  • Commonwealth Keyed Entry Lever in Iron Black is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
    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...........................

    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

    How do I remove the lever to remove the smart lock 

    Asked by: Jesse M

    So that was great on reversing the handle set.  But key is still upside down.  How do I rotate the cylinder so the teeth of the key are up?

    Asked by: bob012
    Hello Bob12,Remove the lever off of the shaft. You will see a silver clip around the housing. Remove the silver clip, at this point the cylinder should slide out and have the ability to turn around.Thank you,Kwikset Support

    With the Signature Series, how do I switch the key chamber around so that the key entry is no longer upside down?  Thansk.

    Asked by: Jake65
    Hello Jake65,Kwikset door handles are reversible; there are no left or right handles. If when installed the key goes in upside down on this model you can loosen the set screw that holds the outside handle on. Take the handle off, pull the silver C clip that holds the key cylinder in. Pull the cylinder out, turn it over and reinstall everything. If you need further assistance please call Kwikset at 800-327-5625.Thank you,Kwikset Support
