Kwikset Tustin lever handles are available in several functions. Please review the descriptions below so you can order the correct Lever Handle for your application.

Passage Lever Handle Function Passage or Hall and Closet Doorlevers are used on doors that do not require a locking mechanism. Halls, closets, pantry or laundry doors will generally use a passage leverset. Passage levers do not have a locking mechanism.

Privacy Lever Handle Function Privacy or Bed and Bath lever handles are most often used on Bedrooms, Baths or Office doors where a lock for privacy while occupied is desired, but a keyed lock is not really necessary. Kwikset privacy levers have a turn button on the end of the knob as shown to the left to activate the lock. On the outside, there is a pin hole for emergency unlocking. Some levers will have a pin hole inside a circular piece, some just have a small pinhole.

Keyed Entrance Lever Handle Function Keyed Entrance lever handles are generally used on exterior doors, but sometimes used on interior doors where security is a concern. Kwikset keyed entrance levers have a push pin lock on the inside backplate, similar to a privacy lock. On the outside there is a keyed cylinder. If the knob is locked from the inside a key is required for entrance. If you are ordering several keyed locks of the same brand we can key them alike for you.

Single Dummy Lever Handle Function Single Dummy Doorlevers are sold individually. Dummy levers do not have a latch or mechanism of any kind. These levers are surface mounted to a door that has not been bored (large hole cut out) for a doorknob. Dummy levers are generally used on double doors that us a ball catch at the top to keep them closed so a latch is not required. They are also commonly found on the inactive side of a french door - a single dummy monted on either side of the inactive door.

Balboa Lever
The order came on time. All of the parts were there. Looked just like it should. When the backset didn't operate properly, they immediately sent me new one. I would buy from them again, and recommend them to others

Questions and Answers

Question I need round strike plates. Do the Kwickset balboa come with those?
Asked by: Mary - 3/28/2017
Question Kwikset does not come with round strike plates. Those have not been popular for quite some time. These will have a standard full lip strike. You can purchase round strike plates individually here:

Question Is this a universal fit?
Asked by: DMC - 4/20/2017
Question These are designed to fit doors with standard door preparation of 2 1/8" bore hole and 1" cross bore. So I wouldn't say they are universal as not all doors are prepped that way, but that is the most common door prep.

Question Can this balboa quickset door handle be used for a door to outside?
Asked by: Kathy - 6/8/2018
Question Sure! Usually people use the keyed entry function on exterior doors. But you could use a passage with a deadbolt if you like. Answer provided by:  Jake (6/8/2018)
Question For the privacy or keyed options, do I need to specify L or R handed, or are they reversible?
Asked by: Lake Drive - 3/28/2020
Question This one is reversible in all functions except single dummy Answer provided by:  Josh (3/30/2020)
Question Are the mounting screws in line with the handle or perpendicular to the handle?
Asked by: Dan - 1/15/2024
Question mounting screws are on either side of the lever base. So horizontal, not vertical on the rosette. Answer provided by:  Jake (1/16/2024)
