Doorknob Installations

Why is a door knob designed such that if the deadbolt is retracted when you try to install it the mechanism binds but installed with the deadbolt extended it work smoothly? And why do the instructions not make this more clear? Just saying. Because it could have been thirty minutes instead of two hours had the doc been just a bit clearer on that point.

Not to mention that Nelson and I would not have to suffer the rest of the weekend of Mary letting us know just how much we need her as a supervisor since it was her idea to try it with the bolt out instead of in.

Then she fixed Nelson and me some lunch and we celebrated having new front door hardware and not having our keys getting stuck in the lock every other day. All in all worth the two hours and the lousy instructions in the end.
