looking for American Craftsman 5500 glass patio door mortise lock with a key which can be locked from the outside. Thanks for your help.

I need to be able to lock patio door from outside.

Can you submit a picture or two of your existing handle set? I would like to see what is currently on your American Craftsman door so that I can make a recommendation.

Thank you for your reply. Please see attached image of the lock. It fits inside a vertical hole in the door frame, the handles are screwed on to a solid surface. I cannot see how a keyed lock could be possible without drilling a hole through the frame.

Normally, we use the 82-309 Key Set on the American craftsman door. However, we use it on the 82-035 Handle Set. I can't quite see your handle set on the outside, so I'm not sure if the key set will work on your outside handle. Take a look at the 82-309 Lock Set to see if it will work on your door. If not, you may have to include the 82-035 Handle Set.

Take a look at the 82-218 Mortise Lock, this looks like it could be a good match.
