Keeper Needed

A quick learner from Chicago says:
I'm pretty sure the mortise locks on my Cardaco sliding glass doors are the same as your Product Code 82-226 (although whoever installed this one put it in upside down). They also failed to install keepers for both locks. What keepers can I get to go with these locks. I'm selling the house and the buyer wants them.

I agree, the 82-226 looks like a good match. As for the keeper, there are actually a bunch of possibilities. It would depend on what space is available in the jamb as much as it does on the lock itself. You can start with the 89-020, 89-021D, and 89-021. One of these may work, but you will need to carefully look over the space where it installs and see how well they'd fit.
A professional from CA says:
Sometimes it is easy to turn the mortise upside down. It depends on whether the manufacturer was planning ahead. If the option is not there you should be able to make it work with a little drilling. I always try to reverse these if possible.
