Handle & Lock for Jalousie Front Door

A handy person from Franklin, Ohio says:
Recently this jalousie door handle / lock broke after 37 years. I was pulling the inside lever in, as usual, and getting ready to slide the locking bar into position, when the inside lever pulled all the way off. I was able to get it back together enough to get it to 'kind of' work. I can get it to awkwardly close / lock by pulling the lever up and in. However, I don't know how long this will work. I see there is a piece of what I call spring metal as part of the inside mechanism. It is at the bottom of image 3881 for the purposes of the photos. When putting it back together, I have put the piece of spring metal around the square shaft. I am hoping someone at your location will be familiar with this type of mechanism and will be able to tell me if it can be repaired or of a replacement. Thank you.

Thanks for writing in. I'm afraid we don't carry the specific component you're pointing out; you may be better off replacing the entire handle set. This is a Cole Sewell handle set that is no longer made, but you can consider either our 40-130 or 40-131, or maybe even our 40-152. Look these over and let me know what you think.
