Patio door handle with centered interior latch

A home owner from Wakefield, RI says:
I have received my patio door handle 82-074. My current handle has the interior door latch in the center of the handle whereas the new handle has the door latch below center and will not work. All the other holes for attaching the handle fit. In looking thru your catelog I found a non key handle 82-069 that has the interior door latch centered on the handle. I do not use the exterior key lock so my question is whether the 82-069 is a workable replacement for my present handle? If so i will place an order.

I agree, the 82-069 may be your best bet. It has the same dimensions as the 82-074 and has an adjustable thumb lever to boot (it can work in the top, center, or bottom position), though it does not have a key lock.
