How to Replace a Shovel Handle

Materials Needed:

  • 1 replacement handle
  • 2 rivets

Tools required:

  • Hammer
  • File (or grindstone)
  • Punch
  • Vise (or similar tool)
  • Electric drill

Steps:

  • Step 1:
    Hold the old shovel with a vise or a similar tool in order to file the rivet's head; a grindstone can also be used.
  • Step 2:
    Using a punch and a hammer, hit the old rivet until it pops out from underneath.
  • Step 3:
    Insert head on fiberglass handle while making sure to line up the head with the gasket.
  • Step 4:
    Take out the old handle from the blade.
  • Step 5:
    Take out the cap at the end of the replacement handle and locate the rivets that will be used to assemble the new handle.
  • Step 6:
    Insert the new handle into the blade's socket. With the blade up and the handle down, push down on the blade until it reaches the shoulder of the handle or until it holds firm. Make sure that the grip is in line with the blade.
  • Step 7:
    With an electric drill, bore a hole through the handle.
  • Step 8:
    Drive the rivet through the socket and the handle with a hammer.
  • Step 9:
    Hammer the rivet's head until it is flat, so that it holds firmly in place.
  • Step 10:
    File the excess from the rivet to prevent injuries.

Your shovel is now as good as new!
