My garage features an old-style T-handle very similar to Prime-Line GD 52169 or National Hardware V7643, except that the distance between the hole centers is 1-3/4". Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find replacement handles anywhere - the only ones available have the distance of 1-1/2". Is there any way or trick to replace the T handle without drilling new holes and replacing most of the lock?
The only part that has similarly distanced holes is an L-handle (Prime-Line GD 52123), but apart from having a different shape it also seems to feature real holes on the sides, not the shafts. I am not sure if it would fit the T-lock assembly.
