Fix a Broken Door Handle in 10 Minutes

About: An electronic engineer. Specialized in drone technology.

Cheap door lock handles could break at any time. According to our busy schedules we are unable to find time to change it with a new door lock and we have to spend some money apart from our college expenses. Here is a simple dorm hack to fix your broken door lock handle in 10 minutes.

Step 1: Things You Need

First find a plastic tube that fits to your door lock handle. A small piece of wiring conduit pipes, water pipe or any other plastic pipe would be ideal. A length, little longer than your fist is enough. Mark the length and cut out the piece.

Step 2: Make the Handle

Make sure again it fits for your door lock handle.

Then apply some glue to the handle and fit the pipe tightly.

No more damages to your hand in the morning now.

Enjoy your new door lock handle!
