Hello Joann! Welcome to the forum. I do not know what router you have, on some routers, the handle is removed. Check the instructions that came with your router, does it show the handle being mounted to the router with plugs that cover the screws? Is there a switch , or a break that is mounted to the router. Please give the make and model of router, and and someone may be able to respond. Also, the push clamp handle is a part of the table? I do not know enough to give you a good answer, Dome one will be able to respond to you. Thank you!
