Question about Locks & Locksmithing

1 Answer

How do I remove this doorknob? It has no visible screws, and no tabs or set screws to remove the knob itself.

I have some pictures of the knob, I snapped the cover off of it, and can still not see how to remove it.

Look for a pin or slot on the side for an insert to pop the cover hiding the screws.

The set screw has fallen out of our doorknob and is lost. What can I use as a replacement?


Just go to the hardware store and get another set screw. They sell them individually in the hardware aisle.

I have an exterior screwless doorknob that I need to remove. The faceplate on the inside knob that covers the screws is also covering the little pin that removes the knob. Is there another way to remove...


There is the 3rd version of the Kwikset exterior door set. The interior face plate is removed and on each side of the base plate has small slots with a lever on either side that need to be moved to the other end of the slot. The whole interior knob assembly with come off.

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.

How to tighten loose Gainsborough passage door knobs?


Hi, W/D here.
I don't know your brand of lock, but I have extensive experience with locksets. My information, then will be somewhat generic, but should get you what you need.
Since you called it a passage lockset, I'm assuming that it an be locked from one side as in a bedroom lock, operated by button that is either pushed or turned to lock the door.
On that side of the lock, there will be two screws, one on either side of the knob. Sometimes the screws are hidden by the trim ring. If that is your case, you'll need to look around the trim ring for a slot that you can insert a screwdriver into to remove the trim ring. If this is your type, the doorknob will have to also come off. This is usually accomplished by another tab on the neck of the doorknob that you have to press in with a screwdriver and pull the knob off once the tab clears the neck. (It sounds harder than it really is). Anyway, take the knob off, pop the trim ring and tighten the screws.
Hope that this has helped, --W/D--

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 :)

How do I remove the doorknob from a weiser passage set? Want to paint door and remove passage set. Can't seem to find any slot to remove doorknob.


Door knobs have an escutcheon plate (The round part that touches the door ) that covers the screws attaching the knob together.

To get the knob off first look along the shaft of the knob ( The straight part between where you grab the knob and the escutcheon) there should either be a allen head screw or just a metal button. If its a button push in on it while you pull the knob away from the door or if its a screw just unscrew it either way the knob will come off.

Now look at the edge of the escutcheon where it touches the door. On some models there's a little detent or hole where you can put a small flat head screwdriver in to pop the escutcheon loose from the plate. If there is no detent or hole then it may be screwed on. Just grab the escutcheon and turn to the left.

Once you get the escutcheon off you'll be able to see the screws that attach the door hardware together. Just make sure to pay attention to how you took it apart so it goes back the same way.

Hope that helps !

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.

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.
