We always use the door knob or handle to open or close a door. It is no wonder that we eventually experience problems including stuck or rusted door knobs and handles. When this happens, it is a good indication that you need to change your door lock. You can engage door repair services like the ones by Everyworks Singapore as we offer all types of door repair handyman services. However, you can also change or remove your door knobs yourself if you have the necessary knowledge and skills to do so.


Common Door Knob Issues


Common door knob problems often faced by homeowners include:

  1. A seemingly stuck or difficult to move latch.
  2. A loose door knob.
  3. Not being able to close the door as it is not latching properly. When this happens, you will need to replace your old door knob.

Replacing door knobs may seem like an easy task, but it can actually be overwhelming for someone who has little experience in doing so. Fortunately, you can also hire a recommended handyman to have your door knob quickly fixed instead. This is also one of the reasons why handymen are so handy.


How to Determine if Your Door Knob Needs to be Changed or Repaired


Similar to common door lock problems, when you are experiencing problems with your door knobs, you can either fix or replace them. To determine the best option, you will first have to identify the root of the problem. A loose door knob can be easily fixed by tightening it with a screwdriver. However, a stuck door knob or one that is not latching properly will require a replacement.


How to Remove or Replace Your Door Knob?

As mentioned above, there are two solutions for a faulty door knob which do not require the help of a professional handyman. You can either change or remove the door knob. Listed below are three steps on how you can change your door knob yourself.


Detach the Latch Plate

Unscrew the latch plate with a screwdriver.

Replace the Latch Plate

Insert the new latch plate on the inside edge of the door and secure it with screws.


Attach the New Door Knob and Spindle


The exterior of a new door knob comes with a long spindle. When replacing your old one, you will need to put the long spindle through this latch. Do not forget to use a plate to secure it. Once you have done so, you have finished changing your old door knob.

Alternatively, you can also contact Everyworks Singapore for a one-stop, comprehensive installation of door lock and door knob repair services.
