8. The right rosette spacer

To avoid pulling the cylinder out of place, find the right spacer or a spacer combination for insertion between the rosette and the back plate.

Unscrew the two breakable screws that hold the spacers together with the adjustable cylinder.

Choose one or more spacers so they are flush with the rosette surface. (See illustration).

IMPORTANT! Avoid pulling the cylinder out of place. It is important that the spacer is flush or protrudes from the hole in the rosette plate.

9. Break the screws to the right length

Depending on which spacer or spacer combination you chose, it is important that the screws that fasten the cylinder to the back plate are of the correct length. Use this chart to find the right length.

Use a wire cutter or two sets of pliers, or you can bend the screws back and forth several times in a vice to break them.
