My Sanitronic 7 is missing its handle lock button/spring/mechanism. I can find the button on eBay pretty well but can anyone advise all parts needed for the handle locking mechanism to work?

The Sanitronic 7 has a different mechanism than the 516-518. The mounting clip is different, let me see if I can locate the correct part numbers for the 3 pieces that you need.

OK, the correct part numbers are :

136659S Handle lock button tan

136759 Spring Handle Lock Button

136959S Handle lock shaft

Good luck, it seems the spring clip is discontinued.
