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!

    That's not fixing anything, it's rigging it up. That's a beautiful hardware set, do it right!!
