Question about Home Fencing

Open Question

I have an old door knob type lock on a house door, but can figure out how to remove it...it doesn't seem to have the normal screws to take the knobs apart. It seems to have threads in the middle, holding them together. I've been trying for an hour to unscrew them enough to see if they would come apart...any suggestions? Is anybody familiar with this type of home door-knob lock? It was probably installed in the 1950s.

SOURCE: Stuck Door Knob with No Access!

I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe

SOURCE: The door knob (lever door knob to exterior fancy door) came off.

When you first tightened the screws, the mechanism may have been loose enough to allow the actuator bar the connects the inside knob to the outside lever to work loose. When you tightened it you may have jambed that tight so things didn't work. When you disassembled everything, you may have lost that part. The springs are usually integrated into the catch part and are not removeable. Sometimes it helps to take everything completely off the door including the catch that goes in the edge of the door. Then reassemble it on a table to see what works and what doesn't. If that doesn't help, take all the pieces into Lowes at the key desk and they will be glad to help you.

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.

Does anyone know a possible way to remove the shift knob on my 94 passport? I bought a new knob and want to replace it, but I can't figure out how to take off the old one. I tried to just turn it left


knobs screw on normally and there is a small locking nut underneath the knob . IT could look like a taper ring to finish off the knob but it should turn down the lever to release the knob.

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.

The inside door knob came off of the Kwikset keyed door lock. How do I re-attach the knob?


There is probably a small set screw (hex head) on the bottom of the knob. If that doesn't work try just pushing it back on.

Can't remove the disk that covers the screws to tighten door handle with lock


Hi, W/D here.
Kwikset has basically two styles of cover plates.
If you are on the locking side of the door and facing the knob you'll either see two screw heads (one on either side of the knob), or you see only the cover plate.
It sounds like you have the cover plate type. Here's how to get to the screws:
1. Feel the underside of the knob, and you'll feel a slot with a tab sticking through it.
2. With a fine bladed screwdriver, press the tab up into the slot, and pull the knob towards you.
3. With the door knob off, look around the edge of the trim ring for a screw driver slot. Insert the screw driver and gently pry the trim ring up.
4. You're there!
5. Re-assembly is in the reverse order. When you go to put the knob back on, you'll probably have to use the screw driver to push in the tab as you slide the knob back on.
Best regards, --W/D--

How do I remove the inside door panel of a 2001 AU11 Ford Fairmont to get at the manual door cable?

  1. Remove the inside door handles by unfastening the retaining screws.

  3. Remove the mirror remote control bezel nut and bezel.
Before you proceed to the next step, carefully inspect the door panel to make sure that all the retaining screws have been removed.

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 !

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.
