Hi there!

Take a look at our 82-030 handle set with 3-15/16" hole center spacing, along with the 82-310 key lock, which is sold separately. You can adapt the 82-310 to the outside handle if you want keyed access. Our blog post here  will walk you through this process. Look this over and see what you think.
