Now take out the strike plate on the door facing by simply removing the 2 anchoring screws which have been retaining it in position. Now you are all set to begin your installation; in the event you purchased an adjustable door knob be sure it is arranged on the correct position. Youve got to install the latch to start off; put it through the small hole confirming it doesnt bind up and screw it firmly into place. Simply somewhat snug the anchoring screws this can let you shift it around slightly to allow the knob assembly to operate a bit more smoothly youll be able to tighten all of them later.
Look at the base of the knob close to the door itself and you will see a small hole with a little separation inside of it. Take a key like piece of metal that is included in the new doorknob set and put it in the small hole prying it open. Pull the door knob out as you pry the hole until it comes out completely. You will have removed the decorative part of the mechanism and the operative part will be exposed. Against the door itself you will see a round piece of metal which is held in place by two large screws remove these screws all the way.
If the door opens outwards the flat side should look outwards too if it opens to the inside the flat side should look inwards. Now slip in the cylinder through the door knob hole while holding the opening and closing mechanism pushed in so that it fits into the space provided for it in the door knob cylinder. Find the two large screws and the metal cover that go on the inside and screw it in place. Make sure it is tight but not overly tight. Test this by tuning the outside knob the opening and closing mechanism should retract without resistance.
