- Firstly, gather the necessary tools, including a drill, screwdriver, measuring tape, and pencil.
- Secondly, remove the old door knob and prepare the door by measuring and marking the appropriate holes.
- Thirdly, attach the latch plate and strike plate to the door jamb, and then attach the lever and rosette to the door. Finally, test the knob to ensure it is functioning properly and securely.
