A customer purchased on November 1, 2017:

Compact, effective, and a great value Installing it was not particularly difficult, but you need to follow the directions in the order they give them, and you will be fine. I will see how long the batteries last. I set the lock every night when we go to bed and then in the morning I set it to "passage" mode so that everyone can get in and out of the pantry as needed.
