We have many varieties of hardware that match what you describe, but without knowing what you had originally I'm not sure what to recommend. Could you show us the space where this hardware is to install? Can you also give us some measurements? The most important measurements to get now I think would be the spacing between the installation holes for each part. Make sure to measure from the center of each hole, not from their edges. Thanks!

I'm not sure exactly what to recommend but h ere are a few suggestions for hardware used with some similar types of vinyl patio doors. Start by looking at our 82-035 handle set or 82-074 handle set with key. Also look at our 82-218 mortise lock and 89-020 keeper. Carefully compare these parts to your patio door and dimensions, especially the hole spacing in the door and the jamb where the keeper would be installed.
