4. While holding the handle, insert the short end of the hex key
into the upper hole and slightly rotate the hex key until it is
engaged in the setscrew.
5. Using a clockwise motion, tighten the setscrew until it begins
to contact the shoulder screw.

without this extra tightening.

quarter-turn at a time.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the upper setscrew. Gently pull the
handle away from the door.
4. If necessary, use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the shoulder
screws from the door.
