Bit needed to drill hole for latch?

by rbhat   Last Updated February 13, 2018 22:21 PM

I recently purchased this Kwikset 96870-100 Belleview Single Cylinder Handleset, and I need to drill the hole for the latch.

What size bit should I buy for this job and can I buy at everyone's favorite Prime online store?

Thanks. enter image description here

I'd suggest you get yourself a "Door Lock Installation Kit"

With 2 different size hole saws and an adjustable jig I've found these to be reasonably fool-proof.
