    Hi guys,

    Our backdoor patio (backdoor) handle has progressively been getting worse. anytime someone pulls in the door to close, the handle will come off (shown in one of the photos). All we can do right now is jiggle it back in. the door is either a double glazed or triple glazed glass panels. 91447544_3408846075798641_2210496388804902912_n.jpg
    Is there any chance I can fix the handle?

    If not, can anyone identify the handle for me and link me to any sites that would have the same one?.

    any help is appreciated 90920821_225315275336182_3464279629785726976_n.jpg 90798454_885091705274331_4994177079751737344_n.jpg 91190851_849780888832160_7769420530783879168_n.jpg 91467912_514522755903083_2344177314612379648_n.jpg 90994951_223107448751651_5034594113576501248_n.jpg

    Hello Niall, I'm not 100% if you can repair those, if nobody on here answers this then try these https://www.locksonline.co.uk/UPVCHandles.html and you should get an answer. Failing that you can replace the whole thing, unscrew the 2 screws, and pull them off. Measuring the handle to lock distance. See link.

    Oh, I thought it was Ireland with a name like Niall, and the orange part on the flag?

    Hi Niall, don’t bother trying to fix it. Get a replacement for £30.. fitting is very easy simply remove existing screws remove old handles and simple slide new ones back over the existing locking system and refit. To measure the handle size you require is the distance between the two holding screws. No need to change locks . Hope this helps.

    So there is no problem with the locks or anything?
    When we close the door, we have to push the handle up to ensure its closed properly. Is this normal? Will a new handle solve the problem?

    Thanks,
    Niall

    No that’s normal to click the handle up it’s locking the lever lock system on the door.

    Hi Niall, just a quick tip put wd40 on the locking system including the handles frees them up if there a little stiff or tight.
