  1. Step 1 Remove the cover plates, or roses, from around your doorknob handles. They are typically not fastened, so you will simply need to slide them away from the door using your hands. If they are on too tightly, try twisting them to loosen them up. Not all lock sets will have these plates, so don't worry if yours does not. They are simply for aesthetics.
  2. Step 2 Unscrew the two screws that are holding the lock in place. These will typically be on the inside of your home. You can dispose of these screws once they are removed as your new lock will come with appropriate fasteners.
  3. Step 3 Grasp one doorknob in each hand and slowly pull them apart until they are removed from the door.
  4. Step 4 You have an option to now remove and replace the backset (the piece that sticks out from the side of the door and catches in the striker plate). Purely optional unless the new lock is a different manufacturer and does not work with the new lock.
  5. Step 5 Remove your lock from the package. Make sure that the side with the keyhole (exterior door) is on the correct side of the door (outside of the home/room). Slide the two knobs together so that the spindles on one half of the lock connect with the holes on the other half. Push them toward the door until they are flush with the face of the door.
  6. Step 6 Install the two set screws that come with the lock. The location for these screws will be marked on the lock package.
  7. Step 7 Push the cover plates (roses) flush to the door to finish the installation. Not all lock sets will have these plates, so don't worry if yours does not. They are simply for aesthetics.
  8. I hope this helps and good luck.
