Removing locking system from 82-021

A home owner from San Antonio says:

I recently received the Surface Mount Sliding Door Handle Assembly 4-15/16" model # 82-021.

I ordered this item to replace my very old handle Sentinel model made by Vaughan which I was not able to find.

Unfortunately the locking system is very different and I am considering using only the handle.

To use the handle only, I need to remove the locking device installed inside the handle and I would appreciate your advise on how I can do that.

Your response and assistance will be appreciated.

Sure, check out the video below. This video features a different handle but the principle should be the same.
