from A Great Lock I purchased 2 of these and installed on front and rear doors to my home. The installation was very easy and simple. As both my wife and I are in our 70's the doors are easier to open and close. I should have done this years ago. Sure beats having to turn a knob when your hands are full.

from It's ok I'm resetting the lock with the Allen wrench so I can lock the door or it will not lock. This happens usually every 1-2 months. When I'm in a hurry my house is unlocked because the lock needs to be tighten by the Allen wrench.

I installed on a right-hand door (hinges on the right from the inside) which orients the handle curve up (the opposite of the depicted handle). This places the twist upward & makes the handle uncomfortable to use. Is there a left handed version?
Hello offhandle,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 405BL-15-SMT. This unit reversible to accommodate the door handing. To reverse the levers, first mount the unit and then loosen the set screws on the levers, then swap the inside handle and outside handle and retighten the set screws.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team
