Broken 83-034

Hello, we replaced a broken 83-034 within the last year. The sliding screen was sticking a bit and a friend snapped the handle of the new one off.i know I need to make sure my screen slides better, but is there a direct replacement that is stronger?

The manufacturer doesn't really make this handle set in varying strengths. It breaking shouldn't be an issue; I think you should check your rollers to make sure they're sliding properly, as you mentioned. That is the best way to make sure your handle doesn't break again.

Might one of the other models be a suitable replacement?

Hi Sam, We do have a surface mount set, take a look at SWISCO product codes 83-005 and 83-006. See if you have enough room on your door to mount this as well as a place for the keeper. Let us know what you think!
