I found that the Winegard "Satellite" Antenna Crank Handle RK-Hand I found on Ebay works and looks a lot nicer than the handle that comes with the "TV" Antenna. Its way stronger and folds up for a clean look. It will screw on the existing set up that you have. You can not buy just this part from Winegard so Ebay is your best option... Hope this helps!!!

Any ideas why it failed? Bad casting, machining?

My set screw has come loose a couple of time causing the handle to drop down the shaft. Last time I put a drop of blue Loc Tite on the threads. So far so good. It seems very cheaply made and prone to easy breakage.

The plastic split down the 'thread' of the handle, in line with the set screw. This is the forth one.

I 'tighten' until it makes contact with the 'shaft', then juuuuuust snug enough to hold the handle on under 'spring tension'....

I even filed a small 'groove' in the shaft so that the screw did not have to be run too tight and could still hold on under the spring tension..

Maybe I just keep getting their 'bad batches'....

The new Hand Crank arrived, sans screw and nut. Fired note to Winegard and they are mailing replacement.

It is far beefier than the original... Thanks for the tip!

My '02 Classic has the original Winegard TV antenna. It has some wear and is in need of replacement or repairs. Has anyone replaced the exterior gear / interior crank parts? It seems that would be easier than the whole unit since it's only the up / down mechanism that is bad. I have no leaks so hesitate to replace the entire unit.

There is a note around the crank to lubricate twice per year.
Where do I lubricate?
What type of grease/oil?

I've bee using dry silicone spray, up top, thinking that I don't want to attract dirt/dust to that mechanism. It's been working for 15 years.

Where do you spray the silicone?
Will it be obvious?

Your antenna is likely different from my old one. But mine actually has a label and a plastic access plug. But you could just go up there while you have someone rotate and raise and lower it. Look for where two surfaces move past one another.
