How hard is it to replace my handle with the 82-002?

A home owner from Proctorville, NC says:
My sliding door handle is old and broken. It has been on the out for a few years now and I would love to have a nice working handle again. Is replacement easy?

Replacing your old sliding glass door handle with the 82-002 is pretty straightforward. As long as the dimensions of your current sliding glass door handle match the dimensions in the 82-002 product picture, installation should be a breeze. One of the only slightly tricky parts of the installation is matching the 'tooth' found in your patio glass door handle with the teeth that come with the 82-002 handle set. The 82-002 handle set comes with three different options for teeth, one of them should match up to your old handle. See the video tutorial below. Let me know if you have further questions about the installation process. Please reply with some pictures if you get stuck.
