Hey, Rosemary. Looks like your handle set has a surface type latch which catches onto a keeper mounted to the inside door jamb. I don't believe your handle set is still available in this style. We do carry the 40-096 mortise type handle set that looks like yours from the outside, but you would need to drill a hole through the edge of the door for the mortise latch. Look at our 40-035, 40-042, and 40-058. Unlike the 40-096, these function like your old handle, and may be worth considering. See what you think.
