Is there a way you can use nuts and bolts instead of screws to attach the handle.

That’s the ticket. Two bolts about 2 1/4” (60cm), 2 nuts, 2 standoffs 1” (25mm), 2 lock washers, 4 flat washers and one piece of wood about 1” OD or square or rectangular. Drill appropriate holes to match fireplace, put one flat washer on each bolt , put bolts through holes drilled into wood, put other flat washers on bolt, insert bolts through standoffs, insert bolts through fireplace door, put on lock washers, nuts, and torque to whatever feels good. Should last a few years before you have to replace the wood.

My BBQ has this arrangement and is stored outdoors. I got it at the turn of the century, and it’s still ok other than one handle rotting and breaking off. ......... Jerry (in Tucson)
