If this is the lock part itself,try gradually loosening install screw enough to be able to manuver lock to work and if so slowly tighten as you test each time gradually. Please clarify problem more if need to.

If there are no visable screws on the inside of the door than there is a cover plate that can be removed by prying it off with a small screwdriver revealing the screws. Please remember to rate my answer

Did you cut the bar to the correct lenght?(the flat or square one that connects to the thumb latch or other cylinder?) Too long and you'll bind the lock.Good Luck

SOURCE: How do I remove the doorknob from a weiser passage

Door knobs have an escutcheon plate (The round part that touches the door ) that covers the screws attaching the knob together.

To get the knob off first look along the shaft of the knob ( The straight part between where you grab the knob and the escutcheon) there should either be a allen head screw or just a metal button. If its a button push in on it while you pull the knob away from the door or if its a screw just unscrew it either way the knob will come off.

Now look at the edge of the escutcheon where it touches the door. On some models there's a little detent or hole where you can put a small flat head screwdriver in to pop the escutcheon loose from the plate. If there is no detent or hole then it may be screwed on. Just grab the escutcheon and turn to the left.

Once you get the escutcheon off you'll be able to see the screws that attach the door hardware together. Just make sure to pay attention to how you took it apart so it goes back the same way.

Hope that helps !

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!

I have an exterior screwless doorknob that I need to remove. The faceplate on the inside knob that covers the screws is also covering the little pin that removes the knob. Is there another way to remove...


There is the 3rd version of the Kwikset exterior door set. The interior face plate is removed and on each side of the base plate has small slots with a lever on either side that need to be moved to the other end of the slot. The whole interior knob assembly with come off.

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.

How to tighten loose Gainsborough passage door knobs?


Hi, W/D here.
I don't know your brand of lock, but I have extensive experience with locksets. My information, then will be somewhat generic, but should get you what you need.
Since you called it a passage lockset, I'm assuming that it an be locked from one side as in a bedroom lock, operated by button that is either pushed or turned to lock the door.
On that side of the lock, there will be two screws, one on either side of the knob. Sometimes the screws are hidden by the trim ring. If that is your case, you'll need to look around the trim ring for a slot that you can insert a screwdriver into to remove the trim ring. If this is your type, the doorknob will have to also come off. This is usually accomplished by another tab on the neck of the doorknob that you have to press in with a screwdriver and pull the knob off once the tab clears the neck. (It sounds harder than it really is). Anyway, take the knob off, pop the trim ring and tighten the screws.
Hope that this has helped, --W/D--

How do i rekey the deadbolt to fit the doorknob key?


You would need to take it to a lock smith or an ace hardware. also bring one of the doorknobs so they can key it alike. Unfortunately, keying locks is not something that you can do without advanced equipment and experience.

Schlage deadbolt will not unlock even with the use of a key?


it sounds as though the linkage that pulls the deadbolt back has disengaged... if you undo the screws from the inside of the door and remove the manual knob there will be 2 more screws holding the key lock to the door. A thin flat bar is attached to the key lock that goes through the deadbolt and into the manual knob. This bar turns with the key, sliding the bolt on its track to lock and unlock the door. Once the lock is apart check the key in the lock to see if the bar turns when the key does. then see if there is anything that may be obstructing the deadbolt from sliding. The locks are pretty indestructible so if there is a problem it may have been from the install... perhaps the door is to wide for the lock to engage properly and the lock worked loose in the 6 months that it worked.
