My husband & I let a family member use one of our Coleman coolers several years back and he broke the handle. We couldn't decide what to do about the cooler so we hung on to it for a couple years and finally decided that we would use some rope for the handle. That hurt our hands when cooler was full. Was gonna through cooler away when a friend told us about replacement parts. I researched it, found that handle and another part for another Coleman item we had and for both replacement parts was cheaper than the cooler would have cost on sale. Great find....I am so glad it was Coleman product and the replacement parts were cheap.
