A few months ago on a Thursday night the latch on our front door handle broke as I was coming home. This became an adventure because the handles became decoration only. How do we open the door, get in or out of the house?
Damian and Ash began taking the screws out and trying to remove the handles and latch from the door while it was stuck closed. They worked on it for hours! Damion even tried to take the door off its hinges with no luck.
Friday morning before going to work, Ash was able to break apart the latch mechanism, remove it and reinstall the door handles. Of course the door handles were only there to pull open or closed the door. The dead-bolt has to be locked in order for the door to be closed at all.
Now, what do we do?……….
Last weekend we found a solution. We went to Home Depot and bought a replacement door knob. It was not the same one because ours was discontinued but it is close. Not it is installed and we are happy.
