Next, install the exterior rose insert, spring cage and the mounting posts onto the exterior face of the door.

Step 7. Insert the two mounting posts onto the rose insert. Slide each post through hole number one.
Step 8. Slide the spring cage onto the mounting posts through holes with the letter B. Make sure the direction of rotation on the Rejuvenator spring cage is the same as the spring cage removed. The lever should spring back when pressed down.
Step 9. Slide the outside rose insert with lever, spring cage and mounting posts through the thru holes in the lock case. Keep pressure against the heads of the mounting posts to ensure they slide through the mortise case.
Step 10. Insert the spring into the opening in the interior side lever insert lever.
Step 11. Insert the two mounting post screws through the number one openings in the lever insert. The mounting post screws have a dab of blue thread lock adhesive.
Step 12. Insert the spring cage onto the mounting post screws through the holes with the letter B. Make sure the direction of rotation on the Rejuvenator spring cage is the same as the spring cage removed.
Step 13. Slide the inside rose insert with lever onto the face of the door, making sure the spindle slides into the spring loaded square opening in the lever.
Step 14. While keeping the rose insert against the door face, install the two inside mounting screws into the mounting posts.
Step 15. Test the operation of the mortise lock with the door open. If the levers do not rotate in the proper direction, the lever’s spring cage is not properly installed.
Step 16. Install the two roses onto the inserts to complete the installation. The notch in the roses should be placed along the bottom. Test the operation of the mortise lock.

Installing a TownSteel Rejuvenator does not require the removal of the mortise case from the door. On locks equipped with sectional trim, only the levers, trim, spring cages and spindles must be removed.
The Rejuvenator sectional trim, the RMS Series is available in US26D Satin Chrome or US32D Satin Stainless Steel with a choice of Imperial, Sentinel or Tango lever.
