A retractable handle assembly for a suitcase includes a base disposed on an upper portion of the suitcase, an actuating device, a cover element and a handle. An outer tube is disposed on each side of the suitcase and extends between the base and the bottom of the suitcase with an inner tube retractably received in each of the outer tubes. Each of the inner tubes has a first end extending through the base and cover element and is attached to the handle. A resilient element is received in one of the inner tubes and has a protrusion extending radially through the cover element. The actuating device has a sliding element which is connected by a spring to a biasing portion. One end of the sliding portion is inserted into the cover element and an inner tube. One end of the biasing portion contacts the protrusion of the resilient element. When the actuating device is slid, it pushes the protrusion from the cover element and withdraws the end of the sliding portion from the cover element, freeing the inner tubes.
