What is a keyway, and what’s the difference between KW1 and SC1 keyways?
The keyway is the opening in the lock where you insert a key to operate the lock. If you have more than one keyed lock on your home, you may want to use the same keyway in all of the locks. This allows a locksmith to key all of your locks to the same key, which means the same key will operate all of the locks in your home.
KW1 represents a Kwikset KW1 keyway, and SC1 represents a Schlage SC1 keyway. If you would like your new Stone Harbor locks to match an existing key, it is important to select the same keyway for your locks. One way to determine your keyway is to compare your existing key to the images below.
If you are not matching an existing key, we recommend that you order all of your new locks (keyed knobs and levers, deadbolts and handlesets) with the same keyway.
How do I know which backset to choose for my pocket door lock?
The size of the backset is the distance between the edge of the door to the center of the hole that is drilled in the door for the lock.
What is included with a handleset?
Stone Harbor handlesets include everything you need for the exterior side of the door.
What is included with an interior trim pack?
Stone Harbor interior trim packs include everything for the interior side of the door: the knob or lever, the thumb turn for the deadbolt, and all necessary mounting hardware. Some interior trim packs are handed, which means you will need to choose whether your door is left or right-handed.
Handing is determined from the outside of the door and depends on the hinges. If the hinges are on the right, the door is right-handed, and vice versa. In-swing or out-swing doesn’t matter; it is always the hinge side.
Why are handlesets and interior trim packs sold separately?
Packaging handlesets and interior trim packs separately allows you to create the best look for your home. For example, you can choose different finishes for your exterior handleset and interior trim, if you would like.
