It's actually quite simple, all you need is a drill and the right size or drill bit.
Choose a drill bit a about the size of the hole required, if you are not sure, choose a smaller size, it's easier to make a hole bigger.

Take apart the old knobs, from the inside of the cupboard, use the drill make the old holes bigger.

Attach the new knobs.

Congratulations, you did it :-)

Why won't my hinged cupboard door stay closed?

Depends on type of hinge, If it swings back open after you closed it then either the cupboard is not level (old style hinge)...
Or the spring inside hinge is bad/broken and not holding it closed. If the door opens back just a bit (1/2 inch or so) see if hinge has adjustable screws.

How to put the striker from a door knob kit back together

i can help you with that...just follow this steps...
1.Remove the old doorknob by taking out the screws that hold it in. You will have to remove the striker separately by removing the screws that hold the strike plate in place on the outside edge of the door. Slide the striker out.
Take the new doorknob, striker, and strike plate out of the packaging and look for the directions. (Most doorknobs are installed in the same way, but there are always exceptions.)

Slide the striker bar into the hole. Insert the screws into the striker plate and tighten.

ake the two halves of the doorknob, and place the one with the male end through the hole in the striker bar. Place the female side of the doorknob on the other side of the door and make sure that it lines up with the male end. Slide the two together. Screw the knob together using the two long screws that came with the doorknob. Make sure that the screws are tight. Make sure that you have the lock facing the right direction. You want the locking mechanism on the inside of the house or room.

Test your work before you shut the door. Make sure that both sides of the door knob turn and the striker bar goes back and forth.

Hello all fix ya experts i have a falcon door lock this jammed and i need to know how to disassemble this lock so i can put on a new one thanks very much kim

Hello there:
the first thing that you need to do is use your tool if you have it and on the door knob look for a flat silver slot and press in on it and the door know will come off.
Next use the pointed tip and look at the plate that covers the door hole and you will see a small hole put the point in the hole and just like a wrench turn it to the left to loosen it just like a nut and it will loosen up now just spin it off ond there will be a plate under neath this top plate so take this off.
next you will be able to push the know out and this will release the lock assembly
Now you are done this is a very easy door knob to work on ok?
just replace the new door knob following the instructions ok?
I really hope that this has helped you out ok
best regards michael

Too long backset on new Door Knob for older home's door

You can get a variety of backsets at a GOOD door/ window company.
You may also want to look closely at the lock bolt again, because some of them come with a backset adjuster. Some of the Schlage and Kwiksets will allow you to twist the barrel and change the backset...

Stuck Door Knob with No Access!

I agree with your Hacksaw method. Very easy and very fast. You are going to want to replace the knob anyway so this does not happen again. Just Hacksaw that knob as close to the door as you can without damaging the door. From there you are on your way to access to the parts of the lock. Now you can replace that knob and never have this trouble again!!!! One less headache in Life......Hope this helps you ........Joe
