patio door lock, etc

A quick learner says:
I have found the replacement mortise lock for my patio door, #82-214.

The outside handle pull is keyed (we've never had the key for it!) and I'd like to replace with NON-KEYED. The inside handle is fine, except for the turning lever which seems a little flimsy, but might be ok with a new lock. Wondering if it's more efficient to replace the handle set altogether, or try parts first.

What would you recommend?

Thanks for writing in. There is certainly a decent chance that the thumb lever is only flimsy due to the mortise lock failing. In which case you could just replace your outside pull with something like our 82-042. If you want to consider a full handle set though, see our 82-032 or 82-033, depending on the coloration you prefer.

Thank you!

Would patio door handles #82-035, #82-041 or #82-069 be options with this mortise lock if I decided to replace the entire handle set with a different style?

Yep! Every handle set you just named is fully compatible with your mortise lock. I am confident that they'd all work on your door.

A quick learner says:
Everything fit well EXCEPT the mortise lock engaging the "keeper". The thumb lever does not fit snugly in its slot on the old handle, and may be the reason the lock hook does not extend fully. Next step is to order a new handle set!

I purchased the outside pull #82-042 online - it works great.

1. Is this the same pull pictured in the handle set #82-069?
2. Is is also compatible with with #82-035?
3. Can I purchase either of those INDOOR handles SEPARATELY, rather than returning the outside pull?

Hey, Linda! Thanks for reaching out to us again. I just got back from vacation and am trying to catch up with my inbox.

I'm glad to hear the 82-042 worked well for you. This is, indeed, the same outer handle that comes with the 82-069 (except the 82-042 isn't available in white). It is also compatible with the 82-035 set. I actually use it quite often when a customer has the 82-035 on their door and want a black colored exterior pull.

Unfortunately, the inside handles you see in our handle sets are not available separately. We are only able to provide these as kits. I apologize for the inconvenience.
