Works on 1.5 Inch Bore Holes !!!
I came home one day to find that I could no longer insert my key into my front door lock. It turned out, my grandmother came to visit and tried jamming in the wrong key with brute force and then removing it. Needless to say, that totally messed up the lock. Not even WD40 oil would loosen the jam.
What made things even worse was that I found out my door was really outdated when I tried buying a new replacement deadbolt. It would not fit into the bore hole since it measured 1 1/2 inches. New doors/locks aren't made with that size anymore.
After doing Google searches, I came across only 1 or 2 references about Schlage B60 deadbolts fitting into 1 1/2 inches holes. Other websites advertising the same product don't mention this at all, so I was hesitant to buy the B60 series of locks.
Since it seems like nobody else out there sells deadbolts for 1.5 inches holes, I went and bought one. I can confirm that this indeed works!! You must remove the mounting ring that it comes with but it's easy to do.
This lock saved me the trouble of having to drill a bigger hole in my door and risk cracking and damaging it or hire a pro to do it for a lot of money. I'm even thinking about buying a spare Schlage B60 deadbolt just in case my grandmother decides to visit again LOL. Anyways, thank you Schlage and Lowes!!
