A Little Overkill

Don't get me wrong, I believe in over designing where necessary, just for the solid feel, but 3" nails for a tiny stike plate?

I finally got my necessary dimensions and obtained the door hardware at "the joove". It is unbelievable how not standard old door hardware is. I'm quite happy with how everything is fitting well, but I do still need to run and get some fasteners. I was stealing from the other old doors in the house, just to get all set up to verify it would work.

Sounds like the same people who installed the strike plate at your place also secured the door casing on one of the upstairs bedrooms in my house. Three inch galvanized nails to keep on a 3 foot long, 1X6 door casing header.
