Function: this handle locks by pushing the lock button in, so you do not need a key to lock it.
Fits: the sliding door on most Utilimaster, Supreme, Union City, Grumman, and Morgan-Olson bodies 1986-Current. Will also fit the Alfred / Timpte sliding side doors with the 3/8" shaft, but WILL NOT fit the swing-out door (we offer that handle too).
To lock, just push the button in. To unlock, use the key. Here's a tip: Keep a door key on your person, and use your deadbolt at night too for total security.
Stats: Polished chrome finish; brass mechanism. 3/8" x 3 3/4" shaft. Measure this by removing your door handle and using a 3/8" drive socket, insert it's shaft into the ratchet end of the socket, not the nut end. If the shaft fits snugly, it is 3/8". If it is loose, it is 5/16". Mounting holes are 4 7/8" top to bottom, and 1 15/16" center to center.
Note: Use with inside latches our Part# DS4000 (traditional slim handle). Special Note: if you have a Grumman Olson body, this is not the exact replacement for the original handle with the double sided key, but it will fit as a replacement. The double sided key is available only from Grumman (now Morgan-Olson) and it is on the expensive side.
Installation Note: the shaft on the new handle connecting the outside handle and inside latch might (probably will) be longer than your current handle. This is no accident - Kason leaves it long so the handle will fit a variety of bodies and model years; no two body builders and bodies are exactly alike. Just cut the shaft off to match what you have now. * Please keep and re-use your current mounting bolts, they are not included.
