Replace Patio Door Handles

A home owner from Tucson, Arizona says:
We have two patio doors with handles like your 82-002 and my wife would rather have a lever latch like your 82-032. What would you suggest as replacement handles for these doors?

Dave Sr. from SWISCO responded:
It's very difficult converting a handle set like you describe. You would need to cover the cut out in the handle set with a metal plate of some kind, and then install a surface-mount handle like the 82-005. The 82-032 won't work because it requires a mortise lock to work, which is not something you would be able to install on your door. The 82-005 is similar, though. See what you think.
