all strike plates are adjustable while in place. If there is play when the door is closed and its no more that a quarter of an inch or less you can insert a screw driver into the plate and bend the metal tounge piece in toward the door stop and this will take up allot of play. If its more than that amount you will have to move in in.

Remember the more holes that you drill into this area the weaker the plate and the jamb becomes.
