Question Keeler lock assy replacement, '87 AS

Can anyone tell me what modifications will need to be made to the door in order to get the new replacement lock to work. It seems that the latch would be too short if we installed it as is. Modifying the door itself sounds scary to me.

Thanks, in advance.

Tammy

Adapter plates must be riveted to the door.

To Andy: I understand that. But the latch that goes into the strike plate isn't long enough to catch and hold the door closed.

That's true for the cast frame, but an 87 does not have a cast frame.

Or, your door is not positioned correctly, as that lock setup has worked for hundreds of others.
