Use the proper size alan wrench to tighten or loosen face plate . That is if you have not stripped that hole by putting the wrong tool to it. Under that plate is the 2 main screws to hold the hardware tight to the door.

How do I tighten a deadbolt lock with no visible screw? It has key on both sides. Inside plate has 2 holes in it that I thought would rotate to expose screws. It does not. How do I proceed?


On the inside of the door, the lock has a trim ring around it. Look for a slot on the ring, place a flat screw driver into the slot and twist the screw driver to remove the trim ring.

How to tighten up a loose face plate of a Kwikset Deadbolt door lock. This specific deadbolt lock doesn't have screws on either side. The face plate is so loose that I can spin it clockwise but it never...


The exterior faceplate is not the thing that fastens to the door, it just supports the lock cylinder and covers the hole in the wood. Inside the door the cylinder has a thin plate with two screws going from the inner door surface into the back of the part you put the key into. Removing the big nightlatch block you will see a metal tang on the inside sticking out. The two screws will be just to the left and right of the tang and so you can draw the lock cylinder inward from there, which will squeeze the outside faceplate bezel into the front door surface. These are great locks, I am installing one from the 1940's which even opens up to let you reverse the bolt angle and make the door open outwards if you want to for big industrial shop doors.

Loose Kwikset Chelsea Deadbolt


I just had the same problem as samrpetrich with a loose kwikset deadbolt. Here's how I fixed it - on the inside of the door, take off the latch that flips the deadbolt in and out using a very small allen key. There is a round plate cover that is snapped on top of the inside deadbolt mechanism. If you look on the bottom aspect of this round plate you'll see where it snaps on; once I saw where to apply pressure it came off easily - taking off this plate exposed the two screws beneath that were loose. Once I tightened these, I snapped the plate cover back on, but the dead bolt latch back and everything is tight again. Hope this helps.
