Replacement Door Handle

A handy person from Manchester, MD says:
Hello, I need a replacement door handle with the lock that clips onto the frame. I believe the 82-060 is what I need. I attached a pic that doesn't show the existing holes at a 3" spacing, but I am assuming I can drill the holes wherever I need. Can you review the pic and advise your opinion before I order please?

Thank you

Thanks for posting! I'm having a little trouble seeing what your current hole spacing is. It looks like it might be around 5-7/8", but I could be wrong. Could you confirm?

Also, do you still have your original handle on hand? There's no reason to drill new holes if we can find a handle set that will work with your door as it is now. If you can upload a few pictures of your original handle, we can see if we can find a closer match. Let me know!
A quick learner from Manchester, MD says:
I do not have the original door handle anymore, however, the original hole spacing is 5 7/8". I drilled the middle one for a different door handle that did not have a lock on it and I added a seperate lock. Those dimensions are 4 7/8" between the top two holes and then the bottom two are 1". Selling the house and the buyer wants a handle put on with the lock.

Thanks for getting back to me. I think you should take a look at our 82-005 Surface Mount Sliding Door handle Assembly, whose screw holes are 4-7/8" center-to-center. Do you think that this could be a better option?
