Andy, thank you for your interest in the RYOBI Door Latch Installation Kit. I am sorry, no. The blade is not replaceable. You would need to purchase another tool. Thank you for asking, If you have further questions and would like to speak with a RYOBI Customer Experience Professional, please call, 1-800-525-2579 M-F from 9am-6pm EST. Hope this helps! - Vini
I've done many doors with this tool. I haven't had the opportunity to use it on a fiberglass door yet, but, I would. With confidence.
Yes it will.
Its 1" wide by 2 1/4" tall
I use it after. It makes the chiseling easier.

Unfortunately Ryobi Teams answer is wrong. You can NOT use this for the strike plate. While the latch plate and strike plate are the same length, the issue is the door stop nailed to the inside of your door jamb will interfere with the top of this tool and not allow you to create the mortise for the strike plate. They could have designed the tool to allow you to do both jobs, but unfortunately, they did not.
An existing door would already be prepped. This tool will only mortise for the latch in the door. No hinges, strike plates.
If the door latch isn't latching in the strike plate, then the latch and strike plate are misaligned. You need to kneel down and look closely at the center of latch in relation to the strike plate. If the perceived centers of each align, then the strike plate is setting too far back in the jamb, and the latch is failing to reach, and fall into the hole drilled for it previously. You'll need to adjust the strike plate further away from the jamb stop. If, however, the centers are off (meaning, up, or down), then you'll need to adjust the strike plate position to line up properly with the latch. Good luck!
