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. 

D-Ring Case Handle for Singer Featherweight 221

(You can order a D-Ring Case Handle here
and watch a different tutorial, which includes installation.)
 

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.
