Do you have "how to replace" instructions/video for this item?

I'm afraid we don't have a video for this item, but installation is pretty straight forward. It is simply held together with two screws.

Thanks for the reply. More specifically, I was wondering about two things. First, the orientation of the keeper. Is one way more secure than the other? Unless you advise otherwise, I plan to attach keeper with the hook facing down... so that when I twist the latch/lock on the handle, it will slide up & under the hook on the keeper. Second, how best to accurately line up where the keeper should be attached so that latch/lock on handle slides up & under exactly where it needs to go. Any advice or a video for a similar handle/keeper set?

Oh, you definitely want the keeper to catch the lock hook. Otherwise it won't work. As for where to install it, your best bet is to install the 82-076 handle set and activate the lock hook. Then, use a pencil to mark on the door where the keeper should be installed based on the position of the lock hook.
