Outdoor lock for sliding door

A home owner from Arkansas says:
I have a glass sliding door that I would like to put an exterior lock on. Key lock on the outside, turn knob on the inside. The door is a Caradco brand door, part number cpdu1-60x68b. Caradco was bought out by Jeld-wen. I will have pictures to post a little later today.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
John

Thanks for posting, John! If you're looking for a keyed outside lock, take a look at our 82-306. This looks like something you could use. Take a look and see what you think. You may also want to see our 82-020, if you're looking to replace your interior handle. Do the dimensions of the 82-020 match your existing handle set?
A home owner says:
It looks like this lock will fit my door, but I have a question about it. Can you turn the tail piece from the inside of the door without the key in the outside, IE will the internal locking mechanism still work with this on the outside of the door?

Thanks,
John

Yes, you should be able to activate the lock using the inside lever without there needing to be a key in the outside cylinder.
