Installing Door Lock


I am attempting to install a a simple cylinder door lock. I have done everything up to connecting the rods but I can seem to align for the life of me. Is their some trick to aligning them?

you probably have the backset in upside down (the actual part that slides into the door jamb). Most of them are marked TOP or UP somewhere in the center. check that first
