NS Ball Valve Handles

A number of the valve handles in my ER have gone walkabout over the years. I'm having trouble finding suitable replacements.

Note these are somewhat unusual handles in their configuration - the tab to limit movement comes off at a 45 degree angle. I also think the hole size may be non-standard.

Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Try your local hardware store like ACE or True Value. They might not be perfect but can be made functional with a rat-tail file. The tab probably won’t match either. Cut it off. Better than using a crescent wrench.

Also Defender has SS handles. Type into Search:

Greetings,
Mr. d. Perhaps a silly question but have you been in touch with the manufacturer?

Not silly at all. I had concluded they weren't the manufacturer but I need to loop back and confirm that. Thanks.

Sadly they aren't the manufacturer. Tough when all you have is "NS" to go on.

Seems that no one (chandleries, supply houses, big box stores) has an exact match for this pattern. Will likely just buy something close and modify as needed. Not the perfect match I hoped for but workable.

Thanks.
