Usually in the very center of the handle there is a piece that will pop out if you slide a sharp knife under it and pry...then under there you will find a screw that holds the knob on...remove this screw and the knob will pull off of the stem...

My soon lock the bathroom door from the inside and now i cant get into the bathroom. how do i get the door knob off so that i can get inside the bathroom?

The short answer is that you can't get the doorknob off from the outside.

Lock sets and door knobs are purposely made that way to thwart any potential thief with a screwdriver from simply removing the door knob to gain access into our homes and rooms.

What you MAY TRY is to carefully pry loose the door trim in the area of the door knob away from the door jamb. You may have to carefully remove a trim nail in the process.
Then experiment with a flat, thin, solid tool like one of those rounded spatulas used for frosting cakes slipped in between the trim piece and the jamb. Your goal is to try to get the spring latch to retract away from the door's strike plate like James Bond with a credit card. Look at one of your other open doors to visualize how the mechanism works.
This is going to require some patience, but it may save you from having to destroy the door or frame to get into the room.

Good luck!

Bathroom door kwik Set is locked on the inside by child. How do you unlock the door from the out side. There is only a hole NO Key to unlock door.

usually on a quik set there is a little hole right in the center of the door knob. take something small around as a coat hanger and insert it in the hole. push it and it should unlock. Other door knobs have a hole just to the left or right of the know. these you can unlock with a real small screw driver

Bathroom has a chrome radiator with two knobs at the bottom (one on each leg). I turned it off in the summer but now cant turn it on again. I have tried anticlockwise and clockwise and nothing happens. ...

Almost all valves turn to right or clockwies to close and left or counterclockwise to open. You might try spraying some WD-40 on bottom side of knobs.Let it set for a few mins. Tap on top of knobs lightly with a non marring tool such as wooden hammer handle and try to open. If it still wont open you can wrap knob tightly with masking tape or duct tape to protect the finish and use channel lock pliers or pipe wrench to try to open.Don't force it as you could break valve stem. Spray again with WD-40 and repeat above procedure until valve moves freely. Hope this helps. Thanks P:S WD-40 also works well to remove any adhesive left when you remove tape.

Hi i have a weiser GA331P privacy door knob set in my bathroom door, and i have noticed that it can be pushed in and in the locked postion and when the door shuts it stays locked. I am concerned thay...

the weiser set should have a tiny hole in the knob or rosette around the knob. A paperclip or such can be pushed into the hole to unlock the door. That is the primary difference between a privacy lock and a security lock. Farmerbear at FixYa

I have a Moen Two Handle Bath Tub Set (I think is the MontiCello Modle) the right handle does not stop at the close position and revolves 360 degree when turned. I have to find the appropirate position...

You can get a replacement cartridge at any hardware store, such as Lowe's, Home Depot, True Value etc... You just have to know the name brand and type. But sounds like it is just the knob broken. You could get two knobs that match if you can't get one exact.

Bathroom doorknob stuck in locked position.


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 :)
