I recently purchased a August Lock Gen3 for my apartment and I realized that my deadbolt’s thumbturn(?) is attached to the spindle, making it incompatible for installation. I took it to a local locksmith and they said they don’t have the right spindle and its simply not compatible However, I feel like if I can right sized spindle, I can somehow make it work.
Here a picture of the deadbolt/knob with spindle attached: https://imgur.com/a/jBTfyeF
Anyone had any experience with making this type of installation work or am I just out of luck here?
Appreciate any help offered!
