from Beautiful design We have had this item on our home for 12 years. Twice we have had failure where the thumb latch fails and takes a bit of force to open the door. Kwikset has replaced the handle both times with excellent customer service!! I will always buy kwikset just because they stand behind their product!!!

from Looks great for a few years Our house faces north so not can't really blame the sun. But after 5 years, the handle set started to change colors. Luckily there is a lifetime warranty on the finish and we were sent another set. Hopefully it will last much longer.

from brass finish is out of style This was a decent lockset/handleset. Kwikset honored the warranty and sent new parts when it broke.

from Superb Product for Harsh Climate & GREAT Support! A Kwikset handleset similar to this one in an antique brass came with our Florida house in 2009. The front door faces south, and the handleset succumbed to sun and hard, frequent rains, and it developed unattractive spots by 2013. I called the company who originally installed the door & handleset, and they looked at it and said an antique nickel finish would wear much better than brass under poor weather conditions. They said Kwikset continously improves their products and warranties them for life, and would replace a weather-damaged handleset for free if I paid postage.I sent Kwikset a photo of the damaged handleset with my iPhone, paid a few bucks for postage, and within days had received a brand-new antique nickel Chelsea handleset - the closest match available to my 2009 model - with a single-use tool to key it to match my existing housekey, all without charge! It's now two years later, and the handleset is beautiful, still looks like it's brand new despite the constant Florida sun and rain, and still operates perfectly (and we use it a lot).I had never expected Kwikset to so quickly and easily honor a lifetime warranty, but it did! 'Kwikset has the best support ever, and makes a REALLY great handleset for a harsh climate like our Florida one! Kwikset has my highest recommendation.

from Beautiful handleset This handleset looks really nice on my front door. I purchased it in venetian bronze. Works great, no problems with installation. Only thing I don't like is the lever on the inside of the deadbolt is 'up and down' or vertical when locked while all my other Kwikset deadbolts are horizontal when locked so I always have to think about whether that one's locked or not. May have been a way to change that but didn't try, didn't want to risk scratching up front door by taking it off and putting it back on again.

from Wrong parts....TWICE!!! The deadbolt did not contain the proper slide. The slide should have come with a plate attached ( shown in the directions that came with it). Instead the package contained a slide w/o a plate attached, and TWO packages with plates that were seperate. The problem is that neither set of plates fits the deadbolt slide. They were both for a pasage enrty slide, and thus too small to fit the deadbolt. I went to the trouble of sending the 1st back, and the 2nd came in just like the first. What a pain!!!!!

Will the Chelsea handleset work on a 1-3/8" thick door? There seems to be a while interior plastic that prevents it.

Can the Kevo be used with this handle set?

I purchased this handle to use with an existing interior handleset. The screws with the existing handles are too small in diameter and too short. In the instructions it shows the correct screw identified in Sec 9 as P2. Where can I purchase these?
Hello AZDan,If the existing set was a knob to knob or a lever to lever, this will not be compatible. You will need to purchase the interior model #966 with the desired knob or lever and finish to be compatible with this handle.Thank you,Kwikset Support

I would like to see what the inside configuration looks like.
Hello Paul m,This model is for the exterior only. The interior is sold separately with the desired knob or lever and finish. Any Kwikset knob or lever is compatible with this handle set. The deadbolt has a turn piece to lock and unlock the door.Thank you,Kwikset Support

I just purchased a house and the front entry deadbolt seemed to be replaced with a regular shaped one instead of that one as pictured. Can I just order a new deadbolt just like the one pictured instead of buying the whole set?
Hello Kin,Kwikset handle sets with decorative rose plates for the deadbolt are not sold separately.Thank you,Kwikset Support

Hi, We recently purchased a home with this front door handle set, and discovered that the thumb lever latch piece has detached from the locking mechanism. If you lightly pull on the lever it comes right off. Is there a replacement piece I can order?
