Thank you for your question, Robert505! I do apologize that your handle is tight, but will be more than happy to help! In order to remove the handles on model 21742LF, you would need to turn the handle base counterclockwise. When putting the handles back on, you will need sure the handle with "H" mark is installed on the left, and the handle with "C" mark is installed on the right. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us directly.
Best Regards, Benjamin
