Locksmithing/Welch Door Knob Removal


PARTI' wrote at 2014-04-28 18:33:06
The knob screws onto a threaded square internal pin like the very old glass knob type mortise locks.  But instead of removing a set screw on the side of the knob shaft, you have to insert an ice pick or wire in the hole in the collar at the base of the knob shaft and release a spring catch which prevents the knob from unscrewing from the shaft.  You can rotate the collar shifting the hole to ensure that the spring catch is pushed back then unscrew the knob while you have the ice pick pushed in the collar.

I will answer all questions in regards to locks and locksmithing. However, PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of our work and my respect for my fellow locksmiths and to the honest public, I will not answer the following types of questions unless you can prove that you are a "Bona Fide" Locksmith: Instructions on how to unlock, bypass, pick or make a key to any type of automobile or lock. I will not discuss methods of safe openings or how to change a safe combo. I will not release the key cuts of any code. If your question is of the above nature and your not a locksmith, my advise to you is to contact a local locksmith in your area.
