Question about Top Knobs M826 Door Pull

1 Answer

Bashing doorknobs My bathroom has 2 doors at a 90 degree angle from each other when closed. Both hinges are near the corner and both doors open into the bath. Needless to say, if one door is open and I come in the other one, the knobs bash into each other or the doors bind interlocking the knobs. Is there some type of door stop(s) that can hold the doors always about 6" apart and slide across a door while they move?

You can go to any home center of hardware store to get a automtic door closer. (spring loaded hinge). that will altumatically close the door, that will prevent the door stay open and bash into each other.
there is no door stopper is big or long enough to do the trick.

Why won't my hinged cupboard door stay closed?


Depends on type of hinge, If it swings back open after you closed it then either the cupboard is not level (old style hinge)...
Or the spring inside hinge is bad/broken and not holding it closed. If the door opens back just a bit (1/2 inch or so) see if hinge has adjustable screws.

Door sticks terribly...


First check to make sure that the hinges are securely fastened to the door jamb. Gently try to tighten all screws but be careful not to over-tighten or strip the screw heads. It's possible loose screws could be causing the door to hang slightly making it fit improperly into the door jamb.

It's also possible that the door frame isn't 100% "true" and it could be causing the storm door to get caught along the top or bottom edge. You can check with a level to make sure that both sides of the door are plumb (perfect 90 degree angle). You can also use a carpenter's square to check that all of the interior angles in the door jamb are 90 degrees respective to each other.

If everything is square then it could be that the hinges on the storm door are not aligned properly. With the storm door slightly ajar use a level on the vertical edge both at the top and the bottom. It should, ideally, be the same as the door jamb. If it's slightly off you could try shimming either the top or bottom hinge as necessary to even the storm door until it is aligned with the door jamb.

If you find that your door jamb is not "true" then you may need to consult with a carpenter or storm door installation expert to find a way to trim your storm door or refit it for easy opening and closing. Many older homes settle over time and sometimes door jambs slip out of alignment. The door itself may still open and close as usual but it may have sufficient gaps on all sides to prevent it from getting stuck. The newer storm door may be too tight a fit and catching on a door jamb that has settled out of true.

How to put the striker from a door knob kit back together


i can help you with that...just follow this steps...
1.Remove the old doorknob by taking out the screws that hold it in. You will have to remove the striker separately by removing the screws that hold the strike plate in place on the outside edge of the door. Slide the striker out.
2.
Take the new doorknob, striker, and strike plate out of the packaging and look for the directions. (Most doorknobs are installed in the same way, but there are always exceptions.)

3.
Slide the striker bar into the hole. Insert the screws into the striker plate and tighten.

4.
ake the two halves of the doorknob, and place the one with the male end through the hole in the striker bar. Place the female side of the doorknob on the other side of the door and make sure that it lines up with the male end. Slide the two together. Screw the knob together using the two long screws that came with the doorknob. Make sure that the screws are tight. Make sure that you have the lock facing the right direction. You want the locking mechanism on the inside of the house or room.

5.
Test your work before you shut the door. Make sure that both sides of the door knob turn and the striker bar goes back and forth.

Sitting room door has closed shut and won't open. Hinges are on the other side and I have removed the handle from my end and it appears that a spring in the inside latch has broken.


Now you can put your standard screwdriver in the hole in the middle of the metal where you removed the doorknob, turn the screwdriver, and now your door will open.

Bathroom doorknob stuck in locked position.


Hello,

I will tell you how to fix 'em. Open the Door Knob with a screw driver, gently pull aart the two knobs once open, then look for a long sliding rod, pull one knob away, twist the Knob untlil it is in unlock position, put them back together to test if it slips properly. If it does not, there is something preventing the rod from rotating freely. Try to ensure it rotates freely. Then screw back together :)

Doorknob sticks in 'lock' position-but no real 'lock' feature


If this is the lock part itself,try gradually loosening install screw enough to be able to manuver lock to work and if so slowly tighten as you test each time gradually. Please clarify problem more if need to.

Stuck Door Knob with No Access!


I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
