AbstractAn adapter assembly is used in combination with a door of the type having an elongated opening to receive a bolt extending from a lock which is mounted in a door coupled to the frame. The adapter assembly comprises an elongated strike plate, mounting means for coupling the strike plate to the frame in one of two inverted positions and an adjustable cover. The strike plate has an elongated, generally rectangular aperture longitudinally offset toward one end of the strike plate. The adjustable cover is coupled to the strike plate for closing at least a portion of the strike plate aperture and the opening in the door frame. This provides a simple mechanism for customizing the opening in the door frame to any one of a wide variety of different lock and knobset arrangements by varying the size and location of the opening.
