SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Need a replacement handle and opening mechanism.

A quick learner from Wadsworth, Ohio says:
This window is from 2008 or so. The handle doesn't fit in the mechanism well anymore and it looks like both the male hex end and female end of mechanism is worn. Can you recommend a replacement where the handle will lock in and work better? The handle number looks like OP-05-7810 and the mechanism looks like OP-05-7564. Thanks

Sure! If only the handle is worn, you could consider our 39-226 hex spline replacement handle. If the operator is worn, you may need a new operator entirely. If you're in for a quick fix, you could consider wrapping the hex spline on the old handle with tape to pack it out. I've done this before in the past and it worked surprisingly well.

Ok, well I want to replace the handle and operator. What part numbers should those be?

Gotcha. There are a couple different possibilities. I would start with the 39-329 and 39-330. Carefully compare our pictures and measurements to your own operator to confirm that they match. You would also need a new handle, since these operators use a different style spline. See the 39-205.
