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

I installed a schlange front door handleset and have trouble with the inside doorknob. The handleset itself doesn't have a lock(its a 2 piece-came with freestanding deadbolt-the only keyed part) but when I try to open the doorknob twisting it to the left, the handleset 'locks'. The latch part gets stuck halfway in. What is wrong?

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.

    This is the lock mechanism in the doorknob of an outdoor shed. I can't open the door to get to the inside where the lockset or the screw is to take the know off the door. I am in process of drilling out the lock from the doorknob but I am halfway through and it's still won't open. Was asking if there is a special type of drill bit I need to drill through the lock?

Install a single handleset


Is this into an existing door or a new door. Is there existing cut outs where the lock set goes or is this a blank door?

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.

Why won't the door latch extend fully anymore? It extended fully for a few days after being installed.


Why does the interior knob or lever on my front entry handleset sometimes cause the latch mechanism to jam and the exterior thumb press to lock in place?If the front entry handleset is newly installed, the latch mechanism may be binding. If the exterior handleset is left sitting in the bottom of the bore hole through the door, the rectangular spindle that extends through the latch may be somewhat tilted and binding. This can be checked by loosening all screws, slightly lifting the exterior handle, and then tightening the screws before releasing the handle. This may make the spindle more level with the latch and eliminate the binding. If this does not resolve the problem, or the handleset has been installed for some time before the problem occurs, the latch mechanism may be failing and need to be replaced.

Broken door knob. no access to hinges, screws. Rental property!


Take apart a similar doorknob in your house. Use the stem with knob on it and insert into the square hole in the lock--turn!

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 :)

Tubular design deadbolt stuck in lock position. Door cannot open.


if you remove the screw from the deadbolt and remove the keyed parts you can see the plunger assembly. you can use a flat head screw driver and turn the plunger in. it will unlock the door and you will be able to replace the deadbolt

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.

Problems changing a doorknob


If there are no visable screws on the inside of the door than there is a cover plate that can be removed by prying it off with a small screwdriver revealing the screws. Please remember to rate my answer
