  • Commonwealth Keyed Entry Lever in Satin Nickel is rated 4.7692 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer service I built my house in 1998 and installed all Kwikset Commonwealth locks. I live on the Texas coast which is a harsh environment and, after about 5 years the finish on my locks started deteriorating. I knew the locks had a lifetime finish guarantee, but I waited another 12 years before contacting Kwikset customer service in 2015. I provided photos of the deteriorated locks and Kwikset sent me replacement locks with no hassle. This consisted of 7 double-keyed deadbolts, 7 keyed lever sets and 1 handleset for my front door. I had several small problems with the order, but Kwikset promptly handled these problems also.You can't beat that...........................

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended by my Locksmith Was searching for this product with the Lifetime Guarantee on the Brass because my locksmith recommended it due to the fact the lever set would be exposed to the weather without a storm door for protection, PLUS the fact the Kwikset was a lock that he could key to two other locks in my house while he could not do so with other brands. Actually, the door has not been installed at this point so can not submit a photo. ALSO - like the price as almost 50% LESS than could have purchased elsewhere and the shipping time was unbelievable especially since there was no shipping charge.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Handle This handle was a close match for handles already installed, which is why I bought it. The thing that really impressed me was the ability, with the Smart Key, to re-key the handle to my door key so I don't have to cary around an extra key. The only con is the instruction that come with the handle are not well laid out. I know how to install a handle so all really wanted to know as how to reverse the handle for my door. That instruction is buried in the install instructions, without a descriptive header.

  • I have double front entry doors.  I would like the 740 CHL LO3 SMT keyed entry lever for the left entry door, which also has a deadbolt.  Can I get a matching lever for the right entry door, such as the 720 CHL LO3, which is non-functional but decorative?

    I need to reverse the levers on the keyed levers as well as the closet levers and bathroom/bedroom levers for the commonwealth levers. Do I need a special tool to do that? Also, I didn't see in the installation instructions how to reverse the levers.

    Asked by: Tiffany41
    Hello Tiffany41,Kwikset levers are reversible to accommodate the door handing. To reverse the levers, first mount the unit and then loosen the set screws using a 3/32 hex wrench on the levers, then swap the inside handle and outside handle and retighten the set screws.Thank you,Kwikset Support

    Asked by: Jacob56

    I'm looking for a gate door knob for an apartment exterior door. It needs to be one-way keyed entry. Everything that I had looked at has a thumbturn lock on the back, and I'm looking for a knob that does not have any function on the back. Is this it?

    Asked by: MMI
    Hello MMI,Kwikset makes gate latches that have a deadbolt keyed side and a turn piece on the other this is the 598 series. And the gate latch with both sides requiring the key is the serise model 599.Kwikset does not make knobs or levers with the gate latch feature.Thank you,Kwikset Support

    Levers Inside and outside? 45 degree turn to open? Interior always unlocked?

    Asked by: pakailua
    Hello pakailua,Thank you for your interest in the Kwikset keyed entry lever. The Commonwealth keyed entry lever includes two levers for the interior and exterior side of the door. To open it is approximately a 45 degree turn. The interior will remain unlocked only if the turn button is unlocked. If the turn button is in the locked position the lever will not open the door from the inside.Thank you,Kwikset Support
