I am sure that if you follow these simple instructions and keep an eye on the diagram included with your new door knob you will have no problems you might even enjoy yourself doing some handyman work. My name is Cesar Batres. Through life I have had to learn how to do many things by myself instead of having someone do them for me. After many years of learning and doing I can say that I have saved a lot of money in the process and have also learned all kinds of useful things it is my desire to share these with you in simple easy to follow instructions.
Now you have everything all set to slide the door knob assembly into position place the part in first which receives the screws the spindle will have to go all the way through the latching assembly and simply fit the opening properly. When you are grasping it just gently spin the knob forwards and backwards this allows you realize that you already have it in properly. Now place the additional knob set up directly into place and screw it into place again; simply sung the screws and ensure the door knob moves freely.
As time went on styles of knobs came and went and it was only in more modern times that the door knobs we used seemed to become a bit more boring and just looked at as things that are meant to open a door. Its possible the boring state of todays door knobs is what caused many hardware manufacturers to go back in time and start lines of pieces that are reproductions of those fascinating antique door knobs. Those reproductions have become a major income for those companies as people continually look for new ways to dress up their home.
The best way to choose which type your door needs would be to measure from the sharp edge of your door to the actual center of your door knob. If you buy a brand new door knob numerous door knob sets are variable that will fit either size door. To remove the current door knob use the appropriate kind of screwdriver and take the two main screws loose altogether. Pull on the knobs coming from each direction and so the knob will come apart on each side. To take out the latch take out the 2 anchoring screws on the door edge and the face plate now the latching mechanism should pull out.
