    "Pros. No keys to lose. Codes are changeable when necessary. Some locks have quick code change facility. Electronic versions can log door entries

    Cons. Codes can be seen. Often code sequence does not matter. Wear on buttons can give code away.

    Prices vary greatly whether mechanical or electronic. As in everything you get what you pay for!!!"
