The best idea when looking to repair your broken luggage handle would be to take it to a shop or other establishment that sell luggage. You can ask them if they know anything about why the handle on your bag is no longer working and if they have an accurate solution for you.

However, if you know for sure that your handle is broken and cannot be repaired, you have three options:

  • Buy a brand new piece of luggage with a fully functioning handle
  • Continue using your current bag regardless of the handle being broken
  • Replacing the handle with a new one

If you intend to replace the handle, then you will need to order in a new handle. There are a few websites that you can find through an Internet search that deal in luggage bag parts. Look for a handle that is correct for your luggage bag and order it. You can also use the manufacturer of your bag to make sure that the handle will work.

  • The steps you need to take

First you must remove the screws within the plastic surrounding your luggage bag. The location and the number of screws will be entirely dependent on the manufacturer of the luggage bag.

Then remove all of the remaining screws that are located at the bottom of the bag. Once this is done, remove the broken handle from the bag and discard of it. Then you must take the new handle and position it identically to where the old handle used to be.

  • And the final stage!

From here, you must reinsert all of the screws into their correct holes and then place the plastic frame back on. Once this is all complete you should have a brand new, fully functioning luggage handle.
