Home Improvement Project: Replacing door hardware

Having a secure lock on all of your doors is extremely important. Your door hardware should be in good working order and protecting you and your family at all times. A very simple home improvement project is to replace your door hardware with new and more secure fixtures.

The only tool you will need for this project is a screwdriver, but before you remove your old hardware, pick out a new set at your local home improvement store like Lowes or Home Depot. Make sure you pick a lock or set of locks that will easily replace the old set. Keep in mind which ones need deadbolts and which ones need key locking mechanisms.

Once you have your new door hardware in hand, go ahead and unscrew the existing hardware. The screws should be located on the inside and in the door jam.

Installation is so easy. All you have to do is screw in the new hardware, just like your old locks were screwed in.

Once you have it up and running, you will not only have a nicer looking set of hardware, but you will have a better sense of home security than ever before.

Those steps are very useful. It will be good if you still have time to do it yourself. Some people are too busy with work that's why they just purchase door hardware and accessories online and leave the installation to the experts.
