This steel arm and adapter style casket handle is common on wood caskets. This type of arm hinges on a patented 3-hole pattern and can be connected to a simple single adapter or a pair of arms can be used with a lug. The arm is secured to the outside of a wood casket with single or double lug or bracket. The arm is wrapped around an oval dowel handle made from wood or steel.

This arm is available in two sizes including a 1x1-1/4 oval and a 1x1-3/8 oval. Both are compatible with our wooden oval dowel handles, with the smaller of the two making for a nice tight fit with our 1x1-1/4 oval wooden dowels. The 1x1-3/8 arm and adapter is a little easier to fit--especially if you are making your own oval dowel handles with a 1-inch bullnose bit, then order the 1x1-3/8 size.  If you are fitting with our oval steel bar stock, use the 1x1-1/4 size.

This swing bar is the real vintage. We've partnered with General Machinery & Mfg. Co. of Chicago to revive these unique vintage parts--some of which have not been produced since the 1940s. Learn more about these vintage parts by reading about our suppliers.

The first thing you will notice when you receive these parts is that the steel is higher quality and heavier gage than many similar brackets made by others. This type of arm is an adapter design. The bracket is secured to the side of the casket with single or double lug or bracket. The arm hinges on a patented 3-hole pattern.

This arm is compatible with our wooden oval dowel handles.
