Corrosion Resistant 40-057 lock set?

A home owner from Depoe Bay, Oregon says:
Hi. The hardware (Swisco Thumb Latch Deadbolt Handle Set, 1-3/4" Product code: 40-057) on my 3 storm doors has become quite corroded due to the salt air and mist. I was wondering if you have any replacement sets that are more resistant to coastal weather? Regards, Pete

Thanks for contacting us, Pete. Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having. The 40-057 is only made in a painted black finish, I'm afraid. That said, I believe Krylon spay paint has a clear coat spray. Check with a lock hardware store and see if you could use this clear coat spray to protect the finish on your handle set.
