Welcome back to SILVER EAGLE LOCKSMITH Las Vegas
YouTube Channel. in this video today
We're going to show you how to drill a
Hole for a Deadbolt Lock for: wooden,
fiber glass or metal door.
don't go anywhere!
ok guys, so in today's tools to install a
New Deadbolt you will need for safety
Dust Mask, Safety Glasses - very
important! and other tools you'll need a
hammer, tape measure
you need a kit to install the strike plate
a Chizel 3/4", and 1"
like to use this kit that
being sold on the hardware store
it's going to save you a lot of time and
money if you want to do it with that kit
trust me I've been doing it for years.
you will need a actual drill a driver
and 1/8" drill bit.
ok the very first thing you want to
check when you buy new deadbolt is the
manufacturer requirements. the second
thing you want to check the door
thickness, either way it's 1-3/8"
to 1-3/4" and where
you want the lock to be placed. usually
It's anywhere between 6 to maximum 12 inches
above the door handle. usually and that's
the standard is 6 inch so i always
like to measure the center of the latch
and then just mark a hole on where the
lock should be placed. so it's usually
right here. ok before you installing
the template kit you should know which
installation you're going to make either
way it's 2-3/8" or you can change it
to be 2-3/4" most
residential doors are 2-3/8" and
just put it on and tight as much as you
can. before you start drilling you want
to mark the center of the hole you can
use a pencil or just is any tool, sharp
tool it's about the center. now we're
going to start the actual drilling so
you want to start from the center and
drill slowly make sure you use a safety
glass and a dust mask! because it's going
to be very dusty.
ok now we're going to go from the other
side because we don't want to go all the
way in, because it might crack the wood!
that's the other side of it, so you just
go like that.
the next step is drilling the door edge for the deadbolt with the
1 inch hole saw
ok so you already marked the center of
it you just go like that.
now in this step and we going to mark the hole
for the strike plate. now when we shut
the door we going to mark with a pencil
or pen a half moon from one side and
repeat the same thing from the other side
this is how it's going to look like
after you market with a pencil. you want
to mark the middle of it as well
the center and using the 1" hole
saw for the deadbolt, just like this
ok now we going to use this template kit
for the strike depending on the door
thickness for 1-3/4" or 1-3/8" you can change the
sizing with this a plate here so you put
it on. and just so you know guys you can
do it without this tool if you want and
let me show you if you want to do it the
other way. the other way is actually put
the deadbolt and just use a pencil to
mark where it is.
ok and if you choose to do the actual door
strike without that tool you have to the
chisel, with this tool you just put it on
just use the hammer
ok, now we're going to chisel the actual
wood here, you want to do it slowly take
the time with that because you want to
make it looks cosmetically nice
ok this is how it looks when it's done
make sure when you put the deadbolt it's
got to be flat to the actual door.
you mark the holes and you're going to use
the 1/8" drill bit to drill the 2 holes
and now we're going to drill the 2 holes.
installing the 2 screws.
now we're going to install the lock, 2 screws
always recommend to use a better
strike plate then what is usually
provided with standard locks you can
watch my other videos talking about
strike plate as well. we're going to use
a pencil to mark the strike
we're going to use the chisel to shave
it a little bit.
now we done with the chisel and going
still the screws, second one. we are
done. ok the very last thing you
want to make sure that it actually
locking without any interruption. that's it!
