Step # 1: Replacing A Doorknob
When Replacing a Doorknob start with removing the fasteners keeping the doorknob in position. The actual fasteners will likely be on the indoor side.
That should result in the doorknob dropping free. Both sides of the doorknob will fall away…This will also expose the interior mechanism of the door latch…
Step # 2: Remove the Door Latch
Remove the screws either with a regular hand screw diver or with a power drill, as shown in the image…You will be able to pull the latch out of the slot.
Step # 3: Installation of the Brand New Door Latch and the Door Handle
Depending on your door, you might need to change the actual back set, the space between your fringe of the door and also the middle in the doorknob. Many doorknobs may allow for various back sets.
Reverse the removing method to install the new doorknob. Typically the actual openings for that brand-new doorknob may suit your current holes. Make sure to orient the new striker plate (on the door jamb) in the right direction to ensure the door can shut effectively.
Install the new latch and hand tighten the screws first, establishing the anchoring screws by hand 1st after which tightening them with an electrical drill.
Arrange your doorknobs in position, also tighten the anchoring screws by hand.
You can snug them with either a hand screw driver or power drill…keep in mind, never over-tighten the anchoring screws as you may hinder your doorknob.
Test the brand new door handle to make certain doorknob turns, as well as locks correctly.
