Patio door handle

A home owner from USA says:
I want to replace the lock on my door so that it locks from the outside. I think I might have a frenchwood or Perma door. It is 1 inch thick. See pictures attached.

Can I use the 82-317 and the 82-043 on this door?

No, the 82-317 and 82-043 are specifically meant for Andersen doors. This is an old Air Control/Keller patio door that is no longer manufactured. We have always replaced these patio door locks with our 82-005 replacement lock. If you need a key lock for the outside, I recommend our 82-306. Take a look and see if you can get this hardware to work.
A professional from California says:
I've used 82-033 with good results. You could use 82-306 or just add 82-310 by knocking out the plug. The existing mortise lock is a good design. It rarely breaks.
A home owner from Colorado says:
Thanks for the info fellas! Another question for you. if I were to replace the handle with the 82-005, I do not see where I can insert the latch piece in the current door. See the photo of the edge of the door; there is not room to input the latch. There is just a small oblong. (The one filled with insulation.

Therefore, I am thinking I should maybe get the 82-310 or 82-306. On both those parts, I see the long arm that turns via the key. Do you sell just the latch piece that would go on that long arm and fit into the hole on the frame?

The 82-005 is a surface mounted patio door locking handle. It is not a mortise type latch like yours was originally. Your patio was made by Keller industries which is no longer in business, and so your lock is no longer available. When I was replacing the handles I always used the 82-005. It comes with a surface mounting keeper/striker which you install into the jamb on the side of the door. If you need a key cylinder, you can consider our 82-306.
