SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

AW replacement lock and handle

A handy person from West Deptford. NJ says:
I found what I think I need. I have a lock and handle that I would like to replace on a AW sliding window door. I think I found the lock, 82-037. Only difference I see is the replacement has a lock button recessed when door is closed, my part doesn't have that, not sure if that matters. Maybe you can answer.

I also need the handle that goes into the lock. The one I found on your site is white and rounded, the one I'm looking for is brass and is rectangle shaped, with the following part numbers stamped on it:
B2573555
A2573556
C2573557
7246B-4

I would like to order both parts.

I do recognize the needed Thumb Latch Lock, unfortunately is is discontinued and no longer available. There is a Bright Brass Thumb Latch Lock substitute suggested by Andersen, we are bringing it in for your review, please allow at least 4 weeks. I will post again as soon as it available to you and yes, SWISCO product code 82-037, Andersen Reachout Deadlock Assembly, is the appropriate internal lockset to go with this latch.

Hello,

This looks like what I have and appears that it will work. How about the acutal lock, do you also have that part? What happens if I order both and they don't work, can they be returned?
