I have a set of 1940s-era door hardware that seems to be broken so I'd like to remove it from the door. I have removed the knobs and latch but the cam is too big to fit through the holes on either side of the door:
- side 1:
- side 2:
Inside the hole for the latch is this metal piece:
that connects to the latch which is what is making it too wide to fit through the sides of the door. I cannot see any buttons or ways to detach this piece - any ideas how I can get this hardware out of my door? Thanks!
