How to Install a Stanley Door Lock?

The installation of a door lock can be a relatively simple process. However, it is necessary to take into account the size, shape and position of the door. If you are installing a door lock that has been previously installed, you may need to enlarge the mortise of the door to accommodate the new latch. To do this, you will need to measure the diameter of the existing holes. This is usually about 2 1/8 inches in diameter. After obtaining this information, you will need to remove the old strike plate from the door.

You will also need to determine the thickness of the door. In most cases, modern locksets require a minimum of 1 3/8 inches in thickness. But, if you are installing a door lock on an older, thicker door, you may need to purchase a door reinforcer to help fix the thickness issue. 

Once you have determined the diameter of the holes, you can begin the actual installation. For most door locks, the first step involves removing the old lockset. As you do so, you can measure the diameter of the bolt opening. Depending on the brand and model, you will likely receive a set of screws to attach the new lockset. Use a screwdriver to hand-thread the screws and then tighten them into place. 

Next, you will need to remove the old latch from the door. It will be secured to the door with two screws on the top and bottom of the latch. These screws can be hidden if you are installing a door knob. A keyed-entry knob, or privacy knob, can be installed without drilling. 

Installing a new door lock will allow you to increase the security of your home. Modern locksets are available in a range of styles, colors and finishes. Some of these designs include EasyPass(tm), a convenient access feature that allows you to unlock your door without using a lever.
