On electric Schlage locks the deadbolt is tapered so if the deadbolt doesn’t strike perfectly it can still actuate and not destroy the motor.
Can you buy just the deadbolt part from that kit to install on normal Schlage deadbolts? Seems like a much easier solution vs adjusting several doors in a 110 year old home. Anybody know the part number or where I could buy just that component?
The short answer is no.
You really need a competent locksmith to come talk with you about your options. Search online for locksmiths who advertise commercial work. Most importantly, read the reviews from other customers. Also, if he comes out and you don’t like him, maybe he’s rude, or feel that he doesn’t know what he’s doing, call someone else. A novice or incompetent locksmith can really screw this up. If you can locate a city or regional locksmith association and get recommendations from them, you’ll be way ahead. An example would be the Greater Houston Locksmith Assoc.
The two small circles on the back are actually head fillers, tiny little screw type things that go in the top of a screw/bolt head. If you get a very small flat head driver, you should be able to pop them out, revealing the bolts underneath for you to unscrew.
