You need to secure the latch into the edge of the door with the screws provided. Point the curved side of the latch toward the direction the door closes as this is very important. If the latch is put on backwards it will not close. Its now time to line up the mounting plate these are the circles that will be fit on both sides with the latch mechanism. Usually there is two screw holes that attach the mounting plates to the door. Screw and tighten the screws making sure that the mounting plates are flush against the door. Some door knobs require you to do this on both sides while others require only a single side. You may also need to insert two long screws to hold it all together.
