Wanted exterior door handle for 1973 boler

Hey All

This is my very first post here. Am looking to buy an exterior door handle set for my old boler. My door is currently being held shut with a cord...LOL...not great security! (thank goodness i have a rottweiler!) Any idea where to find this part?

Much appreciated,

Kitsgal.

Howdy, what kind did you have, the one that is flush with the door or the kind that sticks out? If the second, Scamp carries these, here. The flush ones would be hard to find since they're not made. You may also want to just do some body work and get something more secure all together, particularly the kind used in RVs today that have a lock and a deadbolt.

Cheers,
Slav

Maggie, you may find shipping to be expensive from Scamp. I'd also check with Paul and see if ordering (+S&H) is cheaper for the things you need, since he's on your side of the border: Fibreglass RV Parts, Repairs, and Service by Paul Neumeister

If it is the one that sticks out it is simply a garage door handle I bought mine at Home Depot, but you can also get them at Rona and Canadian Tire. Just cut the shaft to length and grind the shaft slightly to get it to fit in the hole of the inside handle.

Glad it was helpful. We have purchased a bunch of things from Scamp for our Boler restoration.
