Need 4 3/4 inch extended lip strikeplate


We have an exterior door (Pella) that is in an exterior 6" wall. The interior side of that wall has faux rock, which required some additional trim around the door. This means that the already-wide jamb is even wider. The strike plate is typical, probably an inch and 3/4 or something like that.

I wish I had a better picture, but this shows you the door, and how it swings in, and the rock layer around it, which causes the extra door jamb depth. There is a very thin and narrow trim that covers the edge of the rock.http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo...eat=directlink

I hope that link worked.

When we open that door (swinging in), the latch is scraping the jamb and additional trim. It catches on the narrow trim and I just know it's going to rip that piece off if we don't do something.

I have been unable to find an extended lip strikeplate that would cover the entire distance between the edge of the wood and the inside lip that the door closes against, which is 4 5/8".

After searching the web, most strikeplates are measured from the middle of the latch hole to the outer edge of the trim, which I guess would be about 4" measuring by that method. The strikeplates I've seen wrap over the edge a little, which might mean we could take something a little bigger.

But alas, the widest I can find is a 3" strikeplate (measured from the middle of the hole to the edge. That would not cover the trim.

Any ideas?

I'm not handy cutting, bending, and smoothing metal, but it seems like cutting a piece myself might be my only option.
