storm door latch

A handy person from Long Island NY says:
I haven't been able to find this latch/lock. The mechanism doesn't allows us to lock the door. Any help would be great!
Thank you,

Thanks for posting. Take a look at our 82-265 mortise lock to see if that matches up to your part. Be sure to double check dimensions.
A quick learner from Long Island NY says:
Thank you for this, I was looking at this part and all measurements add up. However, I believe I only read about the recessed one, I'm sure you have one that isn't. Last, would this part be all that is needed? As the small lever just spins in circles when we try and lock this door. Thank you!

If the latch is spinning, it's likely because the mortise lock is broken. The lever could be alright. I see you ordered both the handle set and mortise. Try the old handle set with the new mortise lock first. That may be all you need.
