Patio Door Key Clearance

A home owner from Santa Ana, CA says:
I'm hoping to add a key lock set, such as your 82-309, to our patio door. However, I'm concerned that once the key lock set is added to the handle, there may not be enough clearance to turn the key. As the attached picture shows, with the door closed the key lock housing, once installed, would sit right next to the door jamb in such a way that I'm concerned that the bow of the key will hit the door jamb as the key is turned. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure if there are any simple solutions for this. The only part we have that may work is our 82-309, which is cut for close clearance. See what you think.
