Help please - replacement handle for console door/hatch?

Hello All

Any suggestions please of where to get a replacement handle/barrel/locking arm mechanism for this door/hatch on my console please? Please see pics.

Current one broke seemingly due to the plastic going brittle where the metal holding pin fitted in. Looks like you could just replace the barrel unit complete with handle, rather than the whole door.

The door itself looks pretty generic and is 300 x 200mm and is on a Bombard Explorer 500 circa year 2000. As pictured on profile.

Many thanks

Steve

That looks pretty standard to most hatches, probably made by Plastimo/Navimo. I'd pop down your local chandler and buy the cheapest hatch with the same mechanism and swap the handles over. I doubt you can get the handle on its own.

Hello Erin

Many thanks for the quick response, which normally would be just the thing... But up here the nearest chandler who would stock such things is 120 miles away plus a ferry or flight in Inverness.

So being able to get a replacement by mail order is really what I was after.

No disrespect to our local chandlers The Rope Centre in Stromness who do a good job and are really helpful, but it's just not something that they'd stock, and so would have to order in anyway.

I see you are on an island too, but I guess there's a fair bit more in the way of chandlers and boat yards down there....?

So any more suggestions welcome.

Many thanks again Erin

Best wishes

Steve

I've had the exact same thing happen to me (someone stepped on the open hatch!) - I have Araldited it back together and so far seems to be holding - just make sure you don't put too much on that it stops the post from turning.

Thanks Longjohn

Glue is my fall back position - would like to get another though as the plastic has gone quite brittle, so would like to start afresh.

The bungee strap works OK for now, but would like it to be more firmly closed against the water.

Best wishes and thanks

Steve

Yes indeed there are. We have a couple of reasonable chandlers who between them hold a fairly varied array of stock.

If you can identify the manufacturer of your hatch I'd suggest a polite email to the company or main distributor. I've found direct contact with the main supplier usually elicits a helpful and positive outcome.
