I believe this is the door knob I have for my bedroom. I recently tried to install this doorknob by myself but it will not lock! I can press the lock in and hear it lock but when someone twists the outside door knob, it'll just unlock. What is going on? This has been driving me crazy!

Did the instruction sheet that came with the door latch set indicate that the unit has a distinct "inside" and "outside" orientation? If so did you follow this carefully in the installation? –  Michael Karas Jul 4 '13 at 7:52
