patio door handle and/or locking mechanism

A home owner from Mineola NY says:
just bought an apartment with an old patio door. The black bar part of the handle falls off when pulling on the handle, so i was hoping to get a new handle instead of replacing the whole door.

Thanks for posting. Please see our 82-001 patio door lock. Could this be what you need? Carefully compare it with your own to confirm.
A professional from CA says:
Take the handle off. Squirt some strong glue into the pockets that hold the ends of the wood. Put it back on. Wrap a ribbon or something tightly around the handle till it dries.
