Exterior Pull Handle option

A home owner from USA says:
Hi: My patio door has a lock that looks like a 82-002W. I would like to add a handle on the outside of the door to make it easier for my 80 year old hands. If I purchased a 80.002W is there a way to add an outside handle to it, or to modify it by "drilling out" the tapped portion and adding a screw that would pass through the inside and outside handles? Your thoughts and comments will be appreciated, Dave

Unfortunately, they do not make outside handles for this style of lock. You might be able to install a patio door pull above or below the lock on the patio door rail. See if you can adapt our 88-001, 88-002 or the 88-009.
