Sounds like its binding. Loosen the screws that hold the 2 halfs together. Get the key to work smothly. snug the screws and try again. If ok then tighten the rest of the way.

No key for a schlage dead bolt i like to rekay


If you don't know how to open a lock cylinder in your hand, you probably should take it to a professional locksmith. They don't charge much to rekey a lock that you bring into the shop, and they can usually do it in under ten minutes. Twelve minutes if you don't bring a key that can open it.

That said, you can open it by shimming with a key blank and a shim, bumping with a bump key, removing the slide or top of the cylinder, picking with a pick, pick gun, or electric pick, key picking it, using tryout keys, rapping it open with a hammer handle, or simply wiggling every old key you can find in it until it either turns or you run out of old keys.

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.)

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.

I have Kwickset door knobs on my outside doors. I


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,

I bought 2 kwikset deadbolts.The first one worked out fine.The second one I turn the original key by accident.Now neither key will work.Is there a way to rekey my original key.


put the 'dummy key' that came in with it, turn it a 1/4 turn right, put smart key in, pull out smart key. pull out the key and insert the key that you would have as a desired key and turn left 1/4. thats it!!!!!!

Lost entry door key, need to rekey kwikset deadbolt


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.

I cannot remove the door lock to replace it.  It is a screwless type but i dont know the brand


generally, you remove the faceplate on the thin side of the door... there should be 2 screws there... then you'll see 2 holes on another faceplate underneath that one, which require an allen key of the right size... if your lucky you'll see a flathead bolt that can be loosened... then put your key only partially into the deadbolt and turn it counterclockwise and it will come out into your hand... then replace it or rekey it.

Kwikset powerbolt 1000 keyless entry deadbolt lock with keypad


Make sure that the bolt hole on the jamb side is recessed enough so the bolt gets a full extension. Without this externsion the bolt will not engage the key release. So when you do your quarter turn you are actually turning more. Remove the strike plate and drill the hole deeper until the bolt can extend all the way. Also double check your key to make sure it is not spurred or worn.

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!
