When was the last time you bought a door knob? What are the things that you considered? Style? Price? Or do you highly consider the safety feature of it? Door knobs are our houses’ first line of protection. So, if you’re thinking “oh! A Lock is a Lock. Regardless of its brand” let me shed the same light I got recently.
How many times have you lost your home key and tried alternative keys like a bob pin, knife, or (my personal favorite) a pvc card? You may have broken a few sweat but succeeded for sure. Now, imagine if someone would try to break-in to your home, how easy for the intruder to just get in.
Kwikset, a leading lock manufacturer in the world, opened its door with Kwikset Roadshow Manila 2018 to showcase not only the stylish designs of their products but to also educate Filipinos of the importance of every door lock’s safety feature.
Dave Albert, VP and Managing Director of APAC Spectrum Brands INC., warmly welcomed everyone to the event. Then it was off to the different booths that showed why Kwikset is far different form the other locks in the market.
First stop was the product station where Alivin Tan, Asia Sub Region Product Marketing Manager of Specterum Brands Inc, showed and let participants experience how easy it was to pick a lock on the common deadbolt lock that most of us use, which got me thinking, how easy it can be for intruders to get inside a typical Filipino household. And then we also got to witness how Kwikset locks work, not even a single person succeeded in attempting to pick it open. From the traditional key-inserted deadbolt to the sophisticated touch screen that has an additional safety feature, to the convenient and easy to use Kevo deadbolt technology that turns your mobile device to a door key.
If you’re not yet impress with Kwikset products and maybe you’re thinking “how can this product look well with your new interior?” booth number two is a must see for you. The Style station shows the variety of designs and inspiration behind every door knob and lock. Form massive architectural structures like the Sydney Opera house to common household fixtures and materials. Every detail and feature were well thought off, so you’ll be sure that whatever the design of your house is, there is a Kwikset product that will fit your stylish home.
Moving over to the last booth Kevin Sander, Product Manager International for Kwikset, showed how every part of Kwikset products is made and tested to uphold the objectives of the brand that is to provide safety to every households. Kwikset and competing brand’s products where put to chemical and physical test including the use of an electric saw. The tests truly exhibited that a Kwikset lock is a must have to every door in every house everywhere.
Kwikset products are the most durable, stylish, and the safest door knobs and locks in the market. After attending the Kwikset Roadshow Manila 2018 I wont mind paying a little extra for the safety of my family because as I’ve learned from Marc Jarvis, General Manager of Asia Sub Region of Spectrum Brands Inc., “A Lock is Not Always A Lock”
