How To Replace the Case Handle
Early Singer Featherweight 221 cases had a leather case handle and were attached to the Featherweight case using D-Rings.
This tutorial, on the other hand, is focused more on the later style case handles; the ones that would be considered more straight and in-line and attached to the case lid using metal posts. These case handles had a metal/steel strap inside and are mostly worn today after so many years of rubbing against the leather exterior. They are more cumbersome to remove, let alone install, but after finding a high-quality replica leather case handle that includes proper pins, we have created this video tutorial (below) with easy-to-follow instructions for replacement! You'll find tips for replacing the Bakelite Case Handle as well.
