If the handle has been forced their is a part inside that is broken and it appears as if the handle is loose. I have priced the replacement parts and they were over 75% of  what I could purchase the whole thing for ,so I elected to purchase new and go with the direct replacment model L1000 (Lever) to make it ADA compliant at the same time.

I have a unican and need to take it off the door and replace it but need the instructions?

Look for a small hole in the side of the spindle, close to the lock. Poke a stiff wire into the hole to release the inside handle.

Try loosening the collar as much as possible and access the poke hole. I'm not sure how you managed to get the handle on, You might need to drill the collar, but if drilled while the collar is loose, the damage could be hidden. Good luck! Replacement collars are available, if all else fails.

How do I remove a unican L1000 lock from the door? I have the upper lock cylinder out, and used the spanner wrench to remove the ring on the non entry side. How do I get the handle off to remove the lock...

use the other side of the spanner wrench with the point and insert it into the hole in the inside sleeve and you will feel some spring tension.........push in the tool and pull the handle off at the same time.

I changed my combination and dont know what i set it to

If you forgot the combo you will need to reprogram it. If you can not get in to open the door to reprogram you can email llco at for an override code.

Good Luck
