I have two garage doors in my garage, one has a garage door opener and
the other is hand operated.
The hand operated inside knob broke and, being of white metal casting,
could not be repaired. I took the inside knob off the auto operated
door, since it was not being used, and put that one on the hand operated
door. That didn't last long and broke as well.
I Googled for repair parts for garage doors and all I could find were
the outside (locking) knob parts. Right now the locking mechanism for
the hand operated door is secured with a small visegrip.
Anyone has a source for inside handles??

Have you tried calling any of them? We've got at least three family

I broke mine 3 times in about 5 years and replaced the handle with a
piece of web belt I got from the military surplus store. I fastened it

and its still there.
I had this problem with my own garage door; I don't recall where I got
the parts from but I ended up having to drill the shaft for a hitch pin,
I do remember that. Stuff that ought to be a bolt on sometimes isn't...
I did have to do a lot of searching to find the parts I needed (the two
rods and rotating cam assembly that go inside the door) none of my local
stores had them.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.

Picture this: A garage door that has a handle and opens and closes by
turning a handle and lifting or pulling down on the door. No electricity
Now the inside handle has broken, which is essential to locking the
door, so it can't lock the door on the inside, and the outside keyed
handle, which relies on the inside handle, no longer locks the door.
