Help fitting handle onto lawnmower

Wasn't sure where to post this, so have done it here and also in the In my home section, hope that is ok.

My husband has just bought a new Alko lawnmower. He put it all together, then just as he was about to start using it, he somehow managed to catch himself on the handle, and yanked it off.

Problem is, the handle was pre-assembled, so there are no instructions as to how it goes back on. He's spent over an hour trying to do it, then I've gone and spent nearly another hour, but we are still stumped :o

Can't find any decent pictures online of the mower to see how it should go, just wondered if any of you may be able to help. He's tried calling the shop he bought it from but they're shut.

I've attached some photos - there is the main frame of the lawnmower, and then 2 separate metal handles which have to somehow fix on. Then there are 2 metal wires on the right hand side, which need to somehow slot into the metal handles.

Nothing we've tried seems quite right and we're out of ideas now, please can anyone help?





Many thanks.
