Forum Title: need help removing round door latch
i've tried searching for help with replacing an old door knob online but so far, none address my particular knob. the knobs themselves are out. my problem is with the latch: it just has a flat ring around it and there aren't any screws to remove. at least, none visible to me. here's a picture: not a terribly good picture but i hope clear enough. anyone seen these before? any ideas? thanks!!

If it leaks out, then air can leak in. That would cause fogging of the window, which would be covered under warranty. Most companies have at least 10 yr warrantys on the glass seal, many are 20 yrs, and some even have lifetime. Of course they count on you not living there that long, or they may not be in business. The argon is beneficial in some environments (extreme heat or cold air temps IIRC), but I won't try and say that for sure. I always wondered, how we could be sure it was actually there in the first place...lol.

Yip -- it's just held in place by the knob. Like Bill62 said, a screw driver and a hammer will knock it out of the latch side of the door. You'll need a chisel or a router to mortise in the new latch, as it will have a plate about an inch wide and a bit over 2 tall that needs to be recessed into the door frame.

thanks for the quick response, you guys! so i can't replace it with just any door knob? if i have to get the same kind, do you know what it's called?
