Mounting screws for patio door lock

A handy person from Mesa AZ says:
I will be ordering Product Code: 82-244 mortise lock, however I am looking for the screws to mount this to the frame of the door. The old unit seemed to have 2 posts that I could screw a machined screw into, however both posts have been damaged and are not useable. Is there another way that this lock is secured inside of the frame of the door or can I get the replacement screws and posts for inside the door frame?

I'm not sure what you mean when you refer to the post. Take a look at the 62-022 , which is used for wood applications, as well as the 70-087 . Both are used with 8-32 threaded machine screws. See if this is what you can use to repair you door. I would also try a hardware store in your area to see it they can help. Finally, there is the possibility that the 82-244 is not the right replacement. We can confirm if you show us a photo of your old part.
