Dead Bolt lock issue, bolt guide sleeve

I recently realized that my deadbolt lock does not engage and lock when trying to lock, this is something I almost never use until recently the DW decided that we should use it.

After a quick look, I realized that it's due to an alignment issue due to the plastic ( or the likes ) sleeve missing that centers the bolt.

No joy in finding one at this time .... needs to be round.

I'm thinking someone else has had this issue in the past and where they found the part or what they used to remedy.

My guess is that is a sleeve with a lip that pushes in from the outside to center the bolt. Click image for larger version

I would see if you could find a nylon bushing at a hardware store, some do have a flange on them. Just might take a little searching.

I looked at ours and lo and behold it's just like yours but it still works and locks .

Like yours the hole is a little over sized and I can see on yours evidence where it
once had a sleeve but I don't see that on mine .

McMaster Carr has just about anything you can think up , here is a link to
something I think you can use .

Now that you say that the funny thing is that I don't ever remember a bushing being in there either ..but as pictured it looks like there was one by the witness mark on the outer surface of the O.D. ........hmmmm?

I've been on the road for a couple of months now, but when I get home may remove the panel and take a further look. Everything seems to rotate freely and fine, but it doesn't seem let the bolt guide itself into the recess ......

Thanks for your quick response.

If you can determine where it is hitting you may be able to move the striker
on the door frame a little bit .

I can see the marks you are referring to on yours and agree that something
was there .

After seeing how loose the plunger is in mine I wonder if it could be one of
my rattles that I can't hear but my DW can . LOL

Just had a look at mine. No bushing and big hole ... just like yours. Works fine. Are you sure your issue isn't that the door doesn't fully close (common on PTL doors). The door should close to the 2nd latching (2 clicks).

Check the electrical section in big box stores. A plastic grommet for steel studs works.

Till you find a gromet, take some duck tape, and expirament with it to hold your dead bolt up in the right position! Then if you have room between the door and the frame, you can make one out of flat stock, drill a hole for the lock bolt and a screw hole in the top and the bottom! Rail!

Thanks for all the great ideas' to all.

Like I said earlier, Im not going to mess with this further until I get back home in a month or so. Murphy's law and not going to press my luck and going from bad to worse while out on the road. ( like get locked in or out)

As far as my door handle release? with the adjustments shared in this thread here and previously here at iRV2, I synced adjusted my door handles a few years ago and work like a hot knife thru butter. ( this statement will be the kiss of death I'm sure lol )


Thanks again to all and when I address and cure the problem I will be sure to share.


Happy Trails

We have an old fashioned hardware store that has several drawers of small parts and they had a new bushing. The bushing has a part number on it (MP7510). They are called Snap Buttons and are usually used for electrical wiring. It works very smooth now.
