I have an old Weslock double-locking deadbolt which is dying a slow death.
After removing the outer mechanism, I attempted to remove the inner mechanism simply by tugging.
But I've pulled on it so hard that I'm afraid it's going to damage the door before it comes out. What can I do to remove it?
Also: I cannot remove the plate on the side of the door either; I could just break it off but I am afraid I won't be able to remove the inner mechanism afterwards and will have destroyed the lock in the process, leaving the house unprotected.
