Black Tank Release Handle

I am trying to find a replacement "T" handle for the end of the Black Tank release rod. I need one with a set screw that holds the handle in place, not the T Handle with the female threads built into it. See lots of replacements for the threaded type; cant find one that uses the set screw.

Again, just need the T handle at the top.

Thanks for any help!

Do you have the ability of drilling and taping threaded holes? If so I would purchase a NEW Aluminum handle and modify it for my application

Even if you are all thumbs in the DIY department, you can do as suggested here if you have an electric drill and a small Crescent wrench:

-8-32 set screw
- #29 drill bit
- 8-32 tap
- small tap holder (or a small Crescent wrench will work well with aluminum if careful)
- drill bit sized to remove the handle threads
(#10 screw is a bit big and # 6 a bit small )
You can buy a cheap tap holder (or small Crescent wrench) at any Harbor Freight or a little better one on line or at any Big Box store
