sliding glass door key lock:

A quick learner from Santa Maria, CA says:
I have a (white) JELD-WEN sliding glass door from Home Depot. The existing handle is 5" between the screw holes. What will I need to change it to a key lock?

Take a look at our 82-081 , I believe you could use this handle set in your door. If you don't want to replace the whole thing, you would need to drill out a hole in the outside handle to accommodate our 82-310 key lock.
