How do I get this small knob back on the door?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I just bought a house and this piece keeps falling off the front door lock. It is the knob you turn on the inside to lock it. It has some little piece that looks like it can be screwd down to tighten up the fit, but I don't know what to use to do that. Can someone please take a look at the attachment?

Allen Wrench.

It has a "hex" shape to it. You can buy a complete set of Allen Wrenches at any home center.:)

They come in many sizes and different styles, here's what they look like:

Thanks, you are definitely right, upon closer examination I can see its not just a circle it is like an octagon in the little screw so that needs an allen wrench for sure!

Except it is a hexagon.

Octagon: eight sides.
Hexagon: six sides.

I found a small bit to go on my screwdriver that got the job done, I had to use it with my fingers because it was super hard to get it inbetween the knob and the door. Thanks!
