Installing this handle set is pretty straight forward. You just need to screw it on. When you say the latch can't engage, do you mean you can't lock it from the inside of the house? It's possible that you need to cut the spindle down to the correct length. Normally, the spindle length sticks out approximately one notch past the door on the inside.
