Outer handle keeps slipping out

A handy person from New York says:
I just purchased the 40-150 inside handle but the outer handle keeps slipping out after a few pulls. I'm not sure if you have a thicker spindle or if I need to get the 40-160 set.

Dave from SWISCO responded:
It sounds like your spindle could be too short. You could try and install some type of packing in both handles before installing the lock set. That might help keep the spindle "centered" between the two handles. If not, take a look at our 40-187. Could that fix the problem?
