SOURCE: cannot remove disk that covers screws to tighten my lock

The screws are located on the non locking side of the handle. To get the cover off most pop off by placing a small screwdriver behind the edge and gently prying. Paint/varnish will make this harder so you my have to take a razor and cut around it.

Please rate.

SOURCE: the key for my kwikset door handle lock won't

Hi,
The answers to your problem are very numerous.
Usually what has happened is that when the lock was installed the pins (the part of the lock that rides on the cut part of the key) were not facing down. This allows dirt and debris to collect in the pin holes and also if a spring breaks it won't push the pin up to the cut part of the key. Some locks you can't even rotate to a position that faces down.
What I suggest is removing the knob or lever lock from the door and blowing out the key hole with compressed air. Work the key back and forth through the lock and blow it out again. If this doesn't work ... try and get a refund or a replacement from wherever you got it. Remember your time is worth money and so is your frustration. Don't waste allot of time trying to fix something that can be replaced relatively cheaply.
Thanks,

How do i attach the door lever?

Kwikset lever handles are held on with hex set screws. A wrench is included in the package. It's either a 3/32" or 2.5 mm. Note that the lock must be unlocked to remove or install the outside handle.

The inside door knob came off of the Kwikset keyed door lock. How do I re-attach the knob?


There is probably a small set screw (hex head) on the bottom of the knob. If that doesn't work try just pushing it back on.

I am replacing my door knob and replacing it with similar lock door knob by Kwikset. I measured from the end of the door to the middle of the hole where the knob goes into which is 2 3/8". The problem...


Most kwikset locksets will work on either 2 3/8 or 2 3/4 inch setback. There should be two holes on the latch where door knobs fit thru the door. If yours does not have this option I would suggest that you get one that will match your setback.Hope this helps.Thanks.

Change batteries on kwikset pushbotton lock.


Hi,
If it's the lock I think it is, all you need to do is to remove the two screws on the inside of the door that holds the lock to the door. Pull straight out on the whole assembly. You should see the exposed battery once you have removed the outer case and handle.
Hope This Helps,
