Locksmithing/Eversef rekeying


Hi Dan, Thanks for taking the time to answer my question. I am trying to rekeyi en Eversef  entry knob and I can't seem to get the knob to release from the stem. There is a small hole, in which I have pushed various objects into, but still no release. Can you help me?

Do you see the knob retainer through the hole? On some of these you need to turn the knob until you can see/feel the retainer through the poke hole.

You also may need to turn the key 90 degrees for the retainer to depress.

Are you trying to do this on the door or in your hand?

Hope this helps.
