Mrs. Black wanted a Giant Screen Viewer peep hole on her front door to be able to see people at her door.

This post shows the six steps that shows the installation of the hole for the U 9917 Giant Screen Viewer. 

Step 1: This was not a new install. The door had an existing peep hole so the guide bit was not needed. Fig.1 shows the 3/16 drill bit and fig.2 shows the drill bit can be placed either at the bottom or the top of this larger hole. Fig.3 shows the bottom of the peep hole was chosen..

Step 2: Fig.4 shows a Ryobi 12 Volt Cordless Drill with a 1-3/4 hole saw and place the hole saw bit in the bottom hole. Next it will take time to get through the door skin.
