Check the interior sides of the handle to find the screws. If you do not find the screws, then the door handle head should be popped-off using a flathead screwdriver. The screwdriver head should be inserted into the side slot and turned slightly. The cover on the handle will come-off exposing the screw. The screw can be turned and removed. This should be done for both sides of the handle - inside as well as outside. Then the screws on the strike plate are removed from the side of the door and then the latch is removed. In case of screen doors and storm doors, you can skip this step. The next step in door handle replacement is to take a measurement of the distance between the side of the door and the holes.

Door handles come designed for specific tasks and so it is important to use the right one for the job, as an example using an internal door handle for external use can prove disastrous and it may well rust in no time at all. Also when it comes to fitting a lock to a door you will need to decide whether you are going to have a separate handle and lock, or a fitting that combines both. It may well be that like most people you do not need locks fitted to every door, however if you do need some doors to be fitted with locks, on storage cupboards as an example, and want to use handles fitted with integrated locks in them then make sure they are available in the range of handles you are considering buying. This is because it can be very easy to buy a range of handles only to decide you need some with integrated locks at a later date, but if they do not do them in the range, you may find yourself swapping out all of your handles for a new range. So a tip when buying is to make sure that the range you are looking at actually has all the handle fitments you need, to avoid a costly swap out at a later date. Also if you are buying ones for commercial premises then you may want to ask your supplier if the handles you are looking at purchasing will be suitable, as they will have to put up with a lot more "Traffic" in terms of how often they are opened and closed during the day, as well as how hard wearing the finish of the door handles is.
