Adding lock to 82-009A

A home owner from Texas says:
I have a lock that looks like a silver version of your 82-009A handle. I'm interested in replacing it with a keyed lock (or modifying it to include a keyed lock) but don't know the best way to go about doing that. The holes are 4 15/16 apart. I've seen the 82-306 but didn't know if that was compatible?
A home owner from Texas says:
Actually after looking through your other handles, my lock looks more like 82-005 instead of 82-009A. Mine is all silver and says Alenco on the bottom but it looks very similar to 82-005 as far as shape and hole spacing goes. I just want to be able to (un)lock this door from the outside using a key.

Unfortunately, neither our 82-005 or 82-009A are capable of accepting a keyed lock as they are both surface-mount handles.
