Deadbolt locks can be installed on their own, or they can be added to doors that already have latch bolt locks. They are meant to make doors more secure. Installing a deadbolt will make use of specific tools. This method is the same for both thumb turn deadbolts and double cylinder deadbolts. The most important aspect of this process is making sure that the hole is properly drilled into the door. If it is not done the right way, the door might splinter and it will be damaged. To properly saw through the hole, make sure that you have outlined your starting points and marked them so you have a guide to follow. Proceed to drill through one side of the door, and only drill half way through. Next, begin drilling on the opposite side, and drill all the way through to the section that was sawed off first. This makes it easier for the whole to be sawed out. If you make the mistake of sawing through only one side, you run a risk of destroying the door in the process.

The next step involves using the drill equipped with the spade bit to drill a hole through the edge of the door, so that the latch can be fitted into it. Then, clean them out and chisel the edges so that they line up with the shape and style of the lock. The latch is then inserted through the edge of the door and screwed in. Before the casing of the lock is placed over the lock and the tailpiece is placed through the latch, it is best to make sure that the bolt can be extended and retracted.

Next up, drill a hole into the doorframe so that the strike plate can be placed upon it. Once again, make sure that depth of the hole in the doorframe corresponds to the throw of the deadbolt, not the actual length of the deadbolt, but the throw of the deadbolt. Continue to finish setting up the lock on the door. All that is left at this point is to make sure that the tailpiece of the cylinder that sits within the collar is lined up properly inside the lock and that the bolts of the turn knob are also lined up on the opposite side. Essentially you want their internal components to be parallel to each other to make sure that the lock works without a hitch. Once everything is lined up properly and screwed in right, you should be set with your new lock installation.
