Thanks for contacting us, Joe! Have you seen our 83-003 Patio Screen Handle Assembly? Do you think this might work for you? Compare its dimensions to your own hardware and let me know!

I don't need the latching mechanism so I guess that can be removed. Also, any idea how to remove the screws on my old handle ( see photo). Thanks, Joe

Looking at your pictures, it appears that your original handle has been riveted on. You will have to drill these rivets out of the handle before you can remove it. Normally, you would use a 1/8" drill bit. You can look at our 75-506, should you need one.

For the new handle, you can use our new 33-006, #42 Pop Rivet, to install it. You may also want to look at our 75-012 Professional Rivet Tool.
