What are my options if I have a 5 Inch backset?
In this category there are many options for knobs, levers, handlesets or deadbolts that are available with a 5" backset. You are however restricted to Schlage and Kwikset brands. Unfortunately every brand of door hardware designs their latches a little differently so you can't use a 5" backset from Schlage or Kwikset on something like Emtek or Baldwin. If you can't find anything in the Kwikset or Schlage brands that you like, you really only have the option of replacing your door. If you happen to have a wooden door, you may be able to patch the old bore hole, sand it smooth and re-bore, but it's not ideal. Your best option is to either start over with a new door which would give you the flexibility to choose whatever style or brand of doorknob, lever or handleset. Of course replacing your door isn't the least expensive option, but there you have it.
