I’ve just picked up a 7U 104hp palette case second hand, and it’s a thing of beauty! But it arrived from the seller with the handle detached from the case, and now I’m a bit flummoxed as to how to reattach it (I’m stupid like that).
So far I’ve put the bolts through the top, and attached the nuts on them from the bottom, with a metal washer on each side. I wasn’t sure which way up the nuts went, but one way up they seemed to barely screw onto the bolts at all, so I went with the other way. Now they screw on, but not far enough to secure the handle. It kind of rattles around on top with about a 2mm gap.
Have I done something fundamentally wrong, or do I just need to REALLY tighten these things to get the handle to fit snugly? I’m kind of reluctant to force them in case I’ve got something in the wrong place. It doesn’t help that, while I have a hex key that fits the top of the bolts nicely, I don’t have the proper tool to hold onto the nut inside the case. What kind of tool would I need that could fit snugly onto the nut despite the front of the case getting in the way awkwardly?
Sorry for the dumb questions. If I’d removed the handle myself then I’d know how to get it back on, but since I received it this way I’m a bit lost!
