Tooth sizes for 82-008

A handy person from Marco Island FL says:
The standard tooth that comes with the 82-008 appears to be a "C" tooth. It is too short. Before I order a bigger one , do you have the dimensions of the various tooths i.e. from edge to edge. The "C" Tooth appears to be about 7/8th of an inch wide and I need a tooth that is about 1" wide. Would that be the "K" Tooth?

Please advise

Thank you in advance

The 82-202 "G" tooth is 1" wide, and the 82-203 "K" tooth is 1-1/8" wide. I must warn you that the 82-008 lock normally uses the 82-201 "C" tooth. The 82-202 and 82-203 aren't made for this lock, so you will likely need to drill the hole larger and file down some of the tooth to fit.
