2 Questions from the Community

  • For the Kwikset 740L-S you will use a key to lock/unlock on the outside and the turn knob to lock/unlock from the inside.

    I am uncertain of what type of a locking mechanism is used for the inside of the door.

    A. For the Kwikset 740L-S you will use a key to lock/unlock on the outside and the turn knob to lock/unlock from the inside.

  • The Kwikset 740L-S does not come with a keyed interior. They would have a thumb turn on the inside.

    Does Kwikset make a knob set that does not have a turn knob on the inside knob and as if so, does it have Smart Key system?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Laurel Keyed Entry Door Knob This door knob (polished chrome) is very decorative, but not overly so. It fit in with our other's in the house quite nicely and was easy to install. My only suggestion when dealing with this company is to make sure you specify which way the door is hung (left or right). This was not specified on the order sheet. When I answered their inquiry on purchase feedback, they immediately responded to my complaint and provided an instant solution (key direction easily switched on Laurel knobs) which was on the manufacturer's internet website. We'll definitely buy from this company again, if their price is close to the lowest.
