Sourcing the Correct Size of Lock for Storm Door

Postby emseecaw » Tue Sep 10, 2019 10:26 am

Hi

I'm looking to replace an old rim dead lock on a wooden storm door, and would ideally like to make use of the existing key hole in the door. I'm having problems finding a dead lock with the right measurement between edge of door and centre of keyhole (backset I believe) of 100mm.

So essentially I'm looking for something like this with the correct backset:

Does anyone know if this kind of lock is still available and maybe where I'd find one, or do you think I'm better giving up and creating a new keyhole?

Thanks for any help.
