Reversing the thumb lock on the Swisco 82-005 Sliding Door Handle

Uploaded by SWISCOdotcom on 23.03.2012

Hey, it's Mike from
and today I'm going to show you how you can easily switch the thumb latch
on your 82-005 Sliding Door Handle Assembly so the latch can work from the left or right side
Okay, so I've got the inside portion of the 82-005 sliding door handle assembly
We don't need the outside portion, as that is already neutral.
So the first step here is to take your flathead screwdriver and pop out the retainer clip.
Releasing the thumb latch, and then just working this out of hte handle.
Flip it over to the other side
Alright, so now we have it facing the other way
Take your clip, pop this back in place
And there you go. So now we have the 82-005 handle assembly locking from the opposite side
As always, thanks for watching this tutorial.
