Asked by CMS March 30, 2021

Answer

This model will not remain locked at all times unless it's locked with the push button or the key. For our Storeroom locks, please see the Carson Storeroom lever, model # 39CNL 15, and the Burbank Storeroom lever, model # 439BBL 15.

Answer

For the Kingston keyed entry lever, the exterior lever does not push down when in the locked position, and the interior is a "free interior," where you can push down the lever on the interior side to unlock. For a Kwikset Storeroom lock, which remains locked on the exterior always, unless unlocked with a key, please see model # 439CNL 15.

Yes, this has a Smart Key feature so it is easy to re-key by yourself. The door level has a key lock in it. If you want a separate dead bolt, they sell those separately.

The selling feature to me was the SmartKey Security feature. I didn't want to buy an entry door lever lock then have to arrange for a locksmith to rekey it. Be aware that this lockset is "light duty" as opposed to the more secure "heavy duty" locksets offered by other manufacturers. And, even though this lockset is for an entry door, it doesn't incorporate any features to seal out dust or weather from getting into its internal mechanism. But, it is very inexpensive, and I can replace it at least four or five times vs. buying a better lockset plus having to hire a locksmith.

I have installed 6 of these around the building and 2 of them have had issues within the first 6 months of the lock disengaging when you turn the lever to open the door. If you lock the lever from the inside button, you can confirm that it is locked from the inside but when you go to the try the outside lever, the lock disengages. However if you use the key to lock the lever from the outside (instead of pushing the interior lock button), the lever remains locked as it is supposed to. This has led to several times when I thought the door was locked but was easily opened just by using the exterior lever. I don't know if two of the 6 purchases were defective or not. I have not had the same issue with the rest of them.
