Customer Questions & Answers

How does the re keying work. Interested in using in a rental, will I have to purchase additional keys each time I re key?

Asked by: KWDIY
I'm a fan on Kwikset 'smart key' products... If you purchase the 'smart key' product offered by kwikset, all that's needed is a special insert to rekey locks and the key that you want the lock to work with. It's a very simple process. I've purchased a couple of these door knobs already and as other door knobs need replacing, I'm sure to get a knob or dead bolt with the 'smart key'. This way I can change the keys to my locks whenever I want.

how do i tighten this type of door knob? it is loose.

Asked by: Anonymous
You need to first pop away the cover plate that is up against the door. The cover plate will only be able to move about 1/8th of an inch. With it moved that little you should be able to see two tabs, one on the right with an arrow pointing down and one on the left with an arrow pointing up. You will need to take a flat head screwdriver and place it on the end of either of the tabs and move the tab in the direction the arrow is pointing. Once the tab has been moved all the way, you will want to remove the screwdriver and pull on the knob. The knob should now move away from the mounting plate and you should see the two Phillips head screws which hold the lock together.

Customer Reviews

Laurel Venetian Bronze Entry Knob Featuring SmartKey is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the look and feel of it. We wanted to get something more stylish that a plain round knob, and decided on the Laurel. The feel of it is solid and the shape fits your hand so much more naturally that I want to change out all the knobs in our house! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Date published: 2017-01-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oval shape is geat We didn't want a lever on this door, but also didn't want a round door knob as it was hard to get leverage to turn the knob of the original handle - I think the weather affected the functionality of the knob, getting blistering hot in the setting sun (door faces west) of the summer and freezing cold in the winter. Being oval, this doorknob allows us a solid grip on the handle to provide the leverage required to open the door.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Laurel Knob, Oval I replaced several Lido style lever doorknob handles with these oval knobs in order to mount plantation blinds onto the patio doors. These handles do not operate as smoothly as the other Kwikset signature handles I used throughout the house, but the oval shape gives better grip/leverage than the round handles. Would I buy again, probably not, but these handles are sufficient at this time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality and easy installation! Installation instructions were easy, especially using the smartkey function. Looks beautiful and operates flawlessly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice feel Adds a nice feel to my new home I did same series inside but was disappointed kwikset didn't offer the door plates they do for their other locks to make them a little more classy. For a couple hundred bucks more I could have got adifferent brand that had classier plates but wasn't in my budget. The egg knob feels good but not noticeable with the round door plate until you grab hold of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I was replacing an existing knob with one that locks, and the install literally took like 2 minutes. The smart key feature is also great as you can quickly re-key the knob without needing a locksmith.
Date published: 2015-01-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would Not Recommend Purchased this entry knob and the 907 Powerbolt Series keyless entry. Knob assembly completly broke in 1/2 less than 60 days after install. Front and rear of this lock is held together by a flimsy set key. It will break with normal usage. Also, the keyless entry is malfunctioning, the bolt will not fully retract. Giving that product a poor review also. Door knobs/locks should last more than 60 days!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product with a nice look This handle is a solid piece of hardware that works well and looks great. The installation is a snap and the smart key technology really is as simple and functional as it is hyped to be. I rekeyed my lock in about 30 seconds, following the instructions provided.
