I just moved into my new house and changed all the locks except one. The house was built in 1930 and the back of the house has a "mud room". The door into the house from the mud room is normal. The door into the mud room from the outside is 1 1/8" thick. I want to install a matching dead bolt like the rest of the house.
How can i install a dead bolt into a thin door?
The best thing i can think of is to install "decorative" plates on the inside and outside of the door to make up the thickness before drilling for the lock. The only draw back being that i will have to notch out molding where the extra thickness would be.
