Hex handle for skylight

A quick learner from Beverly, MA says:
We are missing some crank handles for our Velux roof windows. They need a crank that is hex shaped, 1/2 inch on the inside and 3/4 when measuring the outside of the crank. 39-224 says it is 5/16", not sure what this measurement is for, inside or outside?

The hardware store thinks this Velux window was retrofitted with aftermarket hardware as Velux is generally not Hex shaped. Thanks, Amy

Thank you for your patience in this matter, Amy. We're still researching this handle, but need a bit more information. Could I see a few pictures of the operator itself? I would especially need to see the operator bore. Thank you!
A quick learner from Beverly, MA says:
I am attaching a picture of the bore, hope this helps! The skylight is an older Velux roof window.

Thanks, Amy

I need the exact handle the person is holding in the photo. My Velux skylight operator has a male 1/2 hex which has a female hook with set screw fastened to it. I want to replace the hook with a handle since the skylight is easily reached by hand.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you,

Ted

A home owner from Maine says:
Thank you Donna. The posted operator with the hex is exactly what I have. So how do I order one of these hex handles?

I need a hook that will attach to this style of hex to use a pole with hook to open skylight that customer cant reach
