My house was built in 1930. Most of the original hardware is still here, I love it and like the look of it. However all of the bedrooms/bathrooms have unlocking knobs with a separate skeleton key lock below it.

My three kids would love to be able to lock themselves into their rooms (to keep their toys safe from the other kids lol) but we dont have the skeleton keys and i imagine they would all be the same so that would defeat the purpose of keeping the others out.

I wanted to buy some replacement knobs with the push button lock (so I could pop it if I needed to get in to check on things lol) but they require a different size hole. (it would ruin my doors and make me take down the original pretty brass decoration around the lock/knob in order to drill)

My question there such a thing as a knob with a locking mech. that will go on a door with a single small hole (the hole and rod thing seem to be the standard 2" stuff)

Thanks for your help or at least for your
