    How do I tighten uPVC sliding door handle?

    Window Specialists

    Hi, my sliding patio door handle is coming loose. It’s a uPVC sliding patio handle. The top part has unscrewed itself but I can’t see a way to tighten it back up as the screw head appears to be inside the handle itself. Do I need to hire someone to come and fix it with special tools?

    "Undo the handle and inside you will see the screws that hold the handles onto the back plate. Tighten and replace"

    "You should be able to pop off the cover plate
    And tighten from there"
