    Have any members used these window winder handles from The Bus Stop?

    I seem to go through standard winders like toilet paper after a dodgy curry! Either the metal in the handle breaks, or the spindle holding the knob on breaks.

    I'm looking for something a tad sturdier.

    Tahnks,

    I've had the sturdier ones from the bus stop in for 2 years.You just have to tighten them up every now and then.

    Thanks guys. I'll spend the extra on the premium ones from Roy but I probably do need to remove the door cards and give the mechanisms a thorough clean and lube after 36 years!

    Cheers,

    Baz

    When painting my old fella in Feb, we pulled the winding mechanism completely apart, gave it a good wash and re-assembled it using a high temperature grease (only because I already had it, but not sure if it's the best) and honestly, a two year old child could turn that crank easily. It made a huge difference, but a devil of a job:(
