New door handles for thicker door

What do I look for or what is the name for door knob and deadbolt that will fit in about a 2- 1/2 inch exterior door? Are they the same for an 1-3/4 door and be adjusted to fit?

Thank you.

Most locks will not accommodate doors thicker than about 1-7/8", nor do many lock brands even have the option. But the fact that your door is that thick would suggest it's pretty heavy, and you'll not be using el cheapo hardware anyway, so the heavier duty lock brands will have thick door options. Schlage for example offers an option on their medium and heavy duty locks for 2 to 2-1/2" thickness. Get the exact thickness, because even at 2-5/8" the thick door option might not work. Some of the other main line brands might go a little beyond 2-1/2" though. Generally, these are more commercial grade locks, and not your typical cheap Grade 3 residential variety.
