Most common reason for this is the hole its going into on the frame is either not deep enough and/or the hole and strike plate/larch are not properly aligned (i.e. its hitting the side of the wood etc.,).
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
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.

Hello there: the first thing that you need to do is use your tool if you have it and on the door knob look for a flat silver slot and press in on it and the door know will come off. Next use the pointed tip and look at the plate that covers the door hole and you will see a small hole put the point in the hole and just like a wrench turn it to the left to loosen it just like a nut and it will loosen up now just spin it off ond there will be a plate under neath this top plate so take this off. next you will be able to push the know out and this will release the lock assembly Now you are done this is a very easy door knob to work on ok? just replace the new door knob following the instructions ok? I really hope that this has helped you out ok best regards michael
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
It's actually quite simple, all you need is a drill and the right size or drill bit.
Choose a drill bit a about the size of the hole required, if you are not sure, choose a smaller size, it's easier to make a hole bigger.
Take apart the old knobs, from the inside of the cupboard, use the drill make the old holes bigger.
