Sliding door double hook lockset replacement

A landlord from Virginia Beach says:
Hello, have a slider manufactured by Chesapeake Window Products. Item listed as Newcastle XT SGD P.L.# 070-066. Has an AAMA Certification. No key lock outside.

This is in our rental property, and local locksmith said he can not get the replacement lockset. The lever on the door is not doing anything. Unfortunately I am not there to pull the set out and give you more info or measure it. It is a silver doublehook and looks just like your 82-238. If you can also let me know if I should get any additional parts, please do.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best,
Chris

Hey, Chris. I agree, our 82-238 looks like a good match. I'm afraid I cannot guarantee that it will work, though. The only way to be sure that it will work is to carefully compare our pictures and dimensions to your own lock and measurements.

I need to repair the double hook mortise lock on a sliding glass door manufactured by Certain Teed Corp.

I believe that I have the same problem as the other Chris on June 5, 2015, i.e., the anti-slam button broke off. Did he purchase your part # 82-238 as a replacement for the Newcastle XT SGD P.L.# 070-066 and did it work as a suitable substitute?

Thank you in advance.

If you remove the screws holding the mortise lock to the frame (all 4) the lock will still be held in place by the handle screws. Depending on how the anti-slam button broke, either stuff something in the hole to push what's left far enough in that it allows the lock to work, or lay a thin piece of plastic or metal over the button. Just make sure that the button is completely depressed. Replace the plate over the lock. The lock should now work as normal except that it might break when slammed if you leave it in the locked position. this is not a very bad thing because you were going to replace it anyway. There is also a small risk of damaging the keeper, so just be a little more careful. Many similar locks don't have that feature at all.
