This is not a horrible lock. To the contrary, its pick resistance is better than most residential locks sold on the US market (which isn't saying much). What I take issue with is the "Exceeds Maximum Security" marketing nonsense. Putting aside the metaphysical question of whether that's even possible, consumers reading this packaging would reasonably believe that this lock provides excellent pick resistance. Not so. While it is better than most (particularly, most other Kwiksets), it is still child's play for an experienced picker to defeat this lock.
