Acorn Patio Locking Handle

A home owner from Manchester, NH says:
Hi, I bought a locking handle with a key for my sliding glass door. Product number 82-055K. Please help, the hardware came with no instructions. I have no clue how to install this. There are multiple sets of screws and I don't know where they all go. What are the steps I should take to install this properly? Thanks for any help you can give me! I live alone and have no one in my life that can put it in, so it's up to me. Looking forward to hearing from you ASAP. Thanks.

Thanks for posting, Jill! I will do my best to help you install this.

The first thing you want to do is make sure that the 82-055K matches up to your original handle. Compare the distance between the screw-hole-centers for the 82-055K to the handle that was in your door originally and see if they are the same.

If they are, then the rest of the steps should be a snap. You will have to install the tooth into the cut out in the door, and then line up the screw holes. You will then use the two long machine screws to secure the lock to the frame.
