5" deadbolt backset

I am trying to install a 5" backset deadbolt in my front door. I have the hardware but the template for the deadbolt is not setup for the 5" backset. Does anyone have or know where I can get a template to install the deadbolt.

You did not mention the manufacturer-you should use their template ideally, although a 5" backset is 5".

Alternatively, mark the door for the template you have and add the difference between that number and 5". e.g. add 2 1/4 more to a 2 3/4 backset, using a square, to get 5".

I will give that a try.
