TAKE THE SIDE THAT HAS THE DOOR IN IT AND "REMOVE THE NAIL THATS HOLDING THE DOOR CLOSED".SET THIS SIDE IN THE OPENING AND LEVEL THE DOOR WITH THE LEVEL AGAINST THE TRIM. LOOK AT THE TOP OF THE DOOR AND MAKE SURE THE GAP BETWEEN THE TOP OF THE DOOR AND THE JAMB IS THE SAME.IF NOT YOU WILL NEED TO RAISE ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER TO GET IT EVEN.ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS NAIL THROUGH THE DOOR TRIM INTO THE WALL .NAIL EACH SIDE WITH 4 OR 5 NAILS.CHECK DOOR TO MAKE SURE IT SHUTS OK.
