Defiant door locks generally receive good reviews, averaging around four out of five stars from Home Depot customers. There are, however, some concerns over the quality of the locks.
Some reviewers note difficulty installing the Single Cylinder Stainless Steel Deadbolt. One reviewer says installation is easy as long as the door has the correct size precut hole and is aligned properly. Some reviewers like the price and looks but lament a lack in quality. One landlord says he regularly has to fix his Defiant locks. Reviewers of each version of Defiant's Mortise lock enjoy the old look and good functionality. Multiple reviews said this lock fits their old doors perfectly.
