Depends what side of the door you are on. If you are able to be on the inside simply remove the screws that retain the deadbolt lock, and remove it completely. If however you are on the outside of the locked door you may need a locksmith. You could try to drill the key slot out and otherwise bust the lock, or perhaps use a pair of vice grips and unscrew the lock part. This is dependant of what type of lock it is.

How do i remove the plugs covering the screws on the schlage deadbolt?


Schlage FAQs Schlage
The double cylinder deadbolts are keyed on both sides. On the interior side of the home there are drive pins (sometimes called screw covers) covering up the screws. Recommended method: Indent the center of each drive pin with a nail punch. Then use a carbon tip drill bit (about the size of a pencil lead) and ONLY go down 1/8". The drive pin will disintegrate. The drive pins will need to be replaced as they are no longer usable.

Remove deadbolt


Look for screws on the edge of the door. They might be hidden under a cover plate. There is always a way to remove a lock.

How do I fix a Schlage deadbolt. B60 series will not unlock from the inside unless the key is inserted from the outside


With the door open, remove the interior trim (thumb turn) from the door, and using the key, turn the deadbolt to the locked position. Now re-install the thumb turn, in the locked position, and with the key removed see if you are able to unlock the deadbolt. I suspect that the tailpiece (part that sticks out of the lock cylinder and into the thumb turn) is not in the correct position.

Key will not come out in unlocked position


I presume you figured it out by now, but if the tailpiece is installed wrong in many deadbolts, the key won't come out in one position or the other. It's called a "timing" problem and the way to fix it is to take it off the door, turn the tailpiece a half circle and put it back on the door. Usually Kwikset locks are designed so you can't put it in the wrong way, but it can happen. (If it's not the timing problem, then the deadbolt unit is defective or broken. They are designed to fail in a way that keeps them locked, so this could be a sign that someone tried to break in, or that someone used the extended bolt as a way to stop the door from closing and it hit the door frame too hard.)

The best way to install a deadbolt lock without the instructions handy is to look at the "lazy" cam and see if there is a way to install it wrong and don't install it that way. Example: If there are 2 ways for the tailpiece to fit in the deadbolt unit when the deadbolt is retracted and only one way for the tailpiece to fit in when the deadbolt is extended, then install the lock with the deadbolt extended and you can't install it wrong.

Double cylinder deadbolt, bolt stuck in jam


You will have to remove cylinders from both sides of door, then stick a phillips screwdriver thru the bolt and push the screwdriver toward the hinge edge of the door.Might take a bit of pressure, depending on how hard its wedged into the jam, and you might break the bolt, but thats about the only way to get it out.try to determine why it got stuck before installing new one.

Schlage deadbolt will not unlock even with the use of a key?


it sounds as though the linkage that pulls the deadbolt back has disengaged... if you undo the screws from the inside of the door and remove the manual knob there will be 2 more screws holding the key lock to the door. A thin flat bar is attached to the key lock that goes through the deadbolt and into the manual knob. This bar turns with the key, sliding the bolt on its track to lock and unlock the door. Once the lock is apart check the key in the lock to see if the bar turns when the key does. then see if there is anything that may be obstructing the deadbolt from sliding. The locks are pretty indestructible so if there is a problem it may have been from the install... perhaps the door is to wide for the lock to engage properly and the lock worked loose in the 6 months that it worked.

Exterior key for deadbolt just turns around and around.


It sounds like the exterior tumbler is bad, it is less expensive to just replace the whole deadbolt than to have the tumbler repaired.

Deadbolt wont unlock


Remove the deadbolt cover by removing the 2 screws. This will get you inside the deadbolt. Try using a screwdriver to pull it back. You may in the end have to break the unit in order to get it out and replace it. I have the same thing happen with a deadbolt. I ended up having to destroy the unit to get it out. You are going to replace it anyway so do whatever it takes to get it to unlock so you can then remove it from the door and install a new one. You do not want a deadbolt that will not unlock.
