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.
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.

We just have to have patience in doing our job with concentration. Also you need to consider the type of knobs because knobs are not the same for all types of doors. Exterior doors have different properties than interior ones. Their installation or replacement is quite different as well. To remove exterior knobs we have to pull out some crucial parts like locks and screws. Exterior doors are exposed to the outside which makes them compatible to unwanted handling by strangers. To save our house from this we need to add a locking system on exterior knobs.
