    Since the handle acts like a reverse why not use a 12 point socket that will fit over the broken part of the handle, It could be either driven on or welded on so that the drive end either 3/8 or 1/2 whichever was the size would face outward and could accept your swivel piece. It would end up a lot stronger than original but just fatter around the end.

    Maybe a female to female adapter would work??

    [QUOTE=I have been evaluating my tool kit. I have been from each end of the states and Canada to Texas and have carried tools I have never used. I have not decided for sure, but starting this spring I am about 99% sure my tool kit is going to be a cell phone, credit card and towing insurance. The only time I have had a break down it was way beyond a road side repair.[/QUOTE]

    Now you're just tempting fate...

    An added bonus of having a tool kit is for the other people on the road that may also have a break down.
