If the inside handle easily opens both latches does that rule out adjustment? Isnt the long rod operated by both the inside and outside handles? The outside handle willopen both latches if i jerk the handle hard.....

There is a kit on the market to fix the Trimark 060-1650 or T507 handle. I have had 3 of the handles break, 2 of them the pot metal striker, and one of the steel ones. The steel one didn't break the metal, but a plastic piece broke and jammed the handle. A friend told me about this kit, and I got 3 of them. They took 3 minutes to install, and there's no plastic to break. I found them on Ebay. After spending over $500, I was ready to try anything.

You would think so, but the inside handle has a larger range of movement than the outside. That means that the door will stop working sooner with the outside handle while the inside will still function.

Thank you for that info it makes sense. Now if i can get the inside handle cover off i will be in business.

Would you by chance have a link to the kit available from E-Bay?

So today the outside handle broke leaving a piece at the top and bottom.The top does nothing but the remaining small piece of handle at the bottom opens the door better then before the handle broke. So now i dont think it needs an adjustment i think the handle had issues.
