Adjusting anti burst door latches & strikers

I installed anti burst latches and new strikers on the 1983 110. They close and with some more shimming of the striker I finally have one that will lock.

The issue I have now is that it is ridiculously hard to open. It's like the are stuck and with enough force will release. I'd like them to open and close with less muscle needed.

Should all of my adjustments be with the striker and how it mounts? Are there any other tricks for adjusting these or is it loosen, move a bit, tighten, until they work?

Thanks,
Alex

You are correct on the adjustment. You may also make sure your doors are aligned good. It is a pita to get then correct sometimes.
