SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Keyed Outside Lock

A home owner from 33442 says:
My slider door has the DNS 1014-4, photo attached. I would like to either replace or retrofit this lock with a keyed outside lock. Any suggestions?

I'm afraid your outside plate doesn't have the knock out plug for a key tumbler. You would need a complete lock set, I think. Take a look at our 82-008K for a possible match.

Thank you Paul.

I received the 82-008K in the mail this morning. It took about 5 minutes remove the old and install the new one. Your SWISCO replacement is almost identical to the original DNS, so much so, that I really only needed to replace the outside plate. I now have what I wanted - a way to lock and unlock the slider from the outside.

Thanks again.
