I can snap the handle on; however, it is not very secure; it comes off with even light usage.
So, I'm guessing I need to attached the handle with a screw; however, no such screw came with my purchase. Any advice would be appreciated!
On the parts diagrams for the P2601 and the P2603 the part number 660208095 bolt is inserted through the base of the 302373002 handle and then through the housing and then threads into the other side of the handle. It should also work on the model number P2602. The only problem is that the bolt is on a factory back order with no delivery date.
The part number 302373002 Front Handle Assembly, is the correct handle for the Ryobi P2605.
How do I get a new one from manufacturer?Ijust bought this less than a month ago!
I don't know if you purchased the entire tool, battery and charger less then a month ago. If you did you should be able to take it back to the company you purchased it from. Most manufactures have a 30 day or longer return policy. If it was just the 130429025 battery you purchased. You should have the charger and battery checked out at the nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center. You may have a problem with the charger.
I do feel your frustration in this situation. But you are venting your feelings to the wrong company. We sell parts and accessories for the manufacture, and haven't any control of their inventory or quality of the product they produce. I will, for a favor for you, pass on what you have written to the Ryobi National Sales Manager and the National Service Manager.
