This replacement leather briefcase handle is available in brown and black. Metal end pieces are supplied and can be fixed using woodscrews. This style of handle is often used on wooden cases e.g. those used for backgammon and musical instruments. The handle springs back into the flat position when not in use, hence the name. We have known them to be used on old Marshall amplifiers and speakers. The ideal overall length including chrome fittings is 215mm, there is a little flexibility (handle width 26mm). Hole centres 173mm. Hole diameter 7mm.

This range of replacement parts is useful for practically minded people, who have a broken suitcase or briefcase they do not want to part with and who do not have a saddler or luggage repairer in their neighbourhood.

The straps I ordered from you were received safely today. Their quality is excellent and they suit my purpose very well. You may like to know that I bought them to replace a single 24" strap, the shorter of the two straps that secure a fifty-year-old guitar case (the other is 48" long).
These cases were sold in large numbers at that time (I have two), and many are doubtless still in use. If your black 18mm. straps were available in 24" and 48" lengths, I am sure it would be a great boon to an entire generation of guitar-pickers - especially as the quality of the original straps was nowhere near as good as yours!
