Hi. I’m Bob Schmidt. Welcome to Home Remodel Workshop. Today, what we’re going to cover is, you come home to do that simple little project. All you got to do is replace that doorknob or that deadbolt, the white ones have changed. You take it off and you find out that the new doorknob or lockset is not fitting the smaller hole in your door for the older model lock.
We’re going to be drilling a larger hole over top of the smaller hole. It’s easier than you think as long as you have the right techniques. Let’s get to work.
So the tools that we’re going to need for doing this project are a couple of clamps, they can be of any type or style as long as they open wide enough. A square, it could be a framing square or a pocket square, any type of square. A standard drill. A 2-inch and an 8-inch boring bit for a door board, and a couple of pieces of scrap wood. As long as they have a couple of straight edges on it, that’s all you’ll need.
Here, we have 1 7/8 inch doorknob hole. A standard doorknob requires two and an eight. Mark the center of the hole on the side of the door. Mark your backset on a scrap piece of plywood. The backset is how far the center of the doorknob needs to be away from the edge of the door, in this case 2 3-8.
Drill the 2 1/8 inch hole through the marked piece of wood. Take the board with the hole and align with the mark on the center of the side of the door. Clamp the boards on the front and back of the door being sure to keep the straight edge of the drill board in line with the edge of the door. As you can see, there are small amounts around the edge that need to be drilled after it is securely clamped, take the 2 1/8 boring bit and drill through the predrilled hole in the alignment board. Stop drilling when the pilot bit projects through the backboard. Remove the bit and finish drilling from the back side of the door. Remove the clamps and guide boards. Now, you have a new 2 1/8 inch hole where the old 1 1/7 inch hole existed.
So there you go. Now, you’re back to just putting a standard lockset in a standard sized hole. Have a great day.
