Old door knob replacement for a thin closet door that won't close properly...and stay closed.
– double dummy door knob – drill – screw driver – pencil – chisel – hammer
So, once the dummy door knobs were installed I worked on the ball catch latch. I had to use the hammer and chisel to carve out the door and the door jamb so that the latch and strike plate would fit.
To fix the holes I just used our tried and true toothpick trick. I just rolled a few toothpicks in wood glue and stuck them in the screw holes.
Next I trimmed the toothpicks with a pair of nippers and hammered in the toothpick stubs. Now I was ready to install the ball catch latch.
Once the door knobs and latches were installed I moved on to the door hinges.
