      A:  There are 2 door thicknesss - so you there are two of these, one to fit each door.   One more important thing - there are two standard distances the door handle is away from the door, so after picking the right door thickness, you need to make sure to measure the distance from the center of the handle to the front door edge - and make sure you order the right one.   I got the door thickness right but forgot about the dimension for the center of the hole to the door edge and had to return the one I had and get the other one (two standard spacing).

        Q:Very confused here-Which product description is accurate, the item listing or the dimensions given in the product photos? The product listing says solid brass but the image appears stainless steel. The product listing says 1-3/4" door but the dimensions given show a 1-3/8" door.

            Does what it's designed for!
            I installed this item on a 1-3/4" metal-clad backyard shed door to increase security. Nice finish, feels like quality. I chose to drill through the door and use two long SS bolts with lock nuts on the inside in lieu of the four sheet metal screws provided in the package. With careful measurements I got a perfect fit. Installation is easier with the door dismounted, IMO.

            It does what it is supposed to do, reinforces the edge of the door and/or covers up unsightly holes or damage around the knob or deadbolt. You do have to mortise out the edge of door somewhat more than the space for the latch which means theres no going back once this is installed.

            I'm sure the product is fine but I was sent wrong size. Frustrating

            Product sent was wrong size.
            the title up there, you will notice, quite clearly says "1 3/8" no? i was sent a 1 3/4 sized product. why does noone check this. I was out of time for the job i was doing, so was forced to modify this for purpose. its fortunate im familiar with sheet metal working, but others may not be. buyer beware. If i had known i would have to rebend and rework this, i would have just started from raw material. Thanks for the extra stress and time pressure, folks.
