How to Install a Deadbolt: Door Handle Install Part 2/2

"What we have here is an entry-level set and a deadbolt. We have the lever set with a thumb turn and lock. This will obviously go on the outside, this will go on the inside, and locking deadbolt inside and outside. Single-sided so it only takes a key on one side. And we're going to install it in this practice door.

OK, so now we're going to install the deadbolt. Most of them are indicated with a stamp on it telling it which side goes up so that the actuator aligns with where the tail piece is from the deadbolt. This one tells us this side is up. So we'll insert that into the opening. We can see that centered. Depending upon how deep the hole is in the door a lot of these are adjustable. So if that's an adjustable one and you see this is crowded over a little bit you'll want to expand it. If it hits the wood here then it probably needs to be shortened. This one's already preset for the right size. And of course the locking part goes on the outside.

What we're going to do is we know that when the key is turned we want the deadbolt to come this direction. Typically the top of the key way moves in the direction that you want the bolt to go, so in this is instance we want to turn this tail piece as far toward the unlocked position as we can. This is wider than it is tall or taller than it is wide in either case we know it has to go into the actuator with this orientation. So we'll turn it all the way this way and then just back far enough to come through that slot. And we'll take our thumb turn and we'll align it with that actuator. And install the screws."

Video transcript of the video How to Install a Lever Door Handle: Part 1/2:

"What we have here is an entry-level set and a deadbolt. We have the lever set with a thumb turn and lock. This will obviously go on the outside, this will go on the inside and locking deadbolt inside and outside. Single-sided so it only takes a key on one side. And we're going to install it in the practice door.

This is the latch. In this instance we're going to install this as though it's a right-handed door so the door is going to close that way. So this obviously needs to go in this direction so that the door is prevented from opening by this latch on the flat side. So that will go in first. We fasten the latch into the door using the two screws provided.

Now with this half moon shape, in this particular brand, that's going to go inside, this is our lock it lockable side, that's going to go on the outside and this has to match up with the same shape there. And in order to insert that we need to push that slightly inward. Slide it in and then the two fasteners match there.

Then we install the lever. And again, that has a matching half moon on this side to match up with this side and then the little white knob in the center is going to be inserted into this tail piece. And as you can see this is designed with a with a space here that covers the screw hole, so rather than fighting this we're just going to take this off with the provided allen wrench. Take this off for now out of our way. We're going to line this up to where this half moon and that button line up with the tail piece and this actuator here. And now we're going to install the lever and tighten it down with the allen wrench."

Garage Door Slide Lock Installation

Video transcript of the video How to Install a Garage Door Slide Lock:

"Here we have a couple of common style deadbolts for roll up garage doors. They both function essentially the same in that the latch slides through a hole that is in the rail that the garage door rolls up on, and then you can attach a padlock to secure that so that even if someone pulls the emergency release cord or somehow opens or has access to roll up the door, this physically blocks the door from being able to be rolled up.

The difference between these two is one has levers to actuate it and unlock it, and that can be attached to a cable mechanism or a t-handle on the outside of the garage door that's lockable. This one is simply manually operated both directions to engage or disengage the lock.

These holes have been pre-drilled and I'm also confirming that there's enough room for the bolt to pass through the rail and that there's enough room for the deadbolt to go on. So now we're just going to fasten this in place. Confirm that it works and then we're going to attach an ABUS padlock 83 series that's rekeyable, to a Schlage in this instance, or a Kwikset so that the padlock matches the house key.

Now that's secure. So even if the lock is bypassed or the garage door opener is decoded, this physically prevents the door from being able to roll up. The other feature of this is if someone gains entry to the home by breaking a window or compromising another door, this prevents them from being able to roll up the garage door and haul big stuff out. They have to exit the home the same way they came in."
