Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Sliding Glass Door Handle
The screws that came with handle were too long making it necessary to cut them down plus the diameter of the screws were smaller then the original screws. The smaller screw diameter might cause them to break during continual use of handle. The handle was easy to install once both screws were shortened and appears to work as designed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lsubias Works fine after small adjustment
The handle works fine, though the screws they sent were way too long. And I also wish it came in different colors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ken1 Looks good. Needed to cut mounting screws to fit into door frame
Looks good, had to cut the supplied mounting screws to a length that would fit the frame of the door. But operates well

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HomeHandy Parts fit as expected. Assembly hit a snag.
The metal tore apart where the screws mounted on my OLD sliding door handle. I expected age to be the main culprit, but a previous home owner may have overtightened. Anyway, this replacement door handle was a nearly exact replacement.
New handle mounted to door perfectly but with a couple installation issues:
1. There were no specific assembly directions on the package or inside on a seperate paper. The only directions were on the back of the package and they were for other models. With the handle parts came 4 screws and 4 female ends. I couldn't figure out what the female ends were for?
2. The included screws were too long. I don't know if my door is just skinny (my sliding door looks like every other one I've seen), or I was putting it together wrong, or what but I had to hack saw about a third of the length off the threaded end of two screws so I could screw them into the back of the outside handle without bottoming out.
Without specific directions I had to copy how the old handle had been mounted (and hope it is done correctly). The handle looks and works good but I didn't expect the extra work and stress to mount something so simple!
I recommend the product, but take notice regarding the installation.
