Will locking handle fit 1" thick door

A home owner from Folsom, California says:
Hi there,

I have a ~1" thick aluminum sliding door, with holes 3-15/16 apart and a centered lock hole. I intend to purchase the 82-069 handle, 82-310 lock and key and the 82-218 mortise mechanism. Will the lock and key work with my 1" thick door using the 82-069 handle?

Yes, I believe the hardware you mentioned should work on a 1" thick door. However, you will likely have to cut the length of the spindle tail on the 82-310 key cylinder to get it to work. You might want to talk to a local locksmith and get their perspective, as well.
