Customer Question
We have an exterior...

We have an exterior door that has a Kwikset lever handle on the inside. The lever handle has become very loose. I have slid a small flat screwdriver into the slot, but am so far unable to pull off the lever handle. Suggestions? BTW, my name is Bob.

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Looseness started a while ago. Today is my first attempt to fix.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can, yes.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That’s it, thanks.
