Can anyone recommend replacment lockset for a peachtree 'prado' swing
style patio door. The doors are bored with ~1 3/4 deadbolt and knob
not the standard 2 1/8. I have not been able to find compatible
locks and Peachtree is giving me the run around with the dealer.
Do OEM locks exist for this type of door?
Perhas this kind of door takes a totally different kind of lockset, but
if not . . .
The Schlage locksets I bought a few months back will, if I am not

Minnie was it a really tight fit? The lock in question is not at my
house and I tried a Kwikset lock and it woudn't work. I measured my
Schlage and it looks like it probably will not fit either (or be
I'll try a Schlage and see what happens.
They really should fit. Is is possible the door came without a hole and
someone put one in and you are blaming the wrong guy. By the way there are
cheap door installation kits whick come with a drill and you could probably
fix the installation easy enuf with the kit.. Check Lowes and Home Depot
where they sell the locksets.
Thanks Art, but this is absolutely a factory whole and it is the Prado
I've alread talked to Peachtree about it and am just waiting for them
to get back to me with the part number for the replacement lock. Very
bad customer service.
I understand I can bore my own wholes, I've done it on every house
I've owned. And I spent last week doing it on two doors at this
house. I have not wanted to do it here because it is a factory whole
and I have no idea what the door is made of between 1 3/4 & 2 1/8.
I stand corrected. I have 2 Peachtree patio doors and I realized I've never
had the lock sets apart. The one I took apart was a Thermatru. It was
supposed to be a Peachtree also but the size was wrong. By the way I will
be replacing the Peachtrees with 2 Pellas and at the time probably disposing
of the 2 Peachtree lock sets. If you want spare parts and live near Raleigh
NC let me know.
