The knob part in the door use lock tight on screws. The screws in the frame/jam you have to drill out and glue in a dowel pin Then you can rescrew the screws in after the glue drys for at least 30 mintues to 1 hour the longer the better.

I put the latch on the door and the handle won't push in. When I loosen the screw, it is too loose


The actuating bar (the push rod) that actually works the lock was not properly sized. They are very finicky. If you cut it just a bit too long or too short it will cause all kinds of problems.

Weiser door knob GA9771A-S. Loose interior door knob. How do I tighten?


Remove the knob by pushing in the small pin on the edge of the knob shaft. Then use a screwdriver in the small inset on the edge of the handle cover to pop the cover off. Tighten the 2 screws under the cover, replace parts.

How do you turn a kwikset knob so that the key teeth face up instead of down


you can only do this if the center drive is square if it has the c shape it becomes one way only.if it were square you would just remove and spin the knob.

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.

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.
