caradco patio door locking mechanism

door installed in 1998. Currently latch catches but then slips out after hand is removed from latching switch. It seems to be bent. The Swisco mortise lock - code #82-226 looks like the one on my door. But I may need to replace the handle set. Well, not the entire set as I like the wooden handle I now have but I may need the little latch that engages the mortise. The handle set that matches the above mortise is #82-034 but it looks like a brass finish that I really don't like. Can you help me. Is this the most likely match for a caradco door from the late 1990's

Thanks for posting! These are some good ideas, actually. However, you may want to also look at our 82-035 patio door handle set and compare it to your current hardware.
