How to Fix a Door Latch




Introduction: How to Fix a Door Latch

Maybe you have some trouble like the picture, when you want to install a door latch because the side of the door have different thickness.
Others maybe use a piece of wood to fix it. But I prefer not to use it for some reason like to find, cut, make sure the wood have correct size, and etc.
Fortunately, I still keep some washers, so why I'm not doing something different.

Step 1: Material Lists

- One set of door latch (including screw)
- Some washers (see picture)
- Screwdriver

Step 2: Insert the Ring

In my case, I need insert 3 pieces of the washers in each side of the latch. You may add or reduce the amount of washers.

Step 3: Insert the Latch, Washers and Screws in Place

Each side have washers

Step 4: Trim Washers Position

While screws, slide the washers slightly to fit into the latch, especially for the washers at the bottom

Step 5: Completed

Now you can lock the latch properly
