Question about Irwin Saws

Open Question

Irwin Industrial Tools 3111001 Carbon Door Lock Installation Kit (Tools & Hardware). Had bought this a year ago -- but ended up buying a door in the frame. But figured we were all set when we went to hang just a door today. Opened the totally sealed Irwin kit package. Followed the instructions. Bored the hole for the knob without a problem. Went to use the small borer for the latch -- its threads don't match the drill bit supplied! We did everything we could think of. There is not a parts list. Was there supposed to be another bit? (We ended up having to improvise with a large drill bit, a narrow chisel, and a knife.) The kit wasn't expensive -- but it only half worked -- so wasted a lot of our time. Aggravating!

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: Broken door knob, cannot enter room

I know I don't need to mention that knobs with an emergency release inside the house are wonderful things. Many function by sliding a nail into a hole in the middle of the door knob, others use the push/turn technique.

First thing to try is pushing the door knob in and then pulling it out while turning it as far as you can in both directions. If a part is worn out or misaligned, sometimes this is just enough to do the trick. If that doesn't work:

Now that the pins are out of the hinges, try working with another person if you can. Don't concentrate all of your efforts on the latch if you haven't been able to access it because of the moldings. Hinges get sticky and may need a good nudge.

Have one person push the door up from the bottom or top with a small pry bar or large screw driver. While this is happening, watch the hinges. They fit together like a jig saw puzzle, there should be play and they will loosen up a bit now. Now you will have an idea of the best way to try this.

Remember, the hinge side is no longer attached, so caution is in order. If you are working from a side without molding, pull out from the bottom and/or top while lifting gently with the pry bar. You can sometimes use a fulcrum and step on the pry bar if you are alone.

If molding is blocking your side, try pushing the hinge side inward. If that doesn't work, Using the pry bar, go to the bottom corner on the door knob side and tilt the door toward the opposite corner as much as possible.

If you can, jam something as sturdy as possible (screwdrivers)above and below where the latch is. With another screwdriver of tool, push directly into the latch and push the handle of what you are using in the direction opposite the door. Give it a good yank.

Try to be observant and creative while doing this. You are looking to try and squeeze out just a little more space. Use any area where you see play. Underneath, along side, up top, where ever.

There will undoubted be some damage to the wood or paint, remove the molding piece alongside the latch. It will be affordable to replace if you are a diy person.

For the others that commented, parts inside get worn and as mentioned above, the shaft has to be aligned correctly. If not, you run into problems like the latch not fully engaging.

Cutting the knob off will be a bit difficult. Even when that is done, it may be difficult to remove the latch and metal burrs are razor sharp. I think I would call a handyman before attempting that. Good luck all.

How to install new door lock


For a residential door, you may choose either 2 3/4" (70 mm) backset or 2 3/8" (60 mm) backset. Some locks are not adjustable.
Choose the backset required for the lock. Check the thickness of the door. Standard installation height is 35-36" above the floor.
Bore a 1" diameter hole into the edge of the door and a 2 1/8" hole through the face. A drilling jig helps align these two holes. If you measure and mark the holes carefully and drill accurately, it can be done without a jig, but for about $20.00 the jig helps avoid lock alignment problems or possibly trashing a door. Follow the instructions for the jig and the lock manufacturers instructions.

Can u show me a diagram on how to wire my blu-Ray to my samsung smart tv


You dont need a diagram. Take a HDMI cable from the blu ray to the TV input. Take note if it is HDMI 1 though 6 and switch to that input to watch it.

Just installed a Schlage secureKey deadbolt. The key goes in the keyhole but won't turn. The inside works fine - locks and unlocks.


the first thing to check is to take the hardware off the door and check the lock cylinder with the key and make sure the key works the cylinder,, lots of times the tail piece is in the wrong position and will not allow the lock to turn. also - sometimes the latch and the lock are not lined up and bind, preventing the cylinder from turning.
but maybe the cyclinder itself is keyed wrong and if you take it back to the store where you bought it you should be able to swap it out for one that works,, install that one and all should be good.

Professional Door Lock installation Kit: After 2-3 years all of the sudden none of our keys...


The lock is bad very common problem with them, If you got 2-3 years out of your "smartkey" lock those things are like dinosaurs most of them don't make it 3 months and this problem happens. Get the traditional pin tumbler version of the Kwikset lock and this will never happen again. Plus it will be an easy swop out since they use the same latch.

Change batteries on kwikset pushbotton lock.


Hi,
If it's the lock I think it is, all you need to do is to remove the two screws on the inside of the door that holds the lock to the door. Pull straight out on the whole assembly. You should see the exposed battery once you have removed the outer case and handle.
Hope This Helps,

Keyless entry system installation


The esiest way will be to ad an aftermarket central lock motor to your cars drivers door you can buy these seperatly at most alarm shops for a few dollars ,the idea is that you can hook up your ebay kit directly to this motor and this motor will drive the cars central locking.The aftermarket motor hooks up to the lock button rod in your drivers door.You will see this rod moving when you remove the trim and lock and unlock yhe door via the up/down button/knob.

Lost keys to my Entry door lock


Visit your local Home Depot and purchase a Kwikset re-keying kit. They're inexpensive and work fine but stay alert and follow the instructions properly. This kit comes complete with proper pins as well as new keys. Good Luck!
