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

installing 740CHL L03, stalled at step 3---how do you remove the cover plate to put the screws in?
Hello altamont serf,Using a 3/32 hex wrench will remove the lever and lift the cover plate away from the mounting hardware. It is tightly fitted on and must use alot of force to pull it apart.Thank you,Kwikset Support

I'm looking for a set of Antique Brass, both handle and deadbolt with same key. Also need a door knock of same color. Thank you.
Hi Charlie,The Commonwealth lever (model 740CHL-5-SMT) is SmartKey compatible with another SmartKey deadbolt. This will allow you to quickly and easily rekey both the handle and deadbolt to the same key.For a matching deadbolt, we recommend the 780 Series Deadbolt with Smartkey (780 5 SMT).Unfortunately we do not carry door knocks.Thank you,Kwikset
