Step Three:

Using a pencil make all eight holes around the rose plates, these markings are where the included screws will be attached.


Step 4:

Remove door knobs and use your power drill and small drill bit, and proceed to make pilot holes on the markings being careful not to go too deep into the wood (we recommend drilling shallow holes which just allow the tip of the wood screws to latch onto).


Step 5:

Reattach your door knobs back onto the mortice bar and begin to attach the door knobs with the included coloured wood screws, we would recommend using a screwdriver here to avoid damaging the heads of the screws.

Attaching Beehive Door Knobs

Once the knobs are firmly attached check to see if they work as intended.
