  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Quality and Durability I reworked all of the interior and exterior locksets in my home and my in-laws home three years ago, replacing the old tired missed matched knob units with the Kwikset Commonwealth units finished in polished brass. They were easy to install, and fit in the standard doors without difficulty. Three years later, these units work and look like I just installed them. I highly recommend you consider these units for your home upgrade projects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product plus EXCELLENT customer service. Bought this to match a new 985 double cylinder deadbolt. The finish match is identical in Antique Brass and the quality is very high. EXCELLENT customer service direct from Kwikset toll-free on Saturday to learn how to reverse the handle, which wasn't specific in the instructions. Easy install after that. Keyed alike with the 985 deadbolt. SmartKey option is great to have should I need to change keys in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going thru doors so easy with hands full I love these, especially when my hands are full, no matter what I have in my hands I can get the door open easy. Your company has been so good to work with, I have had your products for over 40 years and you have always supported your warrantees as advertised very quickly. I could not be happier with your product or your service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the lever About a dozen years ago when we had the house built, we chose the Commonwealth levers for all doors (about 20 interior and 6 keyed-alike exterior). As time went on, I've finished out the basement and that meant another 7 interior handles, all, of course, were the Kwikset Commonwealth levers. We like the convenience of a lever when opening a door with your hands full and being able to use the same key on all of them, especially since a couple have had to be replaced due to constant use (we have a busy household) and re-keying the new locks was a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought all kwikset levers locks for my house and had some problems with a lock and when I called the company was told to send a picture of the lock. After sending the picture I was told that they were going to replace all of my locks due to discoloration and that the warrenty was for life.Money well spent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made. Supported excellently. I live at 9000 feet altitude, in the Colorado Rockies where the sun is intense. The function of these exterior handsets has been excellent. The finish stood up for about 15 years on the door handle that is in direct sunlight for most of the day. Once it started to show signs of deterioration, Kwikset replaced it quickly and happily. I am very impressed with the ease of the replacement and the Smart Key function.

     The screws inside my handle wiggled loose and I cannot remember how we installed it.  I need to know how to remove the door handle so I can re-tighten the screws inside .

    Asked by: Jeri
    Hello Jeri, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 740CHL-26D-SMT. To tighten the screws in the unit, using a 3/32 alen wrench loosen the interior lever set screw located on the side of the lever. Once the screw is loosened the lever will slide of the shaft. Then lift the plate away from the door and you will then expose two phillips screws to tighten on the door. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    The lock cylinder is upside down. How do I change this

    Asked by: JAF
    Hello JAF, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 740CHL-11P-SMT. To turn the cylinder around, using a 3/32 hex wrench, loosen the set screw on the exterior lever. Remove the lever off the shaft, there will be a silver clip at the end of the shaft. Remove the clip and the cylinder will come out of the shaft, turn the cylinder around and reverse the process to put the lever back on. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team

    Hi thanks for your reply about switching inside/outside. But will your directions then keep the keyhole outside & lock knob inside? If we flip them? Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 740CHL-5-SMT. Please install the unit as is out of the box.

    Asked by: Lynn345
    Hello Lynn345, Thank you for your interest in Kwikset model # 740CHL-5-SMT. When you install the unit on the door out of the box, you will install it with the keyed portion on the exterior and the turn piece on the interior. And you will only switch just the levers on the door. Sincerely, Kwikset Support Team
