Slider door - Conversion to keyed lock

A contractor from Seattle says:
Howdy. I have a currently un-keyed Sash Industries PT. 1963 slider door handle set on my patio door. I would like to convert it to a keyed handle. The attached photos should help describe my setup. Would a Key Lock #82-310 be a good route to go? Also, is the 82-310 potentially able to be re-keyed by a locksmith to match existing exterior doors?

Thanks for your time and expertise,

Thanks for posting, Karl. I agree, our 82-310 looks like the way to go. I'm not sure how easy it can be re-keyed, though. I think you should have the locksmith take a look at it and see what they can do.

A quick check would be to see if your current key fits into the 82-310. If it doesn't fit, there's no chance of re-keying.
