I recently bought a house that has an interior closet with a Schlage “key-in-knob” lock on it, but the previous owners didn’t have a key. The door was not locked, so I’ve been able to remove the knob from the door, but I’m curious if there are any tricks for repinning the lock short of picking it. There are two small holes that I think are for the catches you’d normally use to disassemble the knob, but it doesn’t look like there’s anything to press (which makes sense, since the lock is locked).
Is there a way to get the knob apart, or do I need to either pick or replace it?
Thanks in advance for your help!
