Residential Lock Help
Kwikset locksets provide automatic adjustment to door thickness within the ranges specified for each product.
Most standard doors have a thickness of 1-3/8” to 1-3/4”, however, it is necessary to measure this dimension to determine what your needs are for your door hardware.
Please refer to the technical specifications of each of our products to make sure your door and the door hardware you choose is compatible.
The backset is the measurement between the edge of the door to the center of the hole drilled for the lock.
Kwikset provides many types of latches, some of which are adjustable from 2-3/8” to 2-3/4”.
To determine your backset, measure the distance from the center of the hole drilled in the face of the door, to the door edge.
