Step 4 : Install the Doorknob
Insert the spindle into one of the doorknobs and tighten the setscrew. Some locksets have predrilled holes on one end of the spindle which allow you to adjust the spindle to fit either 1 3/8-in. or 1 3/4-in. thick doors.
Slide the spindle into the latch and then place the other doorknob on the spindle and tighten the setscrews. Test the latch by turning the doorknob; the latch bolt should move easily without binding. If it doesn't, loosen the bolts holding the latch mechanism in place and realign the mechanism.
