(notice arrow above in picture).
and gently pull out the old latch.
Remember, keep your screwdriver in that bottom hole the whole time
while you are removing those other screws.
It was kinda hard for me to hold the screwdriver and take a picture so
I drew a line to show you how the screwdriver would be inserted.
If you don’t do this step, well let’s just say the old latch may fall
down inside the door frame where it will remain forever.
Yep, I’m speaking from experience here!
Notice that I don’t have a picture of the old broken latch, this would be why. 🙂
Remember, keep that screwdriver inside the side of the door.
You don’t want to loose your new latch!
Place your screws back in and all that’s left is to put the handle back on.
Putting the handle back on is a no brainer right?
Well, I put mine back on and then tried to close the door…
Apparently putting it on backwards doesn’t work! (Nice one, Laura.)
I unscrewed the handle and tried again.
This time success!!!
I cleaned the door up and now it officially locks like it should!
So, next time that lock breaks…you can fix it right? Sure you can.
How’s your honey-do list?
