I'm trying to remove a 16 yr. old Titan Dead Bolt. I have it disassembled but cannot get it out of the door. There is no strike plate on the door that I can remove. There is only a brass ring that the bolt goes through on the door side. How do I get the old mechanism out?

  • This is one of those questions where a picture can help immensely.

If I understand correctly, it is probably just a pressure fit. You should be able to pry it so it comes straight out the edge of the door from where the cylinder sits. This picture is just of a normal doorknob, but same principle applies.

  • That's what it looks like...thanks so much for your help.

  • Yep, run steel drift pin through, pull both sides towards you, latch pops out. Commented Apr 10, 2014 at 2:11
