Hi,

I need to replace some patio/french door (UPVC) handles. I've tried looking for an identical replacement but I can't find anything of a suitable size. Here's the measurements as best as I can determine:

All centres, e.g. lock centre, spindle centre, etc.

Lock to Spindle - 92mm
Top screw to bottom screw - 159mm
Top screw to spindle - 26mm
Bottom screw to spindle - 133mm
Plate length - 204mm

I presume then that this is equivalent to a 92mm PZ with 160mm fixings.

Am I right to assume that as long as the PZ size is correct I should be able to drill new screw holes myself, taking care that the handle covers the original screw holes of course?

I think I've sorted this out now. I've removed the gearbox and was able to determine that there's nothing stopping me drilling a replacement hole for the upper screw, i.e. there is no metal in the way. The handle is indeed obsolete so choosing a replacement requiring at least one new screw hole is the only way forwards. Another option is to use a universal replacement - you only need to ensure that the spindle centre to lock centre (PZ) matches and you can then attach a backplate to the door without having to change the screw positions. Yale do the following:

If you need to adjust the PZ there's a VERSA handle which can do this.
