2. Loosen Grub Screw

You will notice that your door knobs are fixed to the mortice bar. In order for the knobs to be fitted to your door, you will need to remove one of them. Using the Allen key provided, place it into the grub screw hole in the neck of the door knob and loosen the grub screw.

Tip: To prevent misplacing the grub screw, we advise loosening it enough for the door knob to be removed from the mortice bar, but not to take the grub screw out entirely.
