A strike plate is a metal plate affixed to a door jamb with a hole or holes for the bolt of the door. When the door is closed, the bolt extends into the hole in the strike plate, and holds the door closed. The strike plate protects the jamb against friction from the bolt, and increases security in the case of a jamb made of a softer material (such as wood) than the strike plate.

DON-JO EL-115 Reviews
Rated 5 out of
The only solution on the marketThis was the only extended strike plate on the market that suited my need for a recent job. I installed new doors throughout a house. The DonJo nickel finish and plate dimensions match Schlage's satin nickel handle sets. I needed the extended lip as the latch would otherwise hit the door trim because the doors were deeply recessed. Schlage does not make extended lip strike plates. The Don-Jo drawing is not to scale, but the label is correct -- it is 1.5 inches from the screw holes to the strike edge for the EL-115.
The gauge of the metal is slightly thinner than Schlage plates, but it still has a solid feel. Each plate comes with two screws.
