SOURCE: I have extreme difficulty locking the deadbolt

Doors often sag downward just from use and gravity. This causes a misalignment of the bolt and the keeper (hole the deadbolt goes into) causing binding and dragging whenever you lock or unlock. You are correct that leaving this unfixed will quickly damage the lockset and be much more expensive to fix. A solution to the immediate problem is to lower the keeper to match where the deadbolt lines up. If you are semi-handy with tools you can probably do this yourself.
Extend the deadbolt with the door open. Push it against the door casing and mark above and below it with pencil. You should be able to "eyeball" it and see the problem by lining up the marks with the keeper. Unscrew the metal keeper from the jamb. Transfer the marks as close as possible from the casing to the jamb (surface where the keeper was). You will need to fill the old screw holes with wood because, when you remount the keeper, the new holes will be close to the old ones. You can use a sharpened popsicle stick, matchstick, toothpicks - whatever - to do this. Best to use glue. Tap them in fairly tight then break or cut the sticks level with the surface. Reposition your keeper vertically to match your pencil marks and screw it back to the jamb. Hold it in place in the new position and mark the screw holes then make a pilot hole for the screws with a nail. [Be careful not to change its position horizontally or the door won't close right] You may also have to remove some wood from the bottom of the hole behind the keeper where the deadbolt rests when locked. Easiest with a hammer and chisel but can be done with a good knife or drill and determination. I haven't looked but I wouldn't be surprised to find a Utube video of this process if you care to search. Good Luck!

How do I remove the doorknob to possibly oil it?


it would depend on the door knob construction and what was stiff inside it.
The problem could be part of the handle or part of the lock mechanism.
For a typical indoor door lever handle, undo the screws on the face plate and take the handle off and oil as appropriate. You may have oil handles on both sides of the door.
For a rotating door knob handle there is generally a single screw on the underside of the knob
For a lock mechanism, you could just spray oil inside the mortise moving part (you wouldn't have to dismantle anything to do this!).
However to dismantle it, you'll need to remove handles on both sides of the door, remove the square bar that slots between both handles and remove the lock mechanism (you may have to remove locating screws that exist on the mortise face. If lock mechanism is user serviceable then there will be screws to undo to allow it to be dismantled. If none exist then it is probably worth buying a new one.

Remove stuck screw


If the screw head is stripped you will have to replace the knob and screw. Try holding the screw head and turn the handle is its a single knob. Otherwise use a hacksaw or dremel tool and cut about 3/8" away from the door surface, once you cut through you can use a small punch to push the screw through the door then pliers to pull it out. Alternately you could use a dremel tool and carefully grind the head of the screw down until you can brake the head off and pull the handle and screw out through the front.

My wrought iron door has a tamper proof screw missing. Can I replace it with another type of screw like a flathead or phillips head?


You can replace it with any type screw head. I would recommend however using a screw with the proper shank size. That is to say, a srew that is the same diameter.

The center (Function) knob has stripped. Where do I get a replacement?


I would just take the old knob to Home Depot or another hardware store and buy a knob with a set screw.

The screws that hold our doorknob don't hold the knob anymore.They have loose threads and the screws are already too short that they don't hold the knob anymore. Everytime we turn the knob and pull it to...


Get a tap and re-tap the threads to the next screw size up. Then get matching setscrews. You could put a bit of Loctite on the new screws to keep them secure. Use a FINE thread tap so you get more threads in the knob.

Another solution is to clean and fill old screw hole with metal filled epoxy. Let is dry and re-drill and re-tap to original thread. Devcon makes a filled epoxy as well as JB Weld.

2002 jetta brake caliper bleed screw install. Took it out too far, and now will not go all the way back in. Any ideas??


Yes you probably cross threaded it when you were trying to put it back into the caliper, they are made of aluminum for the most part and they strip very easily. The caliper should be steel but on a newer vehicle might be a lighter alloy. If it is only partially in but is sealing and no brake fluid is present I wouldn't worry too much about it. If the system is sealing then you have four options:

1. Forcefully screw the bleeder screw all the way down and hope you dont break it off in the caliper and it seals.

2. Buy a new bleeder screw and make sure it threads straight in.

3. Buy a new bleeder screw and a tap and die kit. Retap the hole in the caliper to the proper thread size (you are basically cleaning up the threads at this points, not making the whole any larger). Screw the new bleeder screw in.

4. Buy a tap and die kit and tap the hole out to a larger diameter and replace it with a larger diameter bleeder screw.

You can also buy a new caliper or helicoil the old one, but this would require drilling and tapping the old one anyhow.

I have old glass door knobs and the shafts are stripped and also need the set screws. Where can I find this parts?


Probably all you need are the set screws to lock them in place. They are sometimes allen head set screws, though some older ones will have a flat head screw like those shown here. In either case, a good hardware store with many drawers of small specialty screws should be able to set you up with what you need. Take a knob or two with you and make sure to get a screw with the correct size diameter and thread pitch, so you don't strip out the threads in the knob. (You can check the knob using longer screws to determine the correct dimensions, then find a set screw that matches.)
You could also try a specialty catalog along the lines of Van ****'s restorers, click here, or a specialty hardware supplier online like the one here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Door knob


A couple of ideas: Sometimes the top of the knob is a cap which can be levered off with a sharp blade. Or, there is a grub screw (which may need a hex key to turn it) in a hole on the underside of the knob.
