Outside and inside storm door turn handles

A quick learner from Virginia says:
I have a Cole Sewell storm door (registration number 12099896017 0138) and the outside turn handle needs replacing. It measures roughly 6 1/2 inches tall, 1 1/2 inches wide and the screws are about 5 1/2 inches apart. The inside turn knob is working and measures about 3 1/2 inches tall, 1 inch wide and the screws are about 2 inches apart. Do both parts need to be replaced or just the outside knob? Part number 40-150 looks like a match for the inside knob but I wanted to make sure. I'm still looking for a match for the outside turn knob. Thanks so much. Gianina Chappell

Looking at your picture, it seems that the spring may be shot. The spring is actually located in the inside handle, so replacing that by itself could fix your problem. See our 40-150 as a possible match. If you do want an entire handle set, you could consider our 40-152 or 40-058. I'm afraid Cole Sewell is no longer in business, so we can't supply an exact match, but look these parts over and see how well they match up.
