How to remove the spherical door lock
First of all, find a small hole on the inner side lock of the door. This is the most critical step for removal. Use a flat-head screwdriver or thin iron wire to insert it into the small hole. This makes it easy to remove the door knob on the inner side.
The next step is to remove the decorative ring of the spherical door lock, because the decorative ring is fixed by live wire, so you can remove the decorative ring by just twisting it a few times.
After the decorative ring is unscrewed, you can see the two fixed screws, then use a screwdriver to loosen the screws, and then gently pull out the spherical door lock from the outside.
In the end, only the bolt on the side of the door is left, and you can easily remove it by loosening the screw. The spherical door lock is now disassembled.
When changing the door lock, we should buy a suitable lock according to the size of the door hole, so as to avoid the situation that it cannot be installed.
When choosing a lock, pay attention to whether the door lock and the opening method of the door are the same.
You can also see whether the lock is opened smoothly. If the opening sound is crisp, the lock is generally made of stainless steel.
