Long Backset Deadbolt

Hi All,
One of my clients has a front door with a seven and one quarter inch backset. He wants to install a dead bolt that has the same backset but neither he nor I could find any source for this. The house, if you haven't already guessed, is an eighty's ranch, with yankee gutters and a slate roof no less. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Re: Long Backset Deadbolt

Check with a local locksmith he can hook you up with one. I've had foreclosure homes that have had them and I don't carry anything like that in my inventory. I prefer Schlage for a deadbolt. When you have to drill one out or tear it off trust me they're a bitch.

I have tried the local locksmiths and they are no help. Anyone know of any oddball lock stores?
