Question about Kwikset Professional Door Lock installation Kit
Hello, I've lost the entry door key to a kwikset handleset/deadbolt. It is the older style that does not have smart key. How can I re key this lock to match an existing key? All the literature I've read state that I must have the original key in order to remove the cylinder. Please help.
Unfortunatley you need to have the key to remove the cylinder. You can take it to a locksmith that can pick" it to remove the cylinder and make you a key but it may be more cost effective to replace it.
Sorry not to be mre help.

From a pro-locksmith: First of all be grateful it is not a Smartkey lock from Kwikset. Take lock off the door and take it to your nearest locksmith. He can easily take it apart and make a key for it; or call a local locksmith. Avoid locksmiths using call centers, you will pay 2x more.
