Dear Sir or Madam,

We have a pool house with two old sliding doors that, based on your pictures, look like Acorn locks. I was looking for keys as the keys have been lost, but would prefer to replace the locks entirely. Do you have locks that would fit in the hole designed for these Acorn locks?

I appreciate any help you can give me.

Hi Mary;

Yes i do have lock cylinders complete with new keys for sliding door flush handle sets.

The locks are manufactured by Fasco and are still used today by many different patio door manufacturers.

To be sure, we would need to check if the center to center distance for the screws holding the handle on is 6-1/2 inches.

This is important because there is another very similar manufacturer of locks that look almost the same except their center to center distance is 6-5/8 inches. They need a slightly taller hole cut in the doors.

You can order new lock cylinders and keys or you can order complete new patio door locks with the cylinders already installed and ready to go.

The wooden handles are still available they just have to be ordered separately if you need them.

Let me know if you still need them and i will send you an estimate
