    I have an issue with 2 types of handles…

    Firstly, I have some upvc bifold doors which I’ve just installed on an outbuilding. They are 2nd hand and I am going to paint them. I tried to take the handles off as I wanted to change it but have struggled to remove the handles. I have removed the lock and then undone the two screws on one side of the handles. Unfortunately this doesn’t loosen enough and the handles don’t come of the spindle. There is not screw on the underside of either handle to remove them off the spindle. Any ideas?

    Secondly, I have handles on wooden doors in the house and again there are no screws on the underside of the handles to loosen them from the spindle.

    Please help!

    They sound as if they are stuck with age.

    Have you tried taping them with a rubber mallet up/down

    If the spindle was a snug fit into the handle it will be stuck there
