Trick of the trade:
First, remove the old door hardware.
Depending on your door hardware, you’ll typically find two screws on the interior side of the handle set.
Remove the screws and pull the two sides out from the latch.
Remove the latch screws and pull out the latch and also remove the strike plate on the doorjamb.
You should first install the latch.
Note: The latch can be installed in either direction, make sure it is installed so that the half round part is going to hit the strike plate on the doorjamb.
The latch faceplate should fit flush with the door edge.
If the plate doesn’t fit flush, use a chisel and hammer to enlarge the recess.
Select the appropriate faceplate, insert the latch into the existing hole, and secure it with two screws
Insert the interior side of the handle set through the latch mechanism. Then install the exterior side over the top, aligning the screw holes. Secure with the two screws.
Note: Install the first screw loosely to make sure the second screw is properly aligned before tightening.
Install the strike plate in the doorjamb with two screws. If you need use a chisel to enlarge the recess as necessary for a proper flush fit.
I hope this instruction was useful for you.
