    • When you depress the button on the handle, the two pins on the sides of the handle should retract, freeing the handle to slide.

  • If either pin is not retracting use a pencil, screwdriver, or other thin object to push the pin into the hole.

I depressed the pins. It worked once or twice. But now, I have to depress the pins every time to get the handle to work OR even with the pins depressed it will still not retract or if retracted it will still not open.

What is the solution?

I love this suitcase otherwise, but the handle has always been tricky needing just the right angle on the way in and having to jiggle it to get it out.

Hi Sharon,

The solution to depress the pins was meant to be a temporary solution when your handle is stuck in the extended position. Unfortunately, it means that your handle needs to be replaced as the handle trigger mechanism and pins are not functioning properly. Contact Patagonia for a new handle. You can either call us and we will can ship you a new one and you can replace yourself, or you can go to a Patagonia Retail Store and get a new handle there, afterwhich you can use the handing guidelines for replacement.
