I shortened the handles considerably. For some instances, extra wide handles might be nice, but I didn't need to get four fingers around it. I don't think the plastic could take that much strain anyhow. The retaining screw hole was also too small, so I expanded it to the existing socket diameter. On the side opposite the countersunk hole, I added a hexagonal cutout for a nut.
The hexagonal nut socket was a bad idea because it made the plastic too thin and encouraged splitting. One goal of this project is to make the handle discreet, so I didn't want to have the nut far above the handle where it would be easy to snag on things.
