Remove the two screws on the inside side. It should pull apart maybe with a little wingling. The new one will install the same way the old one came out. To reinstall(with one hand) it would be easier if you can somehow hold the one side while you put the other side on like hold it with tape or up agaist something and up agaist the wall. Hope it goes well. Need any more info let me know.

How do you remove brass exterior lock and decorative plate. There are no visible screws.


It depends on brand.
Some have a removable scalp (face plate), that will easily pry off.
Then the screws will be exposed.
Others may have a small round piece of spring steel wrapped around
the inner area?

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.

Need a video how to program my keyless entry deadbolt lock


Which manufacturer made the keyless deadbolt lock? Make sure that the batteries are good in the unit.

I have an older Weiser Powerbolt deadbolt lock that is programmed by taking off the cover on the inside of the door. This model has handheld remotes and the keypad. Inside there are three yellow buttons. Two match the cover's lock and unlock buttons. Press and hold the third button (in the center of the set of buttons). Then enter program in the code within a few seconds and press the enter button to set the code. If the unit beeps again, the code is set. If the unit doesn't beep, retry from the press and hold the Program button step.

Another model of the Weiser Powerbolt lock has the Program button either on the top left or lower right hand side of the board (depending on the way the door opens) under the cover. Press the Program button once and then enter the 4-8 digit code. Press the Lock button to set the code. If you hear a long beep, the code was accepted; otherwise try to program your code again.

Kwikset Powerbolt locks are programmed the same way as the second Weiser Powerbolt described above.

Kwikset SmartCode locks have their Program button in the center of the bottom of the control board. Otherwise the programming is the same as that given above for the second version of Weiser Powerbolt locks.

MiLocks have three buttons in a horizontal line. The left-most button is the Set button. Press this then enter the code followed by the Unlock button. The code must be entered within 5 seconds of pressing set.

Baldwin Hardware's Boulder series of keyless entry deadbolts are programmed just like the Kwikset SmartCode units.

I don't know of any videos. Most manufacturers do have PDF files with the programming instructions.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your deadbolt for extra assistance.

(I end up replacing the batteries often on the lock I have; it seems like they last 6 months or less.)

Kwikset smartcode deadbolt newly installed unlocks when lock button pushed. I have taken batteries out and reset few times with no success.


"I have installed your Powerbolt, but when I push the Lock Button, it unlocks? What should I do?"
First remove the cover on the inside of the Powerbolt unit. On the right hand side under the batteries, you will notice that is says "Door Direction Jumper". If the cap is mounted on Prongs 1 & 2, carefully remove it and move it over so that it mounts Prongs 2 & 3. A is right handed, B is left handed.
These instructions will work just fine for you:

Notice that the above is a .PDF file type. That means that you need to have Adobe Reader or similar installed on your computer to view it. So if you are unable to view the file, download (for free) and install Adobe Reader first. You can get it here:

These locks are made to work on a door which, when you stand outside and face it, has its hinges on either the left-hand or right-hand side of the door (= door "handedness").
The jumper controls that for the appropriate installation. Yours is set wrong!

My Kwikset Electronic Deadbolt is working in reverse. When I push the lock button it retracts the deadbolt. When I put in the access code it extends the deadbolt. What is wrong?


My lock did not have jumpers, but adjusts itself automatically... You have to hold the lock button in (on the exterior side) while you insert the battery pack - the deadbolt will cycle in and out, then beep a couple times. You'll be holding button for maybe 10 seconds.
I have to say while this step is included in the instructions in a big red box, it says nothing about why or what its doing, so I imagine many people miss this...

Exterior key for deadbolt just turns around and around.


It sounds like the exterior tumbler is bad, it is less expensive to just replace the whole deadbolt than to have the tumbler repaired.

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.
