I finally got around to replacing the handleset on my front door. The old one worked, but I wanted to install one of slightly better quality. The old one was also pretty well worn.
I had some difficulty in getting the old handle set off of the door. It had bonded to the paint so strongly that I thought someone had actually glued it onto the door. Turns out that it was just really stuck, it came off okay once I got a bit of a lever arm onto it.
You can still see the outline of the old one. I suppose I’ll add “paint the front door” to my list of things which need to get done. 🙂
