SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Silverline replacement handle and lock

A home owner from USA says:
Hello, I am hoping you can help. I have a Silverline patio door that was installed in 1994-5. The handle and locking mechanism were removed and are now missing. I need replacements. I have attached some pictures of inside and outside to help you understand my situation. Would you be able to tell me what parts I need.

Thanks for the pictures! This is actually a mystery. Normally, Silverline Vinyl patio doors used our 82-035 handle with an 82-218 mortise latch and 89-020 keeper. However, your door looks like it had the 82-003 handles set installed. Could it be someone changed it over from the original lock set some time in the past? Do you think you could use either of these? Also, do any of your neighbors have the same door? If they do, I would be interested in seeing photos of it so we can determine what may have been originally installed.
A home owner from New Jersey says:
Thanks for the quick response. Perhaps the door is not a Silverline, but the 82-003 looks like the one I removed a few years ago because of a problem with the locking mechanism. At the time I tried to find a replacement but couldn't get one to fit, so I gave up and now the old parts are lost somewhere in my garage. Lucky for me I found Swisco. My one neighbor just got a new door but described the previous handle and it seems to be the 82-003. I will place an order today. Thanks so very much for your help.
