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.

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

SOURCE: the key for my kwikset door handle lock won't

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.

SOURCE: I have installed a new

You need to take it back off Pull the knobs removing the shaft from the plunger. put the knob with the shaft back in and turn the knob to see it turn in the plunger. sure the doors going to close if it's locked but not being able to turn the knob will not pull the plunger back the lock just stoppes the knob from turning. The knob that has the shaft in it has the two rods that the screws go into these rods go thouhg the holes for them in the plunger not over and under the plunger as you may have done which will cause this problem. You may have the offset set wrong for your door and the holes don't line up. with the shaft out the punger can be set to short and long as needed and if you drilled the door yourself and didn't get it right it won't line up on either setting.

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.

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.

How to install single cylinder handleset with lido lever

I'm not sure whether you need instructions for an entry door or an internal bedroom or closet door. So let me steer you to the online site:
Go to :

Then "Browse by function" for the appropriate type, then choose the Lido
On the next page, you can click on any Lido finish, the instructions will be the same regardless of finish.
Once you 're on the next page, under the red "Technical Documents" heading, choose "Installation Guide".
It will take a moment to download the PDF file of the installation instructions for you to follow.
A note about PDF files: If you cannot view a given file, you need to first install Adobe Reader. You can get the free download here:

Good luck!

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!
