A Better Grip

QT-door-handle

While RVing in the mountains last summer I had the doors open a lot and used the screen. There was no grab bar to pull the door shut behind me. Stores do sell them, but they are sort of bulky. I bought a handle off the shelf at Lowe’s that was large enough for my hand to fit in. The screws that came with the new handle were too long, so before installing, I put nuts on and then drilled the two holes. After installing, I tightened the nuts down and cut the ends of the screws off, then filed down the rough edges. I added a drop of super glue to keep the nuts tight.
