I’m trying to remove my doors existing deadbolt thumbturn. All the advice I’ve read online says there should be realease screws or pins. I’ve looked very carefullly and can find neither. This house was built in1985 (I moved in a year ago) but the deadbolt may be more recent. I don’t know what brand the deadbolt is but the door handle model VCR. I’d guess the deadbolt could be from the same manufacturer. I’m not sure what else to try aside from grabbing a hammer or calling a locksmith. Any advice would be appreciated.
