Latch only or entire lockset?

A quick learner from Rolling Meadows, IL says:
Need to replace the inside latch only if possible. Would the 40-053 be a suitable replacement or would we need to replace the entire lock set with your 40-177? Important: Can the outside lever be reversed to face the hinges? Thanks in advance!

Your handle set isn't made anymore, but I've known other customers who used our 40-150 as a replacement for the older inside latch. I think this is your best option. The only caveat is that you will likely have to shim it up a little to meet the old keeper.

If all fails, though, then I do think that our 40-177 can be used as a substitute.

Both the 40-150 and 40-177 can be flipped around to work on either side.

Tom,

Thank you for your reply and suggestions. Difficult decision to go with just the 40-150 or the complete 40-177 set. On our door, center line from lock to door knob is about 3 1/2".

I watched the install video for the 40-177 set. First question: Are all 6 spindle lengths supplied with the kit as well as the different length screws? Our door is 1 ½" thick.

Final question: If the inside latch and/or deadbolt needs shimming to meet the old keepers any recommendation for shimming material?

Thank You again.

Yes, the 40-177 should come with all the proper spindles and hardware for installation. As for shimming the latch, we actually did carry a shim specifically made for the 40-150 at one time, but it was recently discontinued and we have been unable to find a good source for something similar. I would check with a local hardware store and see what they recommend. You could potentially use washers but that's obviously not very good looking. Hopefully a store near you has a plate of some kind that can comfortably mount under it.
