The Simplex 7000 2-3/8 Backset lock enjoys unanimously positive reviews on Amazon. One reviewer mentions the ease of reprogramming the lock when needed. This particular lock uses keypad entry rather than physical keys. The same user does caution readers to take care when drilling holes for the lock, as the swing of the door affects the pattern.

According to the review, the lock can be installed after drilling only one hole.
