Can you use this for a 1 1/8 wooden storm door?

A home owner from Virginia says:
I have a new wooden storm door that is 1 1/8 thick. I wanted something more substantial than the mortise screen door lock set but less involved and expensive than the complete mortise lock set. Would this work? I have plenty of space where I want to mount it.

Our 40-188 is designed for a 1" thick door. I took one out of inventory to look over and I think you might be able to sneak in that extra 1/8", but you will need to go to a hardware store in your area to have them supply you with longer mounting screws. We also carry the 40-131 , which can be used for doors up to 2-1/4" thick. Take note however that the 40-131 has a surface mounted lock, not a mortise lock like the 40-188 . Look them both over and see what you think.
