normally replacing the doorknob give

very simple matter but the hole in this

older door which used to fit a standard

sized doorknob is no longer the hole

size you need to fit today's standard

sized doorknob in fact you need a larger

hole in order to get a new doorknob to

fit in there so the old standard size

hole was an inch and 3/4 the new

off and bar larger hole so to drill our

off from the jail once you have the door

on a flat surface we're outside if

you're fortunate to have a workshop or

indoor area where you can put your door
