Take a look at our 82-033 patio handle. It has the same hole centers and it even has that same locking turn lever you show in your photo. Let me know what you think.
A professional from California says:
If you like the wood handle you can usually snap the plastic parts back into the old handle.
A quick learner says:
Dave,

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to find the plastic part that holds the latch knob pictured in my first email.

Are they available. I'm not interested in replacing the handle as I have many and would want them to match, hence my search for the plastic part.

Also, from your expertise in all things patio doors, do you know who the handle manufacturer was/is?

Unfortunately, I don't believe purchasing that inside plastic part by itself is an option. We only have the complete lock set.
A handy person from california says:
Dave,

Thanks for the comeback. As stated in my message, I am only interested in the plastic part that holds the interior manual latch.

Are you saying that if I purchase the 82-033 that the plastic part can be removed from the 82-033 and installed in my old handle?

It's possible, but keep in mind that every manufacture has their own spin on patio door handles. The 82-033 might look the same, but the plastic part could be off by just a little bit; enough that it might not fit yours. I'm sorry we can't offer an easier solution.
A handy person from California says:
Thanks. Could you give me the dimensions of the 82-033 plastic part so I can determine if it would fit. I would hate for me to purchase and then put both of us through the return process and expense.

Sure! Besides the hole placements (3-15/16" apart) and the out side handle length being 7-3/8", the inside pull measures 7-1/4" long. The inside plate on the door measures 7-3/8" long by 1-1/8" wide.
