Help Finding Sunroom Door Handle

My sunroom door handle is broken and I can't find a replacement anywhere. I've uploaded photos of the broken hardware as well as pictures of the sunroom door.

shawnbat,

Welcome to the forums.

Find the contractor who installed the sunroom (or at least who the sunroom mfgr. is) and go to them to get a new lockset. The door is drilled for exactly that lockset and anything that you try to replace it with is not going to line up as far as the holes.

Lefty's advice is right on... they would be the first option to try. If they won't respond, this one might be pretty close:

Thanks XSleeper. I think that might work. I'm going to purchase it and see.

Cool Two years later

I just had to replace a handle on a similar door. This was extremely helpful. I have another door on the opposite side of my sunroom. I wanted to doors to match, so I kept the old one and just replaced the latch, which was all that was broken. What would we do without the internet? Probably would have had to install new doors.

Smile 2 years after this post the product is still available.

Have been waiting over a week for the company that built my sunroom to have a tech call me. They said my lock was "proprietory" and they were the only ones that could replace it.

My sunroom is 16 years old and the door handle broke. Well I ran one more search on the internet out of desperation and found your thread Clicked on the pictures and the specs and its exactly what I needed. Thank you "so much".
