different dimensions to handle needed

A quick learner from Salinas, CA says:
The dimensions of the sliding door handle I need to replace seem a bit hard to find. I can attach pictures. How critical are the dimensions? I want it to work.

The box part of my handle is 1"x1" . Most of the ones I find online appear to be 1"x3/4" or 1"x5/8".

I have not found 1x1. I get the distance between the screws as 4 15/16", and the handle is 7 1/4" long. The distance of the handle out from the surface of the sliding door is 2 1/4".

Your item 82 005 does not appear to be the correct dimensions. Do you have a handle with the dimensions I need?

The lock manufacturer has changed the profile of this part, likely in an effort to save on material. Our 82-005 hole spacing and length matches your lock, which are the two critical dimensions, but not the 1" x 1" box or the distance from the door. If you want to keep the old handle and just replace the internal lock, see if our 82-225 matches yours. Otherwise, you may not be able to find an exact match for your old handle.
