Kwikset 740H Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased these knobs, the matching deadbolts and interior knobs. All are great quality, look fantastic in my home (rustic/farmhouse). A piece of advice on the keyed alike option (something I wasn't clear on). I ordered both the keyed entry knobs and deadbolts on the same order and selected the keyed alike option, expecting both the deadbolts and keyed entry knobs to all be keyed the same. However, all the deadbolts are one type of key (these were keyed alike) and the entry knobs a different key (again, keyed alike). I mistakenly thought all would be one key. So, if this is your intention, be sure to contact customer service to specify this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service Response time by was excellent! I expected to wait a couple weeks before I received the product but it only took a few days. It was easy to install and it matches the rest of my doorknobs quite well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice handle set but careful installing These handles are nice looking and functional, but the installation is a bit different from any other handset I've installed. The inside handle is held in place not by screw, but by a clasp between the bolt and the inside handle. If installation is easy, but if the handle is a little bit askew when you twist it to engage the clasp, the brass inside clasp can bend and the knob set is ruined. I had four to installed and this happened to two (I was able to recover one, but had to purchase another handle set for the other). In my opinion, it is better to avoid this design flaw and go with a set that screws the inside knob in place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match! Our home is only 5yrs old and when one of the door knobs started having problems I thought it would be easy to find a replacement. Not so. None of the hardware stores carries this particular style in our area. So when I found it on line I was a bit aprenhesive. But as it turned out it was a perfect match. It was coded to match our existing keys... once again a perfect match. Installation was easy of course because it was a direct replacement. Excellent service. Couldn't be more pleased.

  • I need a door knob like this for an interior door 1 3/8" thick.

    A. This can be used on an interior door. It does work with a 1 3/8" thick door. This version does have the keyed lock. You can see the whole Hancock collection here:

  • Is the smartkey system safe? It seems that anyone with a smartket tool could re-key the lock.

    A. Yes the SmartKey system is safe. The tool works only with a working key. To change the lock, you would need a functional key and the SmartKey.

  • Is this lock keyed on both sides?

    A. The Kwikset 740H is keyed on one side only.

  • How do you order for square or round faceplates?


    The Kwikset 740H comes with standard round corner strike plate (part #83796). For Square Corner Strike Plate See Product: Kwikset 83437. For a T-Strike Plate See: Kwikset 83028.

  • Does the 740H come with a square face plate or a round faceplate?


    The Kwikset 740H comes with a round rosette.
