82-073 Slider door lock

A contractor from USA says:
appears that the spindles the region to the door or too short this is a standard craftsman slider you told me the lock was for this door. Is there something wrong that I don't see. Is there a lock with a longer stand that will reach into my locking mechanism

Dave from SWISCO responded:
Normally, the spindles go in partway on both sides of the mortise lock. Try to install it and see if it works.

If not, tell me the thickness of your door. As stated in the product description, the 82-073 is meant for doors that are 1-5/8" thick, but no more.
