Where can I buy binding posts for a 1-3/8 door?

Our closets have door levers attached to them using binding posts / chicago screws / sex bolts. The doors are 1-3/8" thick.

For the life of me, I can't find the binding posts / chicago screws / sex bolts of the right size anywhere.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Did you try a local hardware store ?
My hardware has them.

I did. And online as well. Some stores do have them, but not in the right size.

Where do builders get these anyways?

A contractor would buy them from Graingers or Saxton.

Most of the online places will only sell in 100 lots.

What size do you need? I've purchased from BoltDepot.com numerous times and always been completely satisfied.
