Question

Entry Door Handleset


Hello

This is my first time on this site, so I hope this post is in the right chat room. I need to replace my entry door handleset, but I think some of the dimensions of my existing one are non-standard. The center-to-center dimension is 5 1/4". This distance from the center of the handleset cross bor to the bottom existing through bolt is 9 1/4". I haven't seen any new handlesets with those dimensions. What options do I have? How critical is that 5 1/4" dimension? Thanks.

Scott

To avoid trying to match the 5 1/4" c/c select a style that has a stand alone deadbolt as oppossed to one that has the deadbolt and latch in the same trim plate. The dimension to the through bolt for the bottom of the handle is purely a function of the style of the handle, so you may have to plug the old hole with a dowel and redrill a new one.
