I'm afraid that is not one of our part numbers; you may have us confused with another company. If you want, please take some pictures of the hardware in question and we will try to find a good match. I will also need dimensions, including hole spacing. Thanks!
A home owner from Estero Florida says:
The opening on the side of the door is 3/4 X 7 1/8
The latch opening is 1/2 X 7/8
The door thickness is 1 5/8
I am trying to get a key type entrance from the outside of the house.
At the present time if i leave may house through the patio i can't lock the door
Thanks

We're having a hard time finding a replacement for this lock. The trouble is the door thickness. I can't seem to find anything for a 1-5/8" thick door. Can you confirm that measurement? We will continue our search in the meantime. Thank you!
