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.
One last note: the 5/16" shaft is only used on truck bodies from the 1990s and older. We no longer stock and sell these. If you need one call us and ask, we will refer you to a supplier.
