Kwikset 740H-S Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Entry Knobset Installed nine of these handsets between two houses over the last two days. I really like the clean appearance and comfortable feel of this handleset. Feel really good also about the security provided by this model as well. The interior side of this handleset has concealed screws and the inner handle can be tricky to install if the ring on the back of the interior handle is not fully seated against its stop. Only had one handleset that was not seated properly and a quick push with a flat bladed screwdriver bit corrected the problem. did an OUTSTANDING job of rekeying my locks at no charge - although the "Smart-key" feature is quite simple to perform if you desire to use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great I would definitely recommend this product to anyone. It was easy to install and it looks great. I would definitely recommend getting your locks from as well. We replaced 9 locks and all of them were keyed the same and we received 7 keys so we have plenty of extras. The best part was I ordered the locks on a Monday, used their free shipping on orders over $199 and the locks arrived on Wednesday. The only thing that is a little odd about this product is that the interior knob is slightly smaller than the exterior knob.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless I bought five of these and four have of the five are messed up. When the handle is locked it stil turns about 1/8 of a turn.You can feel it slip inside. Called the manufacturer and was told they were defective but that she had never heard of such a thing. Yea right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Door Knob! I replaced my brass door knobs with this matte black knob. It's bigger than most knobs and feels great in my hand. It was easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive finish, solid hardware. I bought several of these to replace existing brass knob sets. Because these ship with all of the hardware and give you options of rounded and squared corners on the latch plate it made installation easy. The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. The finish is very attractive and the hardware is solid. I would definitely purchase this set again. I had my entire order keyed-alike and was not disappointed. Everything matched and worked great. Product was packed well and shipped promptly. Great shopping experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent transaction Purchased 10 exterior locksets to replace 35 year old Quiksets. The new ones are very smooth to operate and the Smart key option is wonderful. The price was very fair and we received our order quickly.

  • How can we get all locks, including entry doors and deadbolts keyed alike? I am assuming that the smart key locks all come with different keys, so I am presuming that we would have to have duplicates made to match the one chosen, right?

    A. You can get all the keyed items keyed alike. You will need to select keyed alike for each keyed item. You will get two keys per key code. The smart keys will be able to be re keyed using the smart key tool, but if you choose keyed alike they will come already keyed to the same key code.
  • Is this set keyed from both sides?

    A. The 740H-S is keyed on one side only.
  • Can I change the key unlock from turning counter clockwise to clockwise?

    A. The Kwikset 740H-S thumb turn or keyway direction unfortunately cannot be switched around.
  • Do you have installation instructions available?

    A. The Kwikset 740H-S has installation instructions available on the product page.
  • What is the depth of the out side handle? I presently have a screen door which barely gives me enough room until the handle hits the screen door frame.

    A. The Kwikset 740H-S extend 2.75 inches from the door.
