Things you’ll need: Install a Door Knob
- New door knob and screws
- drill or screwdriver
- The door may already have a mortise for a face plate on the latch. If it does, use the 3/4″ screws to secure the latch to the door. Also, be sure to adjust the latch for the back-set depth.
- Interior doors are normally 2-3/8″ and exterior doors are normally 2-3/4″ depth. Check the instructions that came with the knob on how to adjust the back-set size. Most knobs now have adjustable back-set to accommodate both sizes.
If it fits snugly, then move the latch all the way forward to the front of the hole. Minor adjustment may need to be made as you check the fit.
