I've got 6x L&E Branded ministrips in stock that were gifted to us without Trunnions/handles. I think I have been able to locate the Trunnions, but not handles. Does anyone have a good source for the handles and/or a comparable McMaster part that would fit? (I wasn't able to find the thread size online).

Thanks!

Pretty sure it's 1/2-13, same as a c-clamp's yoke bolt.* In fact, i'd consider just using yoke bolts--plentiful, allows closer spacing, and what electrician doesn't have a wrench anyway? But if you must have the T-handle s, almost all parts are interchangeable with Altman, so I'd look at Production Advantage's (or your favorite vendor's) parts page.

* @SteveB will know for sure.

EDIT: Just thought of something...make sure the bolts/threads aren't too long! ISTR that with early units, the threads could touch/break the end lamps. Adding washer(s), shorter bolts solved the issue.
