Both of my Scamps need to have the door handles replaced, both inside and out. On the 84 the entire mechanism seems to be frozen up. A half of a can of WD40 and it still won't budge- plus it didn't come with a key- on the 78, I replaced it a few years ago but what Scamp
had then as compared to what they had in 78 is a little differnet and it just isn't quite right so I want to start over on both. I have bought locking latches that I have on the outside, so keeping it locked and assuring that the door stays closed while in transit is not an issue so here is my question...
Does anyone have a modification to replace the door handles? I was wondering if a standard screen door handle might work? I was looking at them at Home Depot and they seem to work essentially the same as the Scamp
door handles, as far as engaging or disenging a part against a strike plate. Even though they don't look the same, I am not too concerned with that.
As much as I would like to just replace them with the handles from Scamp
, they are pretty pricey (times 2) like I said above, they are not exactly the same as my originals anyway. Plus I hate to say it but the last order I placed with Scamp has been a headache (they sent the wrong part and I am having a terrible time trying to get them to take it back and send the right one) So this is just in my thought stages...
