Clamp style latch sliding glass door handle set with a key?

A quick learner from Pasadena, MD says:
Hi- I've talked to several companies and no one has helped me so I figured I will try yours. I'm looking to get a key lock for this set up, preferably a keypad lock. Is that possible or with the clamp style latch can I only get a key lock cylinder to install? Do I have to change my door jamb and whole handle set to the traditional hook type latch if I want a keypad lock? Please respond. Any advice will help. I've been trying to figure this out for a month and need something installed ASAP. Thank you

Thanks for your patience with us. Your handle looks similar to our 82-082 handle which uses our 82-310 key cylinder. You will need to punch/drill out the key plug in the exterior handle and cut the key cylinder tail to the proper length for your door. There are some related videos I have placed on the upper right hand side of this page I would like for you to take a look at. See if this can help you.

Where have you seen a keypad lock for a sliding glass door?
That sounds like a good idea, but I've never seen that as an option.
