    It works!

    Posted by Jake Boyle on Jan 10th 2019

    The preivious owner of my truck tried fixing the handle with large washers so I was skeptical that this plate would be any better. I was wrong. It was very easy to install, Took just a few minutes and worked perfectly. The plate lined up very easily with the factory holes. After drilling, I used the supplied rivets and After installing, everything was solid. I was able to open up my door from the inside without rolling down my window! Great quality, and great price!

    Went together fairly quickly after i removed the hackjob the PO did on my drivers door handle. Now I have a functioning inner door handle again.

    Great product

    By far the best way to keep from breaking interior door handles, works great took about 10 minutes with a rivet gun and it's 10x better than new. Everything lined up exactly with the original holes.

    Stiffened up the door

    I didn't cut any of the existing metal out. I had previously welded the torn door metal back together. After riveting the new piece in place the inner panel became more rigid where the lever bolts on. .

    15 minute install, 10/10 performance

    15 minutes I got my door card off, cut the existing metal for clearance of the nut, drilled and riveted the plate, put the handle back on, replaced with a Dorman metal handle, and it works incredibly. No more reaching out the window to pull yourself out.

    Fantastic product

    Went without a door handle for a few months because I didn’t know how simple it was to replace it with this product. The whole job took me about 20 minutes and now I can open the door from inside. Also received it very quickly. would recommend this to anyone with the broken handle or even to just replace the weak stock setup for when it eventually does break.
