Screen door handles giving me headache
(Colton, Washington, USA)
3-7/16" Center Screen door handle or pull
I just reached the end of the internet. I cannot find a replacement part for my 60s aluminum screen door handle and latch. It's driving me to drink and I rarely drink, certainly not at lunch!!
I came across you and thought, oh maybe, maybe, he can help.
The inside piece -- the plastic part with two visible holes on the picture -- is 4-inch in length and 1 7/8 inches wide. The holes are center to center 3 7/16 inches. The screen door frame width is 1/2 inch thick.
The frame width is 1 3/4 inches on the outside.
The frame width is 1/7/16 inches on the inside.
This is the area of the frame where the handle and latch go.
The latch is a hook type. That little white piece slides up and down to connect with the hook on the frame.
The hook on the frame is screwed onto the frame. It's not indented into the frame.
I don't object to changing the type used, if it's not too hard for this widow to do. I've been learning a lot about tools!
I've found 3-inch center hole one's but drilling will result in the current holes being way too close to the new holes.
Please, do you have any suggestions? Right now, you're the only guy in my life and I'm hoping you have the answer. I locked the whiskey away in the cupboard to avoid being tempted.
Thanks so much. My email, btw, is firstname.lastname@example.org
