Window Crank replacement

A home owner from Raleigh, NC says:
The hardware of the window works fine, installed in 2004, my issue is with the crank. Crank will not stay on.

You have an older Pro Drive operator with the 39-226 handle. The problem with these operators is that the black plastic collar wears out over time and will not hold the handle. I would suggest trying a little piece of masking tape or some type of adhesive to keep the handle in place. Alternatively, you could just replace the entire operator with a newer style. If you want to go that route, please send us a picture of the operator out of the window so that we can find a good match.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will try that and will be back if not a workable solution.
