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.

  2. Not bad, not great.

    Emily Grove (verified owner)

    The good things about this lock is it can be used outside (it’s mechanical so it’s water proof essentially.) Relatively easy to set up with the “programming” of the code. Simple process if you follow instructions. However, the cons are about the actual installation itself, at least for our nonstandard situation. I’d hire a pro if at first you find it a difficult process.

    The code isn’s sequential! It’s a deterrent but not a failsafe lock so keep that in mind. Maybe a good idea would be to have a secondary lock on an inner door.

  4. Here's my review

    Lyn Felton (verified owner)

    I’ve just recently successfully installed this lock, but it was far from an easy process. The issues I encountered:
    I followed the instructions for a 1.75″ thick door, which said to break off one of the two tabs on the spindle. I broke the second tab off the spindle only to find that it protruded 5/8″ through the door. I then used my hacksaw to cut another 1/8″ off. So a carefully shortened the pin (it took 3 trys) until I could tighten the bottom thru-screw securely.

  6. inferior product

    JMS Const Co (verified owner)

    I installed 4 of these on a commercial job. I have been doing this for 35 yrs, so I am no dummy. 1 gave me problems from begining, latch would not retract all the way not allowing door to open. I was sent a new latch and fixed that lockset. Now another lockset is doing the same thing, with complaints from customer. they have a very cheesy feel to them, not a solid feel. I have wasted 6 hrs of unpaid time on these locksets, who pays for that? I don’t expect the customer to pay !

    We have been unable to install this lock properly, having tried unsuccessfully 3 times so far. We will be trying again this spring, when we return to our shore home.

    This is an excellent digital mechanical lock. I’ve been using it on an outside barn door in lots of rainy weather. It is holding up very well and is very convenient – no keys to carry! I would, and will, buy again.

  9. Lockey 2835 mechanical keyless outdoor lock

    Terry Hopple (verified owner)

    Love it! We have a large lot with multiple gates and it allows for ease of movement around the property without keys or maintaining batteries. The only way to go is Gokeyless! Also they will set any code you like at the factory before it ships be sure to ask.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. A

    Yes, you can. The code will stay engaged until you operate the handle and open the door. 

  2. A

    This is a mechanical lock so it only allows a single code at a time. If you need to have multiple codes for various people you would need to go with an electronic lock like the FE595. 

  3. A

    The lock comes with an adjustable backset for 2 3/8 to 2 3/4, however, the thickness only goes to 1 3/16 so you are 1/16th too big to fit in the current setup. You would have to use a shim or manually modify the lock in order to fit the extra 1/16th. We would recommend the shim rather than modifying the lock as that will void the warranty. 

  4. A

    You are able to choose any 3 - 6 digit code and you can have as many numbers or letters in the code as long as it is 3 - 6 digits in total and you only use each number or letter one time. 

  5. A

    Yes, that is correct. With mechanical locks sequence does not matter as you can only press each button one time and once it is pressed it remains used until the code is cleared either by entering or using the clear button. When it comes to choosing codes it is recommended that you use four digits and that you separate them on the keypad so they are not in sequential order. Keep in mind that a person must exactly guess which four digits you are using and they must not press any other numbers as that will cause a code failure. So while you may be able to press in the code in any direction to work there is still guesswork involved for someone attempting to figure it out unless you were to use something as obvious as a house number or birth date. 

  6. A

    Yes, and depending on if you have a metal gate we would recommend that you get the metal gate box K-BXDIG23 as well. Keep in mind the gate box would have to be cut and welded into a metal gate. If you have wood or vinyl a standard install is all you will need to do for it to work. 

  7. Answered by the admin Theoretically yes, but when you enter a code you will have to pull up on the handle instead of down.
  8. Answered by the admin No this is a pushbutton mechanical lock with no electronic tracking.
  9. Answered by the admin Yes, it is not required for the trim plate to installed for this lock to function.
  10. Answered by the admin This lock will not cover the top deadbolt hole when installing in the lower handle hole of the door. In most cases with a commercial door, you would need a cover plate to span that distance. Take a look at the link below. https://www.gokeyless.com/product/donjo-14cw-wrap-plate/
