-Without the pocket like my original welded aluminum handles, no longer available.
I set up a store on my website to make keeping track of the handles easier.

These are machined from 6061-T6 Aluminum and will come with an as machined surface.

Price will be for the handles and the hardware to mount them into your existing bezels


I have raw or black anodized sets available.

No aluminum prototypes yet?
Aluminum singles are very expensive to produce 1 at a time. (a little more than double the normal cost). I won't make aluminum till I know they are right. I've already got a lot invested in this.

Been waiting for someone to do this for nearly 15 years; I'm definitely interested. Are the bezels you provide for additional expense plastic aftermarket or oem?
The bezels are aftermarket. Only way to get OEM now is thru STM and they are $100 each.

Many years ago someone made laser cut inserts the would reinforce the stock plastic handle. I bought a set and did this modification to a Dorman aftermarket handle. While the handle itself held up, it ended up breaking the inner uprights that the hinge passes through. Do you think the same will eventually happen with these aluminum handles, and if so, would there be any way to reinforce the hinge?

Circled area is where the hinge failed on my reinforced handle.

The bezel is the next weak link. No way around that unfortunately. I would do the bezel in aluminum too but those would cost more than the handles so people would have close to or even a little over $500 in door handles. It's just not worth the investment IMO to make aluminum bezels.

Yeah, fair. The metal inserted handles did last significantly longer than then the unmodified plastic handles, so these aluminum parts will be worth it regardless.

I forgot to post the pictures of the black anodized handle here. These things feel amazing!

Here they are coming out of anodizing. You can see the Raw finish, Clear Anodized and black anodized. Clear is actually a grey finish.
