Replace old PADO lock and handle

A quick learner from New Orleans, LA says:

I need to replace this whole thing. I replaced the handles a while back b/c they would come loose. They're doing that again as well as the 'catch' piece that goes in and out (I don't know the technical term) to keep the door closed gets stuck in the hole lately. Also the deadbolt has begun to have problems. Some days you really have to work at it to get the key to turn. I was looking at 40-097 but worried if my screws/holes would line up.

Also, what's the return policy if it doesn't fit?

Hello! I agree, our 40-097 looks like a great option for your old door. The 49-183 is also worth considering. 

Truth be told your old PADO set hasn't been made in a long time and neither set mentioned is going to be exact, but they're absolutely going to be your best choice. I think they'll even work just fine as-is, but you should still brace yourself for the possibility that some alterations may be necessary. Redrilling new holes should be the worst thing you have to expect. We also have detailed dimensions for each product that you can use as a reference.

As for our return policy, you can see ours here .
