SOURCE: My exterior door lock (Kwikset)

Get a big scredriver and put it in the square in the middle of the mechanism and turn it till it opens, or you will just have to pry it out with the scredriver.

Exterior door stuck closed manually retract ****** remove knobs KWIKSET


You will probably need to replace the latch assembly. There is a small rivet that holds part of the latch together, and it also acts as a pivot point for a small piece that retracts the latch. If it gets bent, the latch won't retract fully, but you might be able to push it back and get the door open.

Door knob replacement


On the inside side of the door knob you should be able to use a screwdriver to remove the finish covering against the door. This should get you to a point where you can release everything.

My soon lock the bathroom door from the inside and now i cant get into the bathroom. how do i get the door knob off so that i can get inside the bathroom?


The short answer is that you can't get the doorknob off from the outside.

Lock sets and door knobs are purposely made that way to thwart any potential thief with a screwdriver from simply removing the door knob to gain access into our homes and rooms.

What you MAY TRY is to carefully pry loose the door trim in the area of the door knob away from the door jamb. You may have to carefully remove a trim nail in the process.
Then experiment with a flat, thin, solid tool like one of those rounded spatulas used for frosting cakes slipped in between the trim piece and the jamb. Your goal is to try to get the spring latch to retract away from the door's strike plate like James Bond with a credit card. Look at one of your other open doors to visualize how the mechanism works.
This is going to require some patience, but it may save you from having to destroy the door or frame to get into the room.

Good luck!

My exterior door lock (Kwikset) is stuck shut. The knob will not turn. I removed the knobs and tried to pull the mechanism back - but unable to. The door is therefore stuck shut.


Get a big scredriver and put it in the square in the middle of the mechanism and turn it till it opens, or you will just have to pry it out with the scredriver.

Door lock is loose


Inside plate arond the base of the knob needs to pop off.

Try removing the knob from the inside. Look for a place the push in with a flat head screwdriver. A release point is there some where.

After the knob is off the plate should come off and reveal the screws.

My door handle came apart and now I have the pieces and don't know how to put them back together. Kwikset, chelsea door handle.


I assume the latch mechanism is still intact... the piece on the edge of the door that locks inside the strike plate when the door is shut -- if that's the case the only thing left to do is align the two knobs, one on iether side of the door, making sure the shaft goes thru the latch mechanism properly (it only fits thru one way) and then sandwich it tightly to the door and tighten it together with a phillips head screwdriver... some kwikset locks require you to turn one of the knobs to get the bolt heads to seat properly.

I'm not familiar with the chelsea model but they are all very similar... if you have more than the 2 knobs with a long shaft on one then chances are the solution above does not apply... you probably will have a knob with shaft and then a flat plate with holes, a finished plate and a plain knob... in this case align the knob and shaft thru the latch mechanism, place the plate with holes on the other side of the door and twist it slightly so the bolt heads lock in and tighten the bolts to the plate... now snap the finished plate over that and push the knob over the exposed shaft that remains... you'll need a flat head screw driver to lock the knob on where a small spring loaded piece fits into a cutout on the handle...

that's about the best I can explain it.
