A best-seller since its debut in early 2009, the Lockey 2835 Digital Door Lock is one of only two brands of 100% mechanical door locks we’ve offered.  It comes down to safety and performance.  From the tumbler pins, handing pin, internal plate screws, push buttons, and craftsmanship of the front and back lock housings, you won’t find anything about the Digital Door Lock to call wimpy.  If you’re beginning a new keyless entry system or expanding an existing one, the Digital Door Lock is a phenomenal choice.

When you free yourself from keys you eliminate the hassle of dealing with them.  Everyone knows keys get lost or misplaced — who hasn’t screamed “Where are my keys!”  Imagine never losing your keys again, ever.  Get the 2835 today and you won’t.  It lets you program in a secret pass-code you, your family, or your employees can all use.  Your time (and money!) will never again go to waste looking for your keys, or waiting for someone to let you back in.  How secure is it?  Put it this way, your existing locks that lend themselves to key-bumping, and unlocked or propped open doors, are not keeping you safe.

Standard locks — because of keys — present a risk.  A new lock like the 2835 comes 100% bump-proof.  Security, without the key hole. What if it fails?  It won’t.  This lock culminates from 30+ years of functional testing.  It’s based on the same design as the original Digital Door Lock 2210 series.  They don’t fail.  And no one can ‘knock’ the lock open or determine its cipher by performing secret techniques.

Chronicled in security and law enforcement circles is the fact the majority of crimes — resulting in theft, injury, or even death — get recorded as crimes of opportunity.  A door not always locked, or susceptible to key bumping, invites crime. Customizing your access with innovative door hardware gives you a prescription for security success.

Where can you install this lock?  Numerous places, because it auto-locks.  You can put it on your home & office entry and interior doors, gates, or any vulnerable points throughout your property where you need to restrict access, without disrupting the ease with which you and others come and go.  To meet building codes, the levers on both sides measure full-size and comply with the American’s Disability Act.  You cannot force or kick the levers off.

From the inside, you can exit freely at all times.  A passage feature even comes built-in.  This proves useful for when you want everyone to enter freely without needing to punch-in the code.  On the outside housing you can quickly change the lock’s function from normal, to passage mode.  The door will latch shut, but not lock.  This comes in handy at your next office party when you invite your clients and vendors in.  Also great for your kids’ birthdays so you can avoid giving out the code to the parents and their kids.

The 2835 upgrades any of your key-in knob or key-in lever locks.  For your doors with a deadbolt above your knob, we recommend replacing the deadbolt with our Lockey M210.  For special situations where you need the door to auto-lock each time, you could remove your deadbolt altogether, and then use a cover plate behind the 2835.  The plate covers up the hole left by your deadbolt.

Installation on common doors takes you no longer than vacuuming out your car — and about the same amount of effort.  Requiring only one extra screw hole, you can show off your new keyless entry system the day your lock arrives.  No need to worry about the elements either when you install the Lockey 2835 on an exterior door.  Heavy rain, snow or ice won’t phase it, nor extreme warm or cold.  Even a highly concentrated salt-air ocean environment won’t cause it to lose its form or function.

  1. Not reliable

    Dorothea Darden

    Bought 8 locks about a year ago. I had a problem early on on one that kept it from locking. The keys on the others often stick but otherwise work. The color coating has worn off on all that are used regularly. They feel solid fresh out of the box but aren’t as good as I expected

  2. Didn't last

    Ryan Parsons (verified owner)

    This product worked well at first but it broke almost immediately and then within less than a year it was completely useless.

  3. Lockey 2835. Very small. After 4 months, its not working good.

    LOCKEY 2835 – Very Small. After 4 months, its not working as smooth as it first did (turns hard) (verified owner)

    This is much smaller than I anticipated. After 4 months the handle is beginning to turn harder and harder. My last mechanical lock lasted about 3 years and quit working. I’m beginning to think I just need to go to a battery one although I dislike using batteries when I can go without them, or maybe I need to get a commercial lock which cost almost 3 times as much, at least they would last.

  4. As represented

    Tom McMeekin (verified owner)

    Lock is well made and expect it to hold up to salt air.

  5. Great Lock!

    Russell Marcks (verified owner)

    I purchased one of these sometime around 1995. It was the deadbolt version for an exterior door (house entrance) and is still going strong. I recent purchased one for my Yacht Club as an interior door model with lever in and out. These are great locks. If one can get over the arbitrary bias of a mechanical vs an electrical lock, this is bar far the better choice. I couldn’t recommend this any more than I do.

    I love this product and installed about 8 of them over the recent years. My only concern would be is that if you don’t get the spindle and the latch completely and utterly square the latch always binds.

  10. Perfect for near the ocean

    Matt (verified owner)

    I live a couple blocks away from the ocean. Everything rusts of its cheaply made. These are made to withstand the elements and have worked seamlessly so far. It’s also nice that there’s no electronics to go bad as well 🙂

    Yes, this feature can be disabled permanently by removing the pin that is set in the Y location.

    The handing of this lock is reversible, so the handle can be changed to work in either direction.

    Yes, there is an installation video available for this model from the manufacturer, LockeyUSA.

  10. Answered by the admin

    You certainly can! With the lock removed from the door, any slot that has a red tumbler loaded is going to be part of the combination.
