Pella Patio Door lock lever

A quick learner from Wilmette, IL says:
I have a 1977 wood 4' Pella sliding door. The small flip up/down lock lever is broken. The remainder of the handle is intact. Where can I just buy the lever that sticks out of the handle and activates the lock? Some of the Pella levers are $25 + and this thing is worth about $0.50.

Thank you for posting. Could you be referring to something like our 83-115 Pella Latch? If not, can you send a few pictures of the lever in question? That will help us find a replacement.
A quick learner from WILmette, IL says:
Thanks, but no, the 83-115 is for a screen door. I'm looking for one for our sliding patio door. I will take a photo or two and send tomorrow. I have them on two other doors.

Great! Let me know.
A quick learner from WILMETTE, IL says:
OK, ATTACHED ARE PHOTOS OF THE LATCH I NEED TO REPLACE AND THE LATCH I NEED TO REPLACE IT WITH.

PLEASE NOTE THE DOORS SLIDE IN OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS, SO THE NEW LATCH MUST BE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HANDLE.

Ah, I see. I think you should look at either our 82-252 or 82-253. Now, I'm not sure which one you need, as I cannot see the tail piece, but carefully examine them and let me know which is a better match.

Tom,
Well, my wife says she needs this item, so I ordered it today.
Thanks for your help.
