Can you replace uPVC door handles?

Can you replace a door handle without changing the lock?

In principle, yes you can. Is the keyhole also in the rectangular escutcheon plate? If so, you’ll need one that has the same distance between the centre of the handle pivot and the keyhole. The inner and outer handles will be connected by a square section rod that operates the latch.

How do you tighten uPVC door handles?

Try slightly loosening the screws that hold the handle to the door itself. This should make the handle easier to turn. Remove the handle from the door and operate it while holding the backplate. If the handle does not operate freely, try adding a little grease to it and allowing it to work into the mechanism.
