    There's no knack as such , it should just fit quite easily. One thought , are you trying to fit the new lock to the old mounting plate? Won't work most likely.
    Photos may help get you an answer.

    Ok , try taking the mounting plate off the door and assembling the whole thing off the door, it's possible something is bent or misaligned and it will be clearer to see it off the door. When you can fit it together off the door you can then go back to trying on the door.
