Amp handle broke. Help please.

Hey so yesterday one of the pieces that hold my Peavey Classic 30's handle came off. I'm thinking it was held by a bolt or nut on the other side. I can hear something moving around my amp as I tilt it side to side which I believe to be that piece.

Thing is, I have no idea how to get to it. I don't wanna wreck my amp or hurt myself. Any help?

It looks like the retaining nut fell. You can get a replacement handle that will have ALL of the hardware.

You will have to access the bottom side of it- if there is a loose piece of metal sitting inside your chassis I would not turn your amp on. I would hate for it to short anything out.

You can pull it yourself with a few screw drivers most likely.

Oh yea I got it. I was just a little scared since I read a lot about being wary of touching the insides and lethal shocks and all that.

So don't touch anything inside the chassis.
