    My Kolstein flight case lost one of the handles on the side in its latest trip. Anyone know how to replace this? (it's been lost in airplane netherworld). Luckily there's still one more handle on that side, but it'd be nice to have both.

    Go to hardware store. Find handle that looks similar to the one that was broken off. Attach using either small screws and nuts or pop rivets. If fiberglass is broken up, buy a fiberglass repair kit and use as directed, reinforcing the repair with fender washers. If using screws and nuts, once everything is properly aligned and copasetic, disassemble and use Loctite on the screw threads to prevent loosening.
