SOURCE: The Door Handle Will Not Unlock!

Remove both sides of the handle and you should be able to slide the lock mechanism so the door opens.

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,

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,

Im trying to tighten up the screws in my kwikset lever knob in my bathroom but I keep pushing in that little hole on the side and it still wont come off. Is it broken?


There is a setscrew in the hole. Insert a 3/32" hex wrench (Allen wrench) and turn to the left to loosen. The handle will pull off easily.

Will all kwikset keys unlock all kwikset locks?


I've heard of this problem happening. Whenever the key is changed, check it several times before locking the door. If you have keys duplicated, the duplicates must be very accurate or they might not work reliably. Difficult to know what causes this, unless someone is tampering with the lock, or resetting it improperly. Or could be defective cylinders - which would be disappointing. Pin-tumbler cylinders do not have this problem, it's something unique to Kwikset
Smartkey.

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.)

Hi,
The instructions they send are almost always generic and cover more than one subject.
If you insert the key and turn it all the way clockwise, you should be able to insert the tool tip they sent you into the hole on the shank part of the handle. Pull straight out and it should come off. Some times it takes several attempts to do.
Next turn key counter clockwise back to starting position and remove key. Dump lock out of handle, paying attention to orientation. Turn lock 180 degrees and reinsert back into handle. Put lock and handle back on to door and reinsert the key. Turn key clockwise and push.... remove key.

Hope this Helps,
