SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

replacing broken handle

A quick learner from Florida says:
I had a handle break on my sliding glass door. I was just about to order 82-073 but my door is only 1" thick Will this one not work because it says 1-3/8 to 1-5/8 could I just get some shorter screws?

You may be able to just use shorter screws, assuming you also re-use the locking mechanism, but I can't say for sure. Keep in mind that this lock set is mostly used on a vinyl patio door. If your door is not vinyl, it will likely not work.
