Question

Doors with 5" lockset hole-replacements


I have doors with 5" lockset holes. I would like to find lockset that would fit without changing the doors. Any ideas or website where I could find some that fit thanks.

The hole is regular size but the center of the hole to the edge of the door is 5" instead of the regular 3 1/2"

I ran into one about two years ago, I could order one through Lowe's, but found the longer latch-piece as "paul100" posted at a local builder supply store. I'd certainly try the apron stores before ordering. Maybe an ACE Hardware if there is one near you. Good Luck, David

Try a locksmith shop, they may have some in stock. If not they should be able to order some. If they are Kwiksets, you can just change the knob and use the same latch.

are you saying your backsets are 3.5 and 5?

3-1/2" is not a regular backset either. Standard is 2-3/8" and 2-3/4". Depending on the brand of lockset, 5" backsets should be available. Schlage and Kwikset definitely make them. 3-3/4" was made for a while, but I've not seen any in years. A local locksmith shop may be your best bet.
