Screen door handles

A home owner from El Paso, IL 61738 says:
I have a sliding screen door as a part of a three door opening to our porch. The screen door has 2 holes on each side for handles but there are no handles. Looking over the options for Anderson doors the handles need a 2 1/8", center to center dimension. I have measured the center to center dimension on the screen door and it measures 2". Do the 2 1/8 handles work with 2" holes

I don't think a handle with a 2-1/8" hole spacing will work with a 2" spacing in your door. Not unless you drill new holes anyway, but a 1/8" is cutting it close and there may be overlap.

Are you sure these are Andersen doors? Is there any other marking or branding on the door that may give a clue? I'm afraid that without seeing the original hardware, we can't say for sure what you have or what can be used.
