    Default Does anyone recognize this screen door hardware?

    The handle on my screen door has broken but, normal replacement hardware does not fit this odd size handle. There are 3 holes for the top part of the handle and 2 more holes for the bottom lock mechanism which connect to the outside plate. Normal replacement handles do not fit or cover this odd setup. I have checked the screen door for a manufacturer number but there is nothing to be found. Does anyone recognize it or know where I might find a replacement? I have searched everywhere and any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Chuck

    Nothing on that website. The inside of the lock has Cmech stamped on it which is a Hong Kong Manufacturer

    Turns out the door is an EMCO which has been purchased by anderson and they want $60 for the replacement handle when I could buy a new door for $100. What a joke. Any alternative solutions are welcomed.

    Where could I get some plastic or metal plugs to fill the holes for the bottom locking unit. Does Lowes or HD sell things like that?

    Here's what you can do....
    Find 2 sheet of polish brass, one per side, something like 1 ft long and 3 inches wide....just enough to cover all the holes.
    Use construction adhesive to secure brass to the door.
    Purchase new door latch and lock assembly.
    Drill new holes...

    That's exactly what I did to my door. Wife loves the door style very much but the door hardware doesn't exist....
    We paint the door black and fit it with polish brass knock and hardware....Looks like a million dollar door.

    You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape.
    If it doesn't move and should, use WD-40.
    If it shouldn't move and does, use the Duct Tape.
