SOURCE: how do i remove exterior handle kwikset titan?

Hi,
You need to insert the key and turn it clockwise, then insert a stiff metal tool like a straightened out heavy paper clip into the hole on the shaft of the lock by the circular flange next to the door. Push it in until you feel it give and pull out on the handle at the same time. If you need more help please contact me.
Best of Luck,

SOURCE: How to install kwikset door knob with lock

Are the holes in the door? Are you replacing the old lock? Need to know these things, or I will be typing a bunch of stuff you don't need. Most doors come pre-bored. If not, you need 2 bits, One is 2 1/8 inch cup bit, the forstner type is a lot more expensive, and a 1 inch paddle bit, again, the forstner bit is expensive. Measure up the door app 39 inches, unless there is a lock rail on/in the door, then measure to the center of that. Then on the inside of the door, measure back 2 3/8, most locksets now are adj for 2 3/8 or 2 3/4, you can use either one. You can drill either hole first, To drill your one inch hole in the edge of the door sighting along both sides of the door with your eyes crossed so you can make sure you are going straight, you don't want to bust through the side of the door. Then get the big bit out and drill from the mark till you just come through the other side, then back it out and drill from the other side so you don't tear out the hole. Your 1 inch hole should be all the way into the big hole.Then get you chisels, the sharp ones, put the plunger in the one inch hole, nice and straight, then mark the outside with a sharp pencil, cut the line with the chisel then cut out the waste about 1/8 to 3/16 deep, make sure it fits nice and tight, Predrill the two screw holes, or you will split the door.Get the lockset out, the key to the outside, and the button on the inside of what you are locking. Line up the holes, you might have to spin the button to get them to line up, then put in the 2 long screws. Mark the jamb with the striker, To get it right, put the striker on the door, hooked into the latch, mark the edge of the door with a pencil,then put the striker on the jamb, backwards, to the line you just marked, then out line it, use your 1 inch bit to hog out the middle nice and neat, cut the rest out the same way with the chisels, predrill the holes, you should be all set. OH the deadbolt? You didn't mention that, it goes the same way as the lockset, only the hole is smaller, 1 1/2, I think, you will have to check that. Now you know why people call carpenters.

SOURCE: 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.

How do i attach the door lever?


http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/content/BDHHI/24910-04

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.

Re-assemble a kwikset front door lever and knob type latch


Since the exterior side of the lock only has a keypad and no lever, I'm not sure what you mean by the "outside lever". Here is a clear, easy to follow video of the installation. Please carefully review each aspect of your installation against it to see if you can spot an installation mistake:

I have a kwikset lever door lock, is there a diagram or manual available for it which shows the inner mechanisim parts?


No. Throw it out and buy something else. Carbine, Lockwood, Brava, even Gainsborough is better than kwikset.

I recently purchased a kwikset jda-9760718-002


You can download them from kwikset here. Just choose your version of the lever, select Installation & Troubleshooting instructions from the search list, and scroll down to the .pdf document file listed in the next window.
But that lever is pretty standard, and there are also some kwikset installation directions here
You can use some pretty generic instructions if you just google "install lockset"., that may have some useful pointers.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!
