Ouside Lock for American Craftsman 50 Series Door handle

A home owner from NH says:
I have an American Craftsman 50 Series Gliding Patio Door that only locks from the inside. I'd like to add the ability to lock it from the inside. If I purchase a the 82-044 exterior handle and the 82-309 lock, will that work with my existing interior handle and mortice lock? The door is 1 5/8" thick and the mounting screws are 3 15/16" apart.

See attached photos. This is the stock American Craftsman handle set.

For the American Craftsman 50 Series, we recommend using our 82-044 exterior handle and 82-309 key lock. This should will work on your 1-5/8" door. See our video on installing key lock for further information.
