https://www.langequip.com/product_images/uploaded_images/penco-handle.jpgWhether you're the director of buildings and grounds at a school district, a maintenance supervisor at an office complex, or a Principal in a small elementary school the fact remains that Penco locker handles break! Below we'll give a little info on the handle and a video on how to replace it.

This is a two - piece handle that has been in use since 1967 and believe it or not Penco still uses this locker handle on many lockers that they manufacture today. Many people refer to this handle as a Vanguard handle due to its use on the Penco Vanguard line of lockers.

The major flaw with this handle is that the bottom tang on the lifter part of the handle breaks and makes it near impossible to open the door. DO NOT PRY THE DOOR OPEN! If you do, you'll have to replace the door which is a much larger (and expensive) repair.

So how do I replace the Penco handle without damaging the door you ask?

Watch the video below on the easiest method of fixing your broken Penco handle and you'll be on your way!
