Question about Hardware & Accessories
My 1955 home has an original dooor that I can't make my brand new door knob set fit into, bacause the new backset is 2 3/8th. The cylindualar mechanism doesn't go in far enough and the old cylindular mechanism is much shorter in length. What to do here, please. Don't want to drill the hole farther on the right because it will not be covered my the outer knob. Are there shorter backsets that I could find somewhere?
You can get a variety of backsets at a GOOD door/ window company.
You may also want to look closely at the lock bolt again, because some of them come with a backset adjuster. Some of the Schlage and Kwiksets will allow you to twist the barrel and change the backset...
