Want a new part that has a lower profile

A home owner from Palm City Florida says:
Hi

Per out phone conversation the other day I am sending pics because I want to change the handle on the inside of my sliding doors so they have a lower profile since I want to put plantation shutters on the door and the large handles are in the way. The maker of the doors is Florida International. Also the screws are 4 inches apart which they told me to measure when I called. Even if I could get the same kind of handle that is on the outside of the door inside it would be a much lower profile.

Thanks for contacting us. Look at our 82-069 handle. That has an inside handle that projects 1-5/8" from the door. I believe the inside handle you have projects closer to 2" from the door. Also, would it be possible to pack out the door trim around the door to give you more distance for the shutters?

82-032 is 1-1/2".
