I'm afraid we have no record as to whether the 40-049 can replace a Pado 0794 storm door lock. Can you show me a few pictures of your existing hardware? Can you also give me detailed measurements? That will enable us to confirm. Thanks!

This is a pado lock 0794 made in Brazil
Length of lock is 5 3/4"
Face plate 7 1/2"
Depth 1 1/2"
Side attachment holes are 6 1/2" apart.
If you don't have this lock what is the replacement?

I checked the measurements on the mortise lock that comes with the 40-049. The body of the lock (without the face plate) is 5-13/16", while the depth is 1-9/16". Finally, the back set is 7/8". These measurements seem close to your measurements. What do you think?
