Sure. You need to install the key in the cylinder and keep it turned so the pins are on top. Then you install the pins one at a time in each hole until all the pins fit level with the top of the cylinder, You will probably have to re-arrange the pins once or twice to get the correct length in the correct hole but once all the pins are level you're home free.

The springs (which should be all the same length) go in the cylinder before the pins I believe. It's been a long time since I've done any lockwork so you might have to experiment. Lots of luck and hope I was some help.

Kwickset door handle fell apart on my front door help


Kwikset locks are inexpensive because they do not have replaceable parts. Buy a new one.

By the time the lock breaks, it's probably time to get different keys, but if you have so many keys in the hands of people you cannot contact, or you have more than three other locks keyed alike, and you must have the new lock work with the same keys as before, the place where you buy new locks probably has someone who can rekey the new lock to your old keys. Kwikset also sells locks that you can rekey to other Kwikset keys yourself. They are more expensive than other locks of the same type, but could save money long term, especially if you find a need to rekey your locks a lot (lots of visitors, part-time tenants or roommates, your kids lose their keys a lot, etc.)

We have a kwikset smart key and the deadbolt part worked fine for months and then suddenly it won't work. Not happy. What to do? Shirley Johnson


You will have to buy a new lock once the "smartkey" locks up its toast. Very bad design unlike the traditional kwikset pin tumbler lock which can be repaired if something like this were to happen but hardly ever does.

Kwikset Smart Key Deadbolt Won't Unlock


Kwikset Smart Key locks are complete junk. I am a locksmith and I am constantly going from house to house replacing these "dumb key" locks with original kwikset pin tumbler locks. What happens is either your key or the wafers inside the lock wear slightly, slightly enough to cause your keys to not turn, and since these locks cannot be picked due to a side bar system, they must be drilled off and thrown away when this happens Unless you have another access point to get in the house. If you do remove lock from the inside, throw it in the trash, buy original kwikset and replace.

Key won't turn deadbolt


Try using your smartkey to "rekey" the lock to the original key... there's really no reason to buy the smartkey system unless you change locks alot... they are meant for the apartment industry more than anything I believe... in any case, the smartkey system allows you to rekey the lock without removing it from the door... so, use the original key and use the smartkey to rekey it or select a different cut and key it to that key... should solve your problem.

Last resort... take it back to HD for replacement.

Lost entry door key, need to rekey kwikset deadbolt


Unfortunatley you need to have the key to remove the cylinder. You can take it to a locksmith that can pick" it to remove the cylinder and make you a key but it may be more cost effective to replace it.

Sorry not to be mre help.

Lost keys to my Entry door lock


Visit your local Home Depot and purchase a Kwikset re-keying kit. They're inexpensive and work fine but stay alert and follow the instructions properly. This kit comes complete with proper pins as well as new keys. Good Luck!
