How to Install a Door Lock | The Home Depot


So Scott, I see you have a brand new
high-tech electronic door lock there. Yeah I’m excited to try it out. Well,
let’s get the old one out and the new one in. Alright so first we’re gonna
remove the existing single cylinder deadbolt by removing the two screws on
the interior assembly. You can use a flat head or Phillips, whatever type of
screws are in there. Once you get those out, the escutcheon will come off
with it and then we’re gonna move to pull off the exterior assembly. So the
first thing we’re gonna do to install our new deadbolt is insert the latch
through the side of the door, it has the plate connected and insert the screws
with a Phillips screwdriver. The next step is to insert the exterior
assembly through the latch and that center piece is called a torque blade.
You’re gonna put the wires underneath the latch and then you’re gonna test the
deadbolt by rotating the torque blade back and forth. Next we’re gonna mount
the mounting plate. The mounting plate will hold the interior assembly. We’re
gonna feed the wires through the center of the mounting plate, put them off to
the side and then fit the torque blade through the center and then attach with
the screws with your Phillips screwdriver. Alright next we’re going to
connect the wires. Different electronic dead bolts have different
wire connections so you definitely want to check your manufacturer’s
instructions, but for this one we have a connector and then one that you insert
into the back of the interior assembly. Then you’re going to mount the interior
assembly into the mounting bracket and snap it in and test it and then we’re
going to insert the screws to secure it completely. Insert the batteries into the
battery pack and then we’re going to insert the battery pack while holding
the program button. You’re gonna hear a long beep and then we’re gonna press the
program button again and the unit will calibrate itself. Finally, we’re just gonna slide the cover
on to the interior assembly and then you’re done. That was pretty simple. Just like that – now we’re going to go outside, we’ll check the key for a backup just in
case the batteries die or something happens. So give it a check and just like that
works perfectly. Next you’re gonna check with your manufacturer guidelines to see
how to sync your smart phone to the lock and then your smart phone becomes your
key. That’s awesome, thank you so much. Well you’re welcome and thank you for
shopping at Home Depot.
