Replace hardware on sliding glass doors

A home owner from Winter Springs, FL says:
We are looking to replace hardware on our sliding glass door and want to purchase the Surface Mount Handle Set, 6-9/16" Product Code: 82-036, I included pictures of our door, the 6 9/16 is the correct size, i am not sure if the thickness of the door and the double hook locking will work on out sliding glass door. Can you let me know or send me an install PDF. Will this set work and do i need to modify my door in any way?

Thanks
Randy

Hey, Randy. I don't recommend replacing your lock (which appears similar to our 82-002) with with a completely new lock of a different type. I don't think it will work. If anything, you could just consider buying a pull. Look at our 88-001 or 88-002 and see what you think.
