Take one of your handles off and go to place that sells handles for garage
doors. I went to a locksmith and they had handles that look almost
identical to the original except for the lock in the center of the handle.
The mounting flange lined up perfectly and I even used the original screws.
I had to buy two handles with matching keys. They were not expensive. Most
people who look at my M37 don't even notice.
