Thank you for posting. Looking at your image, it appears you have a handle similar to our 82-034. If you agree, then I think you should look at our 82-226 or 82-227 mortise locks, which usually accompany this handle set. Which one do you think would work better for you?
A quick learner from mortise lock says:
the mortise lock 4-5/8" - item# 82-226 is a bit too long(about 1/2 or 1/4 inch)for the lock hole on door panel. could anyone help by suggesting which size would be a little bit shorter than the 4-5/8" ? the width fits in the hole. its just too long from top to bottom

In that case, take a look at our 82-218 and see if that might be better.

Be sure to also look at our new tutorial video that shows how to install the 82-034 Legacy handle set, including how to install the mortise lock!
