slider door lock

A quick learner says:
I am having a terrible time finding a door handle with lock for a sliding glass patio door. It measures 3 1/2" OC. The door's thickness is 1 1/2", not 1". I tried the handle and lock for 1" and it would not lock.

Thanks for contacting us. You may be able to use something like our 82-004, which is also made for 1" thick doors, but you would have to reuse your inside latch and screws so that it can work in the thicker door. That might be your only recourse.
