FAQs Kwikset Smart Key Lock

Which door size does this fit Kwikset Smart Key Lock?

It will fit a typical outdoor door that can be 30 inches wide “80” high and 36″ tall. The latch bolt has two common setbacks, and this one is compatible with applications with either a 2 3/8″ or 2 3/4″ backset. Outside doors are typically 1-3/4 in “Alternatively, the door might be made of a thinner material and still function.

What number of doors can this kit fit?

Each door, one set (four pieces). Within the door are bottom and top locks, and outside are bottom and top locks.

Will a door that is 1 1/2′ thick fit Kwikset Smart Key Lock?

Yes. Door: 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 in. The two long screws can complete the task.

Does the strike plate come with it as well?

Yes, the striking plate is included.

Does anyone know the distinction between these locks’ 

The Kwikset lock’s basic design is called Tylo. Juno has a more rounded shape.

Does this include the inner pack as well or is this just the external pack?

It has a deadbolt lock and inside knob that match.

Is Kwikset Smart Key Lock installing this simple?

This is fairly simple to install if the new door has pre-drilled holes or if you are switching out an existing lock set. There are a tonne of YouTube videos that demonstrate installation as well.

Should the $30 set include one door lock or two?

Absolutely, at that cost. Two-piece door sets are required. It’s wonderful that you can switch out the key for a new key without going to a key store for new ones because I found it to be really helpful when they could use the same key for both.
