Swisco latch, but longer

A quick learner from Michigan says:
I have a sliding glass door which uses a lock similar to Swisco's 82-248. EXCEPT: the neck on my latch is 1-1/2", but yours only reaches 7/8". That's not enough to lock my door.
Do you have a different, longer latch?
If not, do you have a keeper that could bridge the gap?
I'm trying to avoid cutting up my door.

Thanks for posting. I'm afraid we do not have a latch hook that long, I believe it was discontinued. If you are looking to replace your handle set with something like our 82-003 or 82-055, you will need to reuse your old latch hook. I am sorry we cannot offer an easier solution.
