I think you may have a friction fit type of deadbolt. Remove the door knob or the knob you turn to slide the deadbolt. There should be a shaft that comes out with the knob and was sticking through the inside part of the deadbolt. Now pull the deadbolt straight out, you probably need pliers for this part, be gentle so you don't take the finish off the bolt. I hope this helps, if it doesn't then I may need more info.

I hope that you have been able to get your lock working properly since I sent the "Ask for clarification" post several days ago, which included several suggestions for your problem. I'm considering this fixed, since you haven't re-posted.
My lock did not have jumpers, but adjusts itself automatically... You have to hold the lock button in (on the exterior side) while you insert the battery pack - the deadbolt will cycle in and out, then beep a couple times. You'll be holding button for maybe 10 seconds. I have to say while this step is included in the instructions in a big red box, it says nothing about why or what its doing, so I imagine many people miss this...
Hi... You have too be sure that the deadbolt is free when it go inside the deadbolt hole... however this system is very low power and the (over torque clutch) will sleep if the deadbolt it's not completely free. Also if you try to open the door before you unlock it, you may block the the deadbolt inside the deadbolt hole. Take care too unlock the door before open-it...
my guess is that during installation the inside lock cylinders were 1/2 or a full rotation more in one direction than the outside cylinders. remove it from the door, assemble it and try it without installing it. If it doesn;'t work, take it back. If it's old, oil it. if that doesn't work- toss it- you've spent an hour on a $15 item.
The standard sizes represent what is available in terms of the measurment from the door jamb plate and the center of the lever hardware. Your release handle will not operate correctly, both deadbolt and passage lock.
It sounds, however that you are referring to the distance between two items. The height of the deadbolt in reference to the door handle is not critical. It is dictated by looks, more than function.
