SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Handle won't connect

A home owner from Wisconsin says:
(Preface: I am not homeowner saavy nor handy so I apologize if I don't know/use all the correct terminology)

We bought a home and none of the handles will connect to the base. When we open a window we have to stick the handle into the port, turn it to open the window, but the handle will not stay into the port and just falls off. I do not know what parts I need to buy to replace/fix the issue. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Hello! Sounds like either the handle stem is worn out or the socket in the operator is damaged. If it's just the handle, you could consider our 39-226 as a replacement. If the socket in the operator is damaged, however, you will need to replace the whole operator.
