without trying to be a smart ass, if you are going to have to spend that much money on a new door just because the handle is broken, either get a different type of handle or just put up with screw driver.


hey does that wall have a crack in it?

We have exactly the same problem here - they are aluminium framed doors which slide together to the centre and then lock (until the lock handle broke).  We too use a screw driver in the slot.  Since we have no local shops which specialise, I have been searching the internet in both France and the UK without success.  We had to have a new pane of double- glazed glass and even the fitter didn't know where we could get such a new lock & handle.  So if anyone can help, we too would be grateful.  We are in the Var near St. Tropez - even an internet site would be useful.

Good luck
