Exterior door stuck closed manually retract ****** remove knobs KWIKSET


You will probably need to replace the latch assembly. There is a small rivet that holds part of the latch together, and it also acts as a pivot point for a small piece that retracts the latch. If it gets bent, the latch won't retract fully, but you might be able to push it back and get the door open.

Latch doesn't retract when knob is turned.


Kwikset locks are cheap and not designed to be repaired. If it was working and now doesn't, it's time to replace it.

If it is new, then take it back to the store and ask them to look at it. If it's working the right way, they'll be able to show you what you did wrong (or if it's a feature, then allow you to get one without that feature if you don't like it.) If it's not working right, they can replace it.

If you absolutely must have the replacement lock work with your old keys, then any locksmith and many other places that sell locks can set up a new lock of the same brand to other keys.

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 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.

My door handle came apart and now I have the pieces and don't know how to put them back together. Kwikset, chelsea door handle.


I assume the latch mechanism is still intact... the piece on the edge of the door that locks inside the strike plate when the door is shut -- if that's the case the only thing left to do is align the two knobs, one on iether side of the door, making sure the shaft goes thru the latch mechanism properly (it only fits thru one way) and then sandwich it tightly to the door and tighten it together with a phillips head screwdriver... some kwikset locks require you to turn one of the knobs to get the bolt heads to seat properly.

I'm not familiar with the chelsea model but they are all very similar... if you have more than the 2 knobs with a long shaft on one then chances are the solution above does not apply... you probably will have a knob with shaft and then a flat plate with holes, a finished plate and a plain knob... in this case align the knob and shaft thru the latch mechanism, place the plate with holes on the other side of the door and twist it slightly so the bolt heads lock in and tighten the bolts to the plate... now snap the finished plate over that and push the knob over the exposed shaft that remains... you'll need a flat head screw driver to lock the knob on where a small spring loaded piece fits into a cutout on the handle...

that's about the best I can explain it.
