Need to disassemble deadbolt with concealed screws

I have a Kwikset model 800 shelburne deadbolt which I am trying to disassemble.The inside deadbolt lock does not show the screws as they areconcealed. Also, close to where the bolt is attached to the door panel,I noticed a very tiny hole possibly for a pin to be inserted which willsomehow enable the concealing panel to be removed and screws will berevealed but I cannot figure it out. I inserted a thin long nail inthis hole and tried to wiggle the deadbolt but it won't come out orbecome loose. I do not have a manual for it so I don't know how todisassemble this type of lock. Can you help me figure out how can Iremove the inside bolt so that the lock can be disassembled?
Thank you
-Al

If it's like my deadbolt, pull the inside faceplate off. It's just pressed in place and the screws are behind it.

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 kwikset #991LL


Remove inside lever by loosening the setscrew and pulling. Carefully pry off the inside cover. Make sure both screws are tight. Replace inside lever. With door unlocked, the outside lever can be removed in the same way as the inside. All that is necessary though is to be sure the setscrew on the outer lever is tight. Check to be sure the lock is tight and operating correctly before closing the door and locking it.

The deadbolt inside turnbutton is held on with a small setscrew. Remove it and the inside cover. Be sure the screws under the cover are tight. Check the lock operation, replace cover and turnbutton.

Her is the link to the installation guide for your lockset, which you can cut and paste into your Browser. It is a PDF file, which requires that your have a PDF reader like Adobe Reader installed on your computer:

on the inside of the door look on the bottom of the lock cover. There should be a hole with a screw or allen head screw. Remove the screw and you can access the the rest of the lock.

I have a kwikset deadbolt model 898 keyless entry.i need to change pin number on keypad outside


I had the same question as my son installed the lock. Instructions should be printed on the cover you remove (inside the house). They need to make removing that cover MUCH easier, I'm always afraid I'll break it. Anyway, you press the button once for the first number. To enter a "guest" code, press the button twice then enter the 2nd code in the keypad and press the lock button. Now try both main # and guest #, both should open ttthe lock.

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.

Kwikset deadbolt


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.
