Trouble Shooting Install:
If when using they keyed handle set and the turn lever for the lock and the turn lever for the keyed cylinder are hitting and pushing each other out of the the latch: This could be because you have the french style Hurd door and the panel is a different thickness. What you will need to do is cut the shafts so they both can fit into the mortise lock and the handle set can be screwed down tightly. Easiest is to put on the outside handle in place and mark the shaft where it comes through. Take it off and do the same for the inside handle. Then you can cut just shy of that mark on both shafts and then they should meet in the middle. Double check your marks so you cut on the correct side and don't cut too short. This handle set is made as a replacement option for many door thickness which is why you get multiple length screws and can cut the shafts to fit. If you want to avoid doing this all together order the non keyed version.
Never use power tools when installing handle sets you run the risk of stripping out the screws.
Old Style Shim # 512-OLD will NOT work with the new style C-Elite handle. You Must order the #512-NEW with Handle set #522
