Hello, I was looking to replace the top locks for our sliding glass doors. Could someone assist me in locating the part?

Thank you for your patience during this busy season. I'm sorry that we're only getting to you just now!

Unfortunately, your secondary patio lock used on Acorn patio doors was discontinued back in around 2012. Acorn is also out of business, so there aren't many options available on the market. Their doors were designed pretty specifically so using generic hardware can be tricky.

That said, take a look at our 82-051 lock and check its dimensions. I fear it may be too wide for your door, but it might be worth considering all the same. Also take a look at the 80-006 lock bar. This could be an alternative lock for your door if all else fails. I personally like this style, but I'm old school and this is what we used back in the day.
