How to Replace Door Handles and Change Locks

Sean Buino of Dad’s Handyman Service showed us how to replace door handles and change the locks on our door in under a half hour. Added security for little cost!


  • Lock and deadbolt set
  • Phillips head screwdriver


  1. Disassemble lock
  2. Install latch
  3. Line-up lock pieces and screw together
  4. Disassemble deadbolt
  5. Adjust backset and install latch
  6. Align deadbolt components
  7. Test and tighten screws

This easy project will take 20 minutes and should cost around $25!
