Sliding Door Replacement Handles needed

by Mike

I am trying to replace two sliding glass doors that are difficult to open.
Hands are getting too old to get into these small places

Can you recommend a replacement handle

Thank You very much!

Thanks Mike;

If the doors are getting hard to open I would definitely check the rollers first. Look for evidence of scratches on the bottom track.

This will happen if rollers seize up and start dragging along the track.

With good rollers these doors should be easy enough to open with your baby finger, they should not require much force at all.

The insert style of lock you have cannot be replaced by any other style. I understand your concerns because with this lock the night lock switches are tiny and difficult to operate.

You already have the best handles which is great. Without these handles you can easily grab the door to close it and then accidentally close the door on your fingers because they are so close to the edge of the door.
