Cannot Tighten My Kwikset Deadbolt Without Screws!
Please help, our Kwikset deadbolt chassis is becoming loose, and I cannot tighten it up! There are no screws, please see the pictures below.
I followed these instructions online,
How to Remove a Deadbolt Lock Without Screws | eHow.com
However, I press the awl directly into the small hole in the shaft of the thumb latch, and it will not release!
Please help! :help:
Here's the key side, and you can see it very loose.
Here's the thumb latch that will not release!
That little hole is not a push hole, it is an allen wrench hole.
Find the right size allen wrench and turn that little screw a couple of turns.
Do not try to remove it completely....Just back it off the shaft and you
will release the thumbturn. After you take that off just pry gently with
a clean putty knife under the decorative plate on the lock.
It will come off and expose the two screws that you seek!
Best of luck!
