Swing Bar Casket Handle, Arm and Adapter, 1-1/4 Oval
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 oval bar stock.
Order a set of 16 for a 6x2 handle pattern, or 12 for a 4x2 handle pattern.
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 arm is compatible with our wooden oval dowel handles. This swing bar is a tight fit with our 1x1-1/4 oval dowels. The 1x1-3/8 arm and adapter is a little easier to fit, but both sizes are compatible.
Arm is available in plain steel and in a variety of powder coated finish colors. If you have a particular color request, let us know and we can quote you. Plain steel arm and adapter come separate ready for finishing. Powder coated arms come preassembled with the adapter.
