Help! Handle rattles on old Marshall cab

Hi there,

I searched around a bit but couldn't find anything for this specific issue. I have an old Marshall cab, early '74 I think, and one of the handles is very noticeably rattling when I play. It's driving me nuts, and I think it's gotten worse lately. What's the best way to go about fixing it? Maybe shimming something between the handle and the cab? The handle is fixed in with 6 studs, not screws, so I can't see any way to tighten them. I also understand the 6-screw handles are difficult to come by new, is that right? Thanks in advance for any help!

I had one that did the same. Just put some epoxy in the edge of the handle where it was rattling. Cheap and did the trick.

The plastic bar handles rattle where the cylinder 'grip' rotates in it's mounts; I replaced mine with steel handles. However, I hear a shot of silicone RTV will silence them...
