Is there a product that makes installing a strike plate easier?

Yes. If you’ve installed a new door or doorknob and the tongue isn’t lining up perfectly with the strike plate, you can purchase an adjustable strike plate. Adjustable strike plates have the ability to slide backward and forward a few centimeters to allow your doorknob’s tongue to latch tightly.
