Lost entry door key, need to rekey kwikset deadbolt

Hello, I've lost the entry door key to a kwikset handleset/deadbolt. It is the older style that does not have smart key. How can I re key this lock to match an existing key? All the literature I've read state that I must have the original key in order to remove the cylinder. Please help.

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.

From a pro-locksmith: First of all be grateful it is not a Smartkey lock from Kwikset. Take lock off the door and take it to your nearest locksmith. He can easily take it apart and make a key for it; or call a local locksmith. Avoid locksmiths using call centers, you will pay 2x more.

How do I rekey smartkey when original keys are lost?


the only way to fit a new key to the ' smartkey ' lock system is to use the Kwikset smartkey reset tool, then after the cylinder is reset - you can put a new key in it for alignment.
this tool is availible at most lockshops and they will reset the lock for about 5 dollars.

Tubular design deadbolt stuck in lock position. Door cannot open.


if you remove the screw from the deadbolt and remove the keyed parts you can see the plunger assembly. you can use a flat head screw driver and turn the plunger in. it will unlock the door and you will be able to replace the deadbolt

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 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!
