Crank handle for Anderson Window

A quick learner from Caifornia says:
I have the typical crank handles for my Anderson casement windows, however, I just had new stone countertop put in, in my kitchen and there isn't much room to turn the cranks. In order to open the window I have to turn the crank half way , then remove it, put it back in so that I can turn a half turn again

Could a folding handle solve this issue? See our 39-301 and let me know what you think.
A quick learner says:
That is exactly what I was looking at. will that work? Can I fold it out straight from the shaft that it attaches to and turn it so that it basically turns in the shaft in a minuscule circle?

Yes, since the 39-301 is a folding handle you can turn it at odd angles that regular, non-folding handles won't allow. I cannot guarantee that it will work for you in this case since I don't know how your countertop will interfere with its operation, but I think it's a good place to start.
