Questions and Answers

Question I have a 50-yr old steel door from which I removed the knobs, latch and insides. Had to saw off the knobs to remove all. Will your MaxGrade Watson knob set replace it? I can send pictures.

Question How does this product unlock from the outside in the privacy version. Can any flathead screwdriver open this lock in the event of an emergency ? Thanks, John

Question You'd need something smaller than a flat head screwdriver. Usually a hair pin or paper clip will do the trick. Answer provided by:  Jake (7/26/2018)
