deadlock wont go in flush. hitting strikeplate on side.

December 12, 2019

hello. i installed schlage deadbolt. it wont go in flush because striker plate is hitting it on the side. if i push the door in, it will go in flush.

my issue: i dont have anymore space to move the striker plate to the right. is there anything i can do to the DOOR in a way where it will go into the frame more(eg., when i push the door in it sits well, but when i simply close it, it moves a small amount where deadbolt wont go into plate.)

what to do to the door??

thank you!!
ps the picture is not from my door. just an example. i dont have enough space on left to move striker plate.
