backing plate for 40-152

A quick learner from Buffalo, NY says:
I need to replace a storm door handle with holes spaced at 1 3/4" and a bottom hole 6 3/8" from top hole. On April 27, 2015, 40-152 was suggested as a solution for an identical handle, but is the backing plate for 40-152 long enough to cover these holes. As suggested the alternative is to make the 40-033 fit

I think it should be enough. If you look at this diagram on the 40-152 store page, you can see that the total hole spacing for the plate is 6-1/2", which more than covers 6-3/8".
