Is the installation hardware included with the 88-001?

Does this patio door handle come with the hardware necessary to attach it through the door? I would be buying this as a replacement for a broken handle, and some of my existing hardware is damaged as well. The handle attaches to the door by a bolt from one side of door that screws into a long receptacle coming from the other side of the door.

Fasteners are not included with the 88-001. Normally, these wood handles fasten to the patio door lock. However it sounds like you are installing it through the door. If you are, you could try using a fastener called a sex bolt. Your local hardware store should carry various sizes of sex bolts. Note, if you are going to drill through the Patio door, be careful you do not damage the glass.
