1.Choose a height for your sliding bolt
Measure and mark it in two places to ensure that the bolt is level.
2.Align the main body of the bolt with your pencil marks and mark the position of the screw holes.
3.Drill a shallow hole on each of your screw hole pencil marks.

7.Remove the wood.
8.Check the fit of the bolt holder in the recess.
Mark the position of the screw holes.
9.Attach a narrow bit to the drill and drill some pilot holes, then fit a screw head bit and drill the staple into the recess.
