OK what are the treads like on the actual stud itself?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
they look fine - no sign of any burring
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK - if you can leave it with me until I get into work tomorrow we have a kit that allows you to put a threaded nut inside the door from the outside and then you can screw the studs back on and refit the handle. Your only other option is a replacement door. Just for the life of me can't remember what the system is called.

ok
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
OK the kit that your require which covers bolts from 3 to 6mm is the --
Sealey Threaded Nut Riveter Part Number AK933 or if you Google 'Clinchnut kits' it will give you other options. Its straight forward to use, you drill out the existing damaged piece place the new Clinchnut in place and crimp it tight with the supplied tool. If I were you I would go and look at them first and see if it suits your problem. We use them when we have problems with threads but equally you could try Locktite threadlock first and see if that works or as we have also used Araldite letting the adhesive go off with the studs in place before fitting the handle. Whichever you try its going to be cheaper than nearly £200 for a replacement door.
