How to install the 40-043 Sears Handle Set

  1. Click here to view and print the 40-043 dead bolt latch template.

  2. Fold the template on the dotted line.

  3. With the door in the closed position place the fold of the template on the inside of the door against the wood stop or metal z-bar (place at a height that it will miss the main door knob). Spot the holes using the template.

  4. Drill (3) 5/16" holes straight through the door.

  5. Place the handle assembly into the holes of the door. Lining up the plunger with the hole in the bottom of the latch, place the inside assembly in the door and mount it with the (2) included screws.

  6. Check the handle latch to be sure that it operates freely.

  7. Line up and place the strike with the dead bolt and latch. The striker should be flush with the z-bar. If the strike is too low, use shims to build up to the correct height. Mount the striker with the (2) included screws.
