Installing a Peephole

This story shows how to install a peephole.

Step 1

Center the peephole about 65 inches above the floor. Drill a hole with a spade or a Forstner bit, stopping just when the point breaks through the other side.

Step 2

Finish the hole from the opposite side of the door. Hold the drill back from pushing through; it is easy to splinter the other side.

Step 3

Push the lens end of the peephole into the hole on the outside of the door.

Step 4

Finish the installation by screwing the inner ring in place.
