Tip & How-To about Miscellaneous
My front door has a very nice Emtek cast bronze door latch set with a deadbolt. a few months ago the inside handle started sagging so I looked on line and did not see what I thought the problem might be. At any rate it turned out to be super simple so I thought I would post the fix hear with pics.
I simply removed the interior side of the lock set and found that the spring that holds the lever handle up had slipped off its stop. I simply removed the lock washer that holds it in place, re positioned the spring behind the stop and it works great now.
I am not sure how the spring slipped off, as it is quite tight but I am sure it had something to do with two ten year old boys going in and out constantly ;-)
