Locksmithing/french door inner hardware removal

Hello Steve,

Thanks for writing. With most Peachtree french doors, it will be necessary to take the door off the hinges and lay it flat in order to remove all of the hardware. There is a hole on top to allow you to remove the rods, latches and lock body. Depending on the age of the door, it may or may not be under warranty. If it is, then have a Peachtree tech come out and save yourself the headache. Below is the Peachtree website allowing you to contact them directly.

Thanks for writing.
