As these screws are hard to get to at a straight angle due to the handle being in the road the best way that I have found is to use a screwdriver with a flexible shaft. They can be hard to find and they are not cheap but they will allow you to be several degrees offset and still not crossthread the screws.Other than that you can try to start screws by hand to avoid crossthreading then carefully tighten with standard screwdriver. Thank 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.

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.

We can't remove the door knob from our bathroom door because there is no screws. Please advise


The knob part has a small slot on bottom side near the brass plate.
Get on the floor and look up.
Locate slot. Take a photo so you can enlarge what you see.

There is a metal tongue that is clicked down into the slot. This holds the knob from coming off.
Use small screwdriver to push up the tongue at the same time you are pulling to remove the knob.

Once the knob starts coming out, you have to pull screwdriver out of the way.
Knob comes off.
Brass plate covers the screws. Use screwdriver on edge of brass plate to remove. Notice brass place has small indents where a screwdriver can fit.

Once plate and knob are off, you have access to screws.
Take photos as you go so everything goes back smoothly.

When putting knob back, the tongue might have to be pushed so knob goes on.
Push knob into place until you hear tongue click into slot.

I have 3 door knobs on outside doors that are loose and need to be tightened. the knobs have come completely off sometimes when we go out the doors. how do I tighten the knobs so they are not loose?


On the inside side of the door knob, there is a decorative plate. Depending on which model door knobs you have, it is held on with a "set-screw" that might require an allen-wrench (looks like an 8-sided tool; usually in an L-shape), or just simply a screw driver, to loosen and remove it. Once you take the decorative plate off, there will be two very obvious screws that hold both sides (inside and outside) of the door knob together. Tighten these screws to tighten your knobs, then put the decorative plates back on again.

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--

My door handle came apart and now I have the pieces and don't know how to put them back together. Kwikset, chelsea door handle.


I assume the latch mechanism is still intact... the piece on the edge of the door that locks inside the strike plate when the door is shut -- if that's the case the only thing left to do is align the two knobs, one on iether side of the door, making sure the shaft goes thru the latch mechanism properly (it only fits thru one way) and then sandwich it tightly to the door and tighten it together with a phillips head screwdriver... some kwikset locks require you to turn one of the knobs to get the bolt heads to seat properly.

I'm not familiar with the chelsea model but they are all very similar... if you have more than the 2 knobs with a long shaft on one then chances are the solution above does not apply... you probably will have a knob with shaft and then a flat plate with holes, a finished plate and a plain knob... in this case align the knob and shaft thru the latch mechanism, place the plate with holes on the other side of the door and twist it slightly so the bolt heads lock in and tighten the bolts to the plate... now snap the finished plate over that and push the knob over the exposed shaft that remains... you'll need a flat head screw driver to lock the knob on where a small spring loaded piece fits into a cutout on the handle...

that's about the best I can explain it.
