Steps To A Professional Door Installation In 4 Minutes:

#1 DRAW YOUR LINE
On the visible hinge side of the opening, using a level, draw a vertical plumb line on the drywall 3/4" from the rough opening from top to bottom.

#2 ATTACH BRACKETS TO YOUR JAMB
On the hinge side, install 3 brackets to the jamb, one at each hinge using three mounting holes and 1/2" screws.  Using the two vertical holes on each side to align and centre the bracket to the jamb.

Now install the other three brackets on the opposite side. Install the top bracket four inches down and bottom bracket four inches up. Install the centre bracket two inches above the door latch.

#3 PLACE YOUR DOOR 
Place spacers on the floor as needed to represent the thickness of a finished floor. *The bottom of the door should be approximately 1/2 inch from your finished floor.Working with the face of the door, bend all six tabs and place the door in the opening. Open the door and bend all six tabs on the other side.

#4 SECURE TO THE WALL
Starting at the top hinge, fasten the bracket using the adjustable slot with a two inch screw lining up the notches on the 3/4 inch plumb/level line on the wall.

Working your way down, install the other two brackets on the plumb/level line. Drive the screws flush with the drywall. Your door is now level.

Continuing on the latch side, making sure to leave an equal space between the top and side of the door and jamb. Fasten the three remaining brackets with two inch screws.

#5 SECURE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL
Continue on the other side of the door, making sure the bottom of the jamb is square with the wall and fasten this side with two inch screws.

Measure the top of the opening and verify that the same measurement is at the bottom. Fasten the three remaining brackets.


TIP: Remove centre screw in top hinge and replace with longer screw, to secure to the wall framing.

You are now ready to install the trim!
