Question about Amerock Door Knobs, Handles & Hinges

Open Question

I need a backset replacement for a 1980's Atrium Door.

This door has wider than normal glass panels which resulted in a "stubby" lever with a 2" backset. The backset and working parts of the door are one piece. I've been told that Atrium Company quit making them and National Lock made them for a while and then their operation was taken over the Amerock. However, I've been unable to locate the part. My levers are antique brass and are still functional, but I need the interior one piece replacement part that includes the 2" backset. One side of the lever handset has stationary pins that go through the 1-piece working part to secure it in the hole cut for the door hardware.

SOURCE: Too long backset on new Door Knob for older home's door

You can get a variety of backsets at a GOOD door/ window company.
You may also want to look closely at the lock bolt again, because some of them come with a backset adjuster. Some of the Schlage and Kwiksets will allow you to twist the barrel and change the backset...

How do I reverse a door handle on a hollow core door so the latch will close from the inside instead of the outside?


Most of the time all you need to do is swap the two handles and flip the latch over so the angled part of the latch is on the other side, so it will self latch when you close the door.

New deadbolt notworking?


You have the lever that goes from the key cylinder part of the lock through the striker portion of the locking assembly turned part way, either in the wrong direction or not turned enough in the right direction so if you take the inside portion of the lock off and pull the outside portion out of the door and rotate the lever to its proper position and then put if all back together in the correct sequence it should work properly.

Lower the window, use a wedge to pry the two door halves open a bit. Try spraying the lock and all link arms etc, with WD40. It may also be possible to reach down with a bar etc and pull the lever that's not moving to pop the lock open. Just work slowly and carefully so you don't bend the door out of shape or break the glass.

Unable to remove old door handle for Baldwin 5255 lever


They are usally pressure fitted, however paint on the door it self will make it stick.
Take an sharp utility knife and score the paint as tight to the
escutcheon as you can, then it should pry off.

How 2 instal a kwikset lock


  1. Step 1 Remove the cover plates, or roses, from around your doorknob handles. They are typically not fastened, so you will simply need to slide them away from the door using your hands. If they are on too tightly, try twisting them to loosen them up. Not all lock sets will have these plates, so don't worry if yours does not. They are simply for aesthetics.
  2. Step 2 Unscrew the two screws that are holding the lock in place. These will typically be on the inside of your home. You can dispose of these screws once they are removed as your new lock will come with appropriate fasteners.
  3. Step 3 Grasp one doorknob in each hand and slowly pull them apart until they are removed from the door.
  4. Step 4 You have an option to now remove and replace the backset (the piece that sticks out from the side of the door and catches in the striker plate). Purely optional unless the new lock is a different manufacturer and does not work with the new lock.
  5. Step 5 Remove your lock from the package. Make sure that the side with the keyhole (exterior door) is on the correct side of the door (outside of the home/room). Slide the two knobs together so that the spindles on one half of the lock connect with the holes on the other half. Push them toward the door until they are flush with the face of the door.
  6. Step 6 Install the two set screws that come with the lock. The location for these screws will be marked on the lock package.
  7. Step 7 Push the cover plates (roses) flush to the door to finish the installation. Not all lock sets will have these plates, so don't worry if yours does not. They are simply for aesthetics.
  8. I hope this helps and good luck.

Baldwin 6321 mortise:when locked can open from either side


It sounds as if the lock is installed backwards or more specifically in inside mechanism. The inside lever/handle when turned should retract the deadbolt (safety feature). If yours does not currently switch around.
