Go with Kwikset for older 1.5″ bore hole doors

What’s up with the instructions for the Schlage Plymouth BE365 lock? They say it’s compatible with 1.5″ bore holes, but that’s clearly not true. The 2-1/8″ collar is NOT removable. Clearly a copy-paste error by an eager graphic-design intern LOL. Went with Kwikset’s Powerbolt 250 instead. It has a removable collar. Worked like a charm! Though I did need to enlarge the deadbolt hole slightly with a rasp bit. Just move it around in a circle, trying your best to keep the bit parallel with the hole.
