I need to replace my bedroom door knob with a new one.
I went to the hardware store and bought a Kwikset that claimed to fit
all doors. It probably does if you know what you are doing.
The "insides" of the existing knob appear to be in the door for keeps.
I can't remove it. I can remove both knobs from both sides of the door,
but the insides -- I guess the "latch" appears to have been factory
installed or something. Where it comes through the edge of the door it
is round with no screws to hold it in the door.
So, since I can't remove the insides, I thought I would just leave them
and install the new knobs. But the insides of the old are square and
the new Kwikset is curved. Asked the hardware people and they said I
would have to pound out the old insides, but that appears impossible.
Here's a web site with a pix of a similar set to what I have:
So, any suggestions?
