82-106 Thumbturn

A quick learner from Raleigh, NC says:
I need to replace the thumbturn on my sliding glass door, and part #82-106 looks to be the part I need. However, part of the problem is that I am missing the part that holds the thumbturn in place on the inside of the handle. Does this part come with what I need to hold the thumbturn in place, or do I need an additional part?

Thanks for posting! I'm afraid that I'm not sure as to what part you refer. Do you have a few photos of the thumb latch that you need to replace, or perhaps a photo of the patio door lock itself? That would help us locate this replacement! Thank you.
A home owner from Illinois says:
I had the same question. My broken lock lever has a round disk, kind of like a washer that installs on the inside of the door and keeps the lever from pulling out. That piece isn't shown on the pictures for this item. If you just stick this one into the slot, what keeps it from pulling right back out of the door? How does it lock into position?

Thanks.

Thanks for posting! I think I recognize this thumb turn. Unfortunately, the 82-106 will not replace it. It looks like it's pressed into the handle with that palnut. I think we tried to use these a long time ago to repair some old handles, but they never locked on properly. I think at this point you might want to consider changing your whole handle set. To start, take a look at our 82-035. Could this fit your door?
