I will definitely be doing that when the new handle comes, just in case.

Normus I thought I had the lock disabled,(meaning that the interior door handle had a lock switch, just non-functioning) but somehow I managed to know the assembly into the "locked" position. Definitely won't be stumping me anymore. On another note, the replacement exterior paddle handle I ordered for the door, doesn't work. I have it connected exactly as it should be, any thoughts on what is wrong?

Mason505 Also you might want to zip tie the strikers in place so they don't slip

Thanks for all the feedback,the striker is in the correct orientation, and I could not get the fingers to move. I am thinking it must be locked, I cannot believe I forgot to check. Something I will look into when the sun comes up.

Mine was bent inwards and I had a very hard time shutting the door.. I just bent it back out and it shut perfectly.. I discovered this after I replaced the hinges, thinking that was the problem.
