A quick learner from USA says:
What single arm operator works with the Truth Folding Handle with Cover, 39-375?

The 39-375 can work with various Truth operators, though I'm not sure which one can work for you. If you were to take a couple pictures of your operator removed from the window we can recommend something.
A quick learner says:
Here's the old arm, also made by Truth. Need one like this that accepts the folding handle like 39-375.

Thanks!

Thank you! No, I'm afraid the 39-375 will not work for you. Your operator's cover is actually built into the part itself and cannot be replaced. Our 39-205 should be able to work for you though. It's a folding crank handle with an 11/32" spline.
A quick learner says:
Sorry, we've been through this before. We purchased a 39-205 folding handle and it does not fit our application.

Please just answer my original question and provide a list of the single arm operators that work with the Truth Folding Handle with Cover, 39-375.

Thank you.

The 39-375 is used on the Truth "Encore" Tango operator. These are a newer style operator made by Truth that have a different type of track and hardware than what your operator uses. You will not be able to use it in your window.

You have an older model which does not take a nesting cover. I'm actually shocked the 39-205 did not work for you. It was made for operators just like yours. Do you have a spline size different than 11/32"?
A quick learner says:
Our window has an interior shutter that still hits the folded handle. We need the narrower handle and housing of the 39-375. Can we change the track on the window to work with the new operator?

Ah, I understand now. This is a pretty common problem that a lot of older casement windows encounter when new shutters have been installed. It's frustrating, but unless the shutters were designed with that specific window in mind your options will be very limited. Changing to the 39-375 isn't just a matter of getting a new track, but you'd also have to alter the sill and trim. The only other solution that comes to mind is our 11/32" 39-102 T-handle. This may give you the clearance you need.
