At times, locks may fail or break, and replacing them quickly and correctly is crucial to safeguard your home. The process of installing a lock starts by removing the knob or handle, along with the rose and spindle, which is the rod that connects the lock on one side of the door to the other lock on the opposite side. To replace the bolt, the bolt guard or housing is unscrewed, and the bolt is removed. The holes may need to be adjusted, depending on the difference between the new or desired lock. Reassembling the lock is a cautious reversal of the disassembly process, with special attention paid to fitting the internal mechanisms. Once the new lock is installed, homeowners can rest easy knowing that their locks will open and close as desired, keeping the building and its residents safe.
