Kwikset door knobs are available in several functions. Please review the descriptions below so you can order the correct door knob for your application.

Passage Door Knob Function Passage or Hall and Closet Doorknobs are used on doors that do not require a locking mechanism. Halls, closets, pantry or laundry doors will generally use a passage knobset. Passage knobs do not have a locking mechanism.

Privacy Door Knob Function Privacy or Bed and Bath Door Knobs 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 knobs 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 knobs will have a pin hole inside a circular piece, some just have a small pinhole.

Keyed Entrance Door Knob Function Keyed Entrance Door Knobs are generally used on exterior doors, but sometimes used on interior doors where security is a concern. Kwikset keyed entrance knobs 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 Door Knob Function Single Dummy Doorknobs are sold individually. Dummy knobs do not have a latch or mechanism of any kind. These knobs are surface mounted to a door that has not been bored (large hole cut out) for a doorknob. Dummy knobs 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.

I needed to have knobs with a 5" backset. Choices are very limited for this older/obsolete style. The Kwickset knobs had a substandard finish and were not as good a quality of construction and materials when compared to other brands such as Weiser or Schlage etc. They were easy to install and work well.

Thank Goodness for Direct Door Hardware
I looked all over town and all over the internet for a 5 inch backset. Thang goodness for this website. It arrived quickly and went on easily. I thought I was going to have to get a new door, but luckily I was able to just get a new knob.

Great selection, great service
I found this site after finding that I was unable to buy the Hancock style knobs in any retail store-- my whole house has them and my kids had broken one. It was easy to find, cost is good, and was on my doorstep a few days later.

Great hardware from a great company.
Replaced old knobs and deadbolts with these. Easy installation. They look great and are much stronger than the old ones. When ordering I was confused about the Kwikset SmartKey feature and ordered the wrong knobs. Direct door hardware sent me the ones I wanted at no charge. Great company. Highly recommended.

Question Is it a set one for the inside and outside of the door or do you need to buy two to complete the door?
Asked by: B - 10/31/2015
Question If you order the single dummy function it will be a single knob surface mounted without a latch. The others are sets with knobs for both sides of the door, latch, strike and mounting hardware. Answer provided by:  Jake (11/2/2015)
Question I have a space for a deadbolt. Is there one for that matches this knob, or is there a circle plate available to cover the hole?
