Push in with the included pushpin tool to release the handle. You can also use a paperclip as a pushpin. Pull the handle apart.

Step 2 Turn the handle to align the pin hole for the exterior handle. Push in with the included pushpin tool to release the handle. Pull the handle apart.


Step 3 Install the latch and strike plate if necessary.


Step 4 Reverse the handle bases to align with the new handle configuration. If you do not reverse the handle base the handle will not lock into place when you reverse the handle.


Step 5 Install the interior and exterior handles in the preferred configuration. Carefully aligning the pin holes on the base with the pin holes on the handles. Push firmly to lock handles in place. A clicking sound will confirm the connection.


Step 6 Test the lock and latch.
