Question about Locks & Locksmithing

I have fitted a door knob to bedroom door. This lock has a key. The problem is that I cannot lock the door and go out as it does not lock. The key seems to release the latch when the knob is depressed but will not lock the door

Hello joan. check to be sure that the door properly latches when it opens and closes with out locking it at all. sometimes the latch does not easily and freely go into the latch hole as the latch hole needs to be adjusted. joe

Our schlage lock with thumbturn on inside and keyed on outside. When unlock inside, knob turns freely as if it is really unlocked but if I close door, I get locked out. Please help


Be sure the outside knob is unlocked before closing the door.
Schlage locks do not lock the inside knob or lever. After releasing the turn button, also turn the inside lever or knob, then check the outside knob.
What model of lock is this?

Door knob replacement


On the inside side of the door knob you should be able to use a screwdriver to remove the finish covering against the door. This should get you to a point where you can release everything.

The lock got flipped on the bedroom door. I am now locked out. The door knob has been removed but I cannot get the mechanism inside the door unlocked. How can I do this?


You are almost there. Take the knob containing the spindle and insert into the latch mechanism. Twist it and the lock button will pop out. Open the door. Put everything back together. NOTE: I just confirmed this using a lock mechanism in front of me as I answered this.

I locked my bedroom door with my keys in the room


Look closely at the door knob and you will see a very small hole in the middle of the door knob. Use a piece of stiff metal such as a heavy paper clip straightened out and push it into that hole. that will unlock the door to your bedroom if you have a normal bedroom door lock.

Broken door knob. no access to hinges, screws. Rental property!


Take apart a similar doorknob in your house. Use the stem with knob on it and insert into the square hole in the lock--turn!

My knob has fallen off


sounds like the lockset has come apart in a way that it was not intended... normally you need to push a small spring loaded pin on the knob shaft in to remobe the knob, then a finished trim plate snaps off revealing the plate that gets tightened down to the face of the door... after tightening you snap the trim plate back on then the knob snaps on while pushing the pin in...

if it's a standard bedroom unkeyed lock then the plate and knob are one piece and the screws are exposed thru 2 holes on the inside knob...

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
