key lock for vinyl sliding door

A home owner from Moundville says:
I would like to install a key lock in a vinyl sliding door. It only locks from the inside right now. The brand on the handle says Pella. Could you help me with purchasing the correct lock? I watched your installation on Youtube, but I wasn't sure if that lock would work for me.

Thanks for posting, LeAnn. Could you show us a picture of the handle set you have now? That will help us determine whether we have something that can work for you. Thank you!
A quick learner from Moundville, Alabama says:
Thanks for the help. Sorry my handle is dirty. Mechanics use this door.

Thanks for getting back to us! Your handles are cleaner than most, actually. Looks like your handle set is in good condition overall, in which case you may just need the key cylinder by itself. See our 82-310. You will need to drill or knock out the key hole in your outside handle.
