Hello,

Really could use some help here ! When opening the front door to my house one day the knob just came off in my hand. There does not seem to be a way to re-attach it to the shaft if came off of. The door hardware does not contain a lock, there is a seperate dead bolt on the door. Please help !

If you can't replace it with a new doorknob, get a new door. Sorry, that's all I know about it.

Carmineventura - hi, did the door knob contain/use any type of latch at all (even one without a lock in it)? Or, was it strictly a door knob that didn't require any twisting/turning to open the door once the deadbolt was opened? If there was no latch in it, it sounds like a passage set was used and they're not made to withstand the use a front door would give it.

Can you look down inside the knob and see if part of the shaft is still in there? If it broke off the shaft, about all you can do is replace the door knob set with a new set. I wish I had a better answer for you...I'd recommend taking the old knob set with you to ensure it was correct for your application (front/entrance door use). Otherwise, it'll be a matter of time before a new one breaks as well. Good luck! Jim D/West Point, VA
