Why won't my Kwikset 6WAL Front Door Lock open?
I tried to unlock my front door tonight, but my door knob is broken. The lock was replaced about a year ago... after my purse was stolen, and I had to replace the locks :( I removed the door knob and tried slipping a credit card (okay, it was my AAA card, but you know what I mean) as well as a putty knife in between the door and the jamb to try and release the door. No such luck. I also tried sticking various screwdrivers into the lock mechanism to see if it would budge. It moved, but not enough to open the door. I removed the hinges and tried removing the door. No such luck. I have a deadbolt, so I'm not concerned about safety. Also, I have a back door, so I can get out of my house. BUT... I would really like to use my front door :) Any suggestions?
Is this a good question?
