Promaster 3500 Ext.
You make very good use of your shop tools.Mine has one screw through the original handle. It had to accommodate the swiveling cup holder, which itself is insanely useful.

Seems like a familiar idea...
Promaster Sliding Door Handle - Carbon Fiber PCFor those who have either struggled to open the 2017-2022 Promaster slider door with the OEM door handle or consider the factory handle as being too flimsy, flexible or have broken the part in half, here is a perfect replacement if you are looking to upgrade. Whether used for commercial or...www.promasterforum.com
Everyone should be complaining to RAM, NHTSA, FTC and Consumer Reports about this. It is a highly dangerous problem that should be fixed as a recall. So should the problem of unlocking from the insider after locking with the fob. Think fire and smoking and missing key.What was previously impossible for kids to do is now easy!
Winnebago isn't selling these as cargo vans. If it needs modification it should be done by Winnebago. And I'm not aware that RAM says not to use these as campers. So I don't buy the intentionally designed that way idea.@mhmiller48 and @RamVanGuy
That's the way it's designed. First pull simply unlocks it, once unlocked then subsequent pulls open it. Back door is the same so my guess is that this IS the safety mechanism.
Remember, this is sold as a cargo van and is not designed nor intended for transporting kids or anyone else in the back. If driving with people in the rear is the plan you have to make your own safety modifications.
How can I order and when? Will new handle allow full opening of sliding door? ThanksYes, a familiar idea for a known ProMaster weakness. Mine is injection molded glass reinforced nylon, which will be superior in surface quality and strength to 3D printed carbon fiber.
I also retain use of the stock fastener and incorporate a steel bearing at the pivot point, which will let me offer a lifetime warranty.
Competition is good 👍
These will be available end of next month @ www.openglass.storeHow can I order and when? Will new handle allow full opening of sliding door? Thanks
All the VIN numbers on these RAM vans sold in the US are coded as cargo. It's not an opinion, you can look it up. RAM is not responsible for, nor could it care less, what Winnebago does with it after it's sold.Winnebago isn't selling these as cargo vans. If it needs modification it should be done by Winnebago. And I'm not aware that RAM says not to use these as campers. So I don't buy the intentionally designed that way idea.
For reference, there was a lengthy discussion about ProMaster door handles some time ago.
My simple 3d printable design is linked in this post:
We have been using this handle for quite some time. Seems to be strong enough.
