How do I remove the lever to remove the smart lock
Hello Jesse M,To remove the lever you will need a 3/32 hex wrench. Loosen the set screw on the interior side lever. Once the set screw is loosened you can remove the lever, then the plate. There will be two visible screws under the plate that will allow, to uninstall the unit.Thank you,Kwikset Support

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?
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.
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
