside and one for the outside.

It comes with 4 AA batteries, the locking bolt and screw pack.

There is also a detailed instruction booklet, not shown here.

The lock uses a standard lockwood barrel that can be replaced to suit other lockwood keying systems. The lock cylinder and barrel is manufactured to tight tolerances and uses stainless steel springs and brass bottom pins as would be expected of lockwood.

Anti pick top pins

The top pins in the cylinder are of a spool pin design. Spool pins have been used by locksmiths for many years to resist lock picking. They are designed to resist picking and lock bumping. Lockwood refers to this as kinetic defense.

      Hi Casey, I think from memory the standard 201 cylinder tailpiece will work. It might need slightly modifying... Haven't seen one in a while. But a 201 cylinder can be bought cheaper then a new 001.

      Hi, if a Lockwood 001 Touch has its tailpiece cut too short can it be replaced with one from a normal Lockwood 001 deadlatch ? Just wondering as attempted install today but accidentally cut 5mm too short to reach lock:(
