Removing barrel from lane door knob lock

Postby minifhncc » Sat Jun 11, 2011 12:05 pm

Hello,

I'm in Australia and I'm having difficulty removing the lane lock barrel/cylinder from a lane door knob. I can get the door knob out and I can see the barrel in there but I just can't seem to be able to take it out.

Maybe I need to remove something but everything seems 'fixed' on the door knob that has been removed... Could someone please help?

Thanks

Does anyone know?

Even for any door knob, could someone tell me how one can remove the cylinder from the knob?

Thanks

Please have some patience, we're not all standing by to take your questions ;-)

Some of us are busy having sex with our wives, some of us are at work, and some people are playing Call of Duty.

Can you post a photo of how far along you are in taking the knobset apart?

Does it look like this one? http://www.itwproline.com.au/Lane-Knob- ... fault.aspx

Thanks,

Yeah okay sorry. I understand everyone's busy but I just dont want this topic to 'die'. Because I spend hours searching on google and I still havent found a solution.

And yes it does look like that lock. How would I go about re keying it? I would've thought that I would need to take the cylinder out and then follow the usual rekeying process (ie. insert follow plug etc) but I can't seem to take the cylinder out :(

Thanks again!

Also, I haven't taken it apart very much. The furthest I've gotten to is taking the knob out (by pressing through the hole). I can't figure out how to take the cylinder out from the knob...

Thanks again

Hello again,

Sorry for so many replies. But you can't edit on this forum...

That lock in the picture is a 6 pin lock (description says) but mine is a 5 pin. But the design looks similar. I thought this may help :)

your knob may have a plate tightly pressed into the back which can be popped off making a much larger hole in the back for the cylinder to be removed, or it is possible that the bible on your cylinder has T pins and a spring cap that can be compressed allowing the cylinder to be pushed out of the back of the knob. is the hole on the back of the knob a perfect circle or does it have a flat part on one side?

Look at page 7 of this Schlage rekeying manual and see if yours will do the same: http://consumer.schlage.com/Project%20D ... 13-325.pdf

Page 18 shows how to undo a cover on the back of the knob: http://consumer.schlage.com/Project%20D ... 13-325.pdf

good luck, hope someone else from down under can chime in and help you later today,

Hello,

Thanks a lot for help. You have no idea how much I appreciate it.

Basically, when you pop the handle off the door (using a pin or something sharp) there is a circular hole through which you can see the cylinder.

The hole just contains the cylinder. If it was a few millimetres larger then the cylinder would easily fall out.

Anyway, those pdfs do look similar to my lock. Thank you SO MUCH for them! Maybe my alignment is just wrong... But I've tried so hard to try and get the cylinder out. I might try again.

But I would seriously love some advice from people who have worked with these Lane locks before so that I have some reassurance of the right thing to do.

Thanks again

In Oz, Lane uses imported copies of the Schlage/Boyd "F"Series el cheapo garbage.

As squelchy said, you need to hold the cylinder toward the bottom of the hole, while pressing from outside slowly. The top springy bible retainer is sloped on one end and will move down as you push the cylinder through.

Thank you SO much for your reply. I shall try it soon.

Also, do you know what size pins I would need to rekey the lock? I would've assumed .005 but I would like to double check.

Thanks again

that should be fine. I think Lab pins for Schlage depths are .065-.300 and are all green.
