Kwikset Commonwealth 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.

I purchased seven of these locks and dead bolts for all our exterior doors. All I can say is that the quality and ease of installation was excellent. Could not be happier with these lock sets from Kwikset or direct door hardware. Having them keyed all the same is an outstanding service provided. Shipping was quick. Highly recommend buying from this website and will buy again when I am ready to do the interior doors on our remodel project.

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.

Questions and Answers

Question 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
Question 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)
