Is this possible? My door and the door trim are not flush. The trim extends maybe 1/4 in. past the door. Can I install a door buckle lock? They are more secure than a chain lock, so I'd rather have the buckle lock.

I'm wondering if there's a way to attach something to the door/trim to make it flush, so I can install the lock.

Door buckle lock:

Oh, I found a picture of a door that is like mine. Someone drilled a groove to make the lock fit. This seems like a good idea.

You can also place a thin block of wood under the part on the door side. Buy longer screws at the hardware store.

In your situation, buy a plastic covered, high tensile steel cable door lock.
