Sliding Door-Auxilliary Lock

A home owner from USA says:
I am looking for an auxiliary lock for a sliding glass door. I believe it is PPG Herculite door based on the tempered glass markings. It would have been installed around 1980. I am looking for the hardware that fits the auxiliary lock, please see attached picture.

It is a pocket style door. I already installed a Security U shaped security lock, but it fastens into drywall, so I am uncomfortable with its strength.

If you do not carry the requested hardware, could you refer me to someone who does?

I could not find the security bolt that you show in your photos. It might no longer be available. We do carry a type of secondary lock like our 82-051 that you might be able to install on your door. It comes with different keepers depending on the installation. Personally, I like the 80-006 bar, but it is your choice. See what you think.
A home owner from Florida says:
Thank you for your suggestions. The door with the missing bolt is a pocket style door, so the 80-006 bar will not work. The sample bolt was from a different door. I will look at the secondary lock 82-051. Thank you.
