How To Install A Deadbolt Lock – D.I.Y. At Bunnings


James: I’m gonna show you how to install a
deadlatch. The tools and materials you’ll need are the
deadlatch and instructions, your hammer, screwdriver, drill bits, a chisel, a Stanley knife, a hole
saw, your combo square, pencil, your drill drivers, pliers, safety gear, tape measure
and your masking tape. So, let’s get started. The first step we need to do, is to measure
out where we’re gonna have our deadlatch. Bear in mind you don’t want it to interfere
with your handle. This is a new door, so it doesn’t have the
handle in yet, but I do know where that’s gonna go. So when I measure up I’ll account for that. Mark where your latch is going to go on your
door jam and then transfer across to the door. Square off your marks around the door so you
know where your template goes. It’s always important to follow the instructions
that come with your lock. The instructions for this lock come with a
template, which I’ll be using to mark out where everything goes. Most door latches will come with a double-sided
template, depending on which way your door opens, make sure you choose the right one
for your door. As per my instructions, I’m now gonna drill
four holes, these will be used to attach my latch later on. As you don’t wanna pre-drill through the entire
door, it’s important to mark how deep your screw holes need to go. I’ve marked my drill bit with a piece of tape. It’s important to keep your drill level whilst
drilling these holes. Now drill a pilot hole all the way through
the door, for your cylinder hole. This is going to be used as a pilot for either
your spade bit or your hole saw. Remove your template and drill through for
your cylinder. You can use a hole saw or a spade bit, but
you need to make sure you do it from both sides, otherwise you’ll splinter your door. Don’t forget your safety gear. Cut your cylinder bar to length, to do this
put the unit through the hole and then using your template, mark where you need to make
your cut. Remove the mounting plate from your latch
and fix it to your door. Make sure the notch on your mounting plate
lines up with the V and then slide your cylinder lock through. Make sure your key hole’s straight and then
attach with the screws provided. To insert the other screw, we need to place
the key into the cylinder and turn it enough to expose the hole. Now, refit the latch to the mounting plate. Now we need to check out for our striker plate. Position the striker plate on your door lock,
close the door and mark out where you need to make the check out. Transfer these marks around your door jam
as this striker plate is tapered. Then trace range your striker plate to check
out. Make sure you also mark out for your depth. Use a hammer and chisel to check it out, don’t
forget your safety gear. We now need to attach our door frame strengthener,
we’re doing this using the template provided. Now drill it in, using the extra long strews
provided, which gives it additional strength. Place your striker plate over the top, pre-drill
and screw into place. We’ve substituted the screws you’d attach
your striker plate with for slightly shorter ones to suit our circumstances. Test the lock by going outside and making
sure you can unlock it with your key. And that’s how you install a deadlatch. Chorus: Bunnings Warehouse.
