A well-made handle, but check the dimensions if they are important to you.
I ended up needing a replacement for this handle, as it appears Kwikset have updated their Signature series and the handles now have different dimensions than they used to have (the old dimensions were still listed on this site when I last checked). The new dimensions can be found on Kwikset's site. I would include a link to the new dimensions, but site links aren't permitted in reviews on this site. Apart from that, these are really nicely made levers with good quality latch mechanisms. Highly recommended.

Kwikset CommonWealth Lever Antique Nickel
This hardware is surprisingly well made given the price. The quality of the finish is high. Kwikset has a good design and robust internal springs and components. I installed about $750 worth of locks doing my entire house and I am not sorry I spent the money. Big difference in both security and functionality. I would choose over other residential grade such as Weiser, Slage, and Ruswin.

Great Product
High quality handles with easy installation. Install instructions should make reference to left vs. right hinge install method to avoid customer service calls. But customer service answered promptly and the person on the phone spoke english and actually knew what he was talking about.

Q: What does Entrance with Smart Key mean? I am replacing a broken identical door knob with this one. I'd like the new doorknob to be able to match the key I am now using. Is this what Smart Key means?
Asked by: Jill Potter - 7/9/2015
A: The Smartkey cylinder allows you to key the new lock alike your existing locks. So yes, if you would like to be able to have the new lock match what you have already, order the smartkey. Keep in mind though that your existing key must be a kwikset type keyway. Answer provided by:  Jake (7/10/2015)
Q: can tho kwikset lidoprivacy lock come with a polished brass outside and a polished chrome interior so that it match bathroom accessories?
Asked by: mary - 8/8/2015
A: You can special order it that way from the factory. The leadtime is 4-6 weeks. Otherwise, people often buy one of each finish and mix parts. Please give us a call if you want to special order it split finish. Answer provided by:  DDH Staff (8/10/2015)
