from Not good for outside exposure to sun I purchased and installed several of these entry lever locksets on all the exterior doors of my new home. They are about 9 years old and the ones that are exposed to the sun the most are losing their protective clearcoat finish as it is turning yellow and peeling off and they look awful. We are a family of TWO people, so that is limited use on any of our doors. Of the doors that we use the most, their handles are starting to 'sag' if that's possible, but the handles are sitting lower than they were when first installed and the hardware is not loose. I'm not happy with the quality of this hardware and its performance. I would not purchase this model again and might not purchase Kwikset brand again.

from Poor Quality... Big Disappointment. I had to replace all exterior handlesets due to deterioration of the finish. Submitted a warranty claim, which Kwikset honored. When replacements arrived, there was an obvious difference in quality. The handles were narrower, the mechanism was obviously less substantial than the handles sets replaced. Smart key feature is ingenious, but lock cylinder is too loose feeling... Tolerances too great... Easily infiltrated.

from Tarnished when exposed to elements. Warranty +++. I outfitted our house with these locks in 2002. They've lasted all this time. We did have some tarnish issues with about four or five of them that were exposed to the elements and a mechanical issue with one. I took pictures and emailed them to the warranty department and they were replaced.

from Couldn't expect anything more! I have these Pembroke lever handles throughout my home and have owned them product for approximately 10 to 12 years. The product has served its purpose and has lasted the test of time in terms of style and design.I did however have an issue with this product on two main doors, my garage entrance and my patio french doors. I'll admit, both of which see the most traffic in my home.The levers, when pushed down to open wouldn't spring back up, they remained "limp", making them difficult and very frustrating to operate. Also, the levers on the exterior of the patio doors which of course are exposed to the elements lost their finish at first, discoloured then began to peel off.At this point I decided to give Kwikset a call. Fortunately for me, I learned that Kwikset offers a lifetime warranty on its products. That was a big relief for me as my family lives on a pretty tight budget. Kwikset was able to send me out replacements for the defective items (I was on the hook for the shipping costs which were very reasonable). I am pretty handy and was able to change them out myself.If I was in the market for door hardware I would definitely consider purchasing Kwikset.

from Stop Working We bought 4 sets, of handle entry locks and deadbolts, for the 4 exterior door. At the time the reason was that they can programmed to us the same key by the owner without going to a locksmith. We have had trouble with all of the all of the handle lever locks, but so far no trouble with the deadbolts.

I really did lose my set screw when I took it to Home Depot and it was dropped. The ones they gave me don't work. Naturally, previous posts fixed the original problem on my exterior door but, now need the missing screw on the interior. What is the part #?

how do I change the direction of the key cylinder in my 740 PML SMT
Hello jbleecker11,Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 740PML-11P-SMT. To turn the cylinder around, remove the lever using a 3/32 allen wrench. Remove the silver clip around the shaft of the cylinder. Remove the cylinder and rotate the cylinder. Reverse the process to put the lever back on to the shaft.Thank you,Kwikset Support Team

The outside handle fell off. It seems as though the set screw fell out. What size set screw is needed to reattach the handle?
Hello Sue 72,The lever has a hidden set screw. Looking at the shaft that the lever fits on, you will notice on one side there is a hole and directly opposite on the other side of the shaft there is a silver button, that silver button is the set screw.Place the lever back on to the shaft and using a 3/32 hex wrench tighten the set screw through the lever and through the shaft.Thank you,Kwikset Support
