40-192 for a 1-1/8" thick door

A from Minnesota says:
Will this latch set work with a new 1-1/8" thick wood screen door? Also, what is the backset? Thank you.

The 40-192 has a back set of 1-1/2" and I believe it's meant for a 1-1/2" thick door. You would need to cut the spindle for a thinner door.

Is your original handle an identical match for the 40-192? If not, I don't think it would work. It is not meant for a new installation and should only be used to replace an identical set.

Normally, wood screen doors use something like our 40-096 lock. I wonder if you could also use a surface-type storm door lock like our 40-160 or 40-058. Take a look and see what you think.
