Hey, William. Unfortunately, that patent number doesn't really give me anything specific when I cross-reference it. Could I see a few pictures of your existing patio door handle, along with dimensions? That will help us determine the best possible replacement for you. Thanks!

Thanks for contacting us! After further research, we believe our 82-225 is a possible match for this patent number. Check it out and see if you agree.

I needed the same patent no lock for my door saw your post clicked on the 82-225 part it looked like it would for so for the 8 dollars I bought 4 of them lets call it a life time supply considering the first one last 30 years. When I got the shipment I looked at it and saw the lever and thought they shipped me the wrong part. Went back on the website clicked on the part and sure enough it had a lever with a black plastic knob I thought how did I not see that the first time. Oh well I pulled of the plastic cap and cut of the lever with a hack saw then ground it on the bench grinder you may find you want to shim it on the two ends as it is not as thick as the original piece I glued two small shim washers on each end to take up the play it works fine I think the hook that comes up and hooks on the jamb plate may be slightly longer as there is a little more free play when the door is locked. I also use a security bar so it doesnt bother me that much
