Are you planning on replacing a commercial door lock and feeling a bit overwhelmed? Does the instruction booklet included with new lock look like it was written in a foreign language? We understand the frustration and want to help. The professionals at Rocket Locksmith have compiled a list of helpful, step-by-step instructions for changing out a commercial door lock.

Step by Step Guide to Installing a Commercial Door Lock

  • Uninstall the old latch
  • Remove old and replace it with the new latchbolt
