comment How can I remove a lockset latch assembly that's stuck latched?
@Mazura the way that that makes it harder is by forcing you to use a different method...

It is the kind of latch with the little extra half-cylinder latch bit that stops the credit card trick from working.

The latch is not binding against the strike. It's rather free, with a good 2-3mm of wiggle on the door (into the weatherstripping on the other side of the doorjamb). I am aware that only the small bits inside the top right and bottom right corners of the (| opening are supposed to move to the right to unlatch it.

I actually bought these, but was unhappily surprised at the size. The posts actually hold the wire about three inches out from the wall. I was hoping it would be more like half an inch.

comment How can I seal air leaks and otherwise winterize, as a renter?
the foam gaskets aren't as airtight as I'd like. And I'm hoping for something to do to the windows before I put plastic over them.
