  • How to Measure - Attach Drawer Pulls

    How to determine drawer pull size:

    Boring is the distance from center of mounting hole to center of adjacent mounting hole. If replacing handles on existing drawers, this is the most crucial measurement. More leeway is available when adding drawer pulls to new furniture or cabinets, as mounting holes can be drilled where needed.

    • Most common size boring is 3". Other less common center of hole to center of hole measurements: 2-1/2", 3-1/2" and 4" are available in limited designs. Large sizes such as 5" or 6" are very difficult to find.
    • Overall Size reflects: width and height of handle at widest point. Ideally a balanced relationship between drawer handle and drawer is best.

    How to Measure Handles

    Attaching Drawer Pulls & Knobs

    • Thread size is generally 8-32.
    • Mounting screws are used to attach many styles of drawer pulls and cabinet knobs. Screws are inserted from back of drawer, through mounting holes, into back of drawer pull or knob. Length supplied is determined by manufacturer. While supplied screw length is generally useful, occasionally a different size is required. Please let us know if you need a specific length. To determine the correct size: measure wood thickness and add 1/4".
    • Posts or Eyebolts are available in one length. Posts/eyebolts insert from front through holes in backplate, through mounting holes and are secured with nuts .Occasionally they may be too short to accommodate drawer thickness. Historically in this situation on antique furniture: a small shallow area is carved out of the drawer-interior around each mounting hole. This reduces the wood thickness at mounting-hole locations enabling shorter posts with nuts to be used. Diameter of carved area must be large enough to accommodate nut.

    Excellent

    Shipping was fast, I called to fix a billing problem and they were very courteous and pleasant to deal with. Loved the product -- the eyelet screws for my bail handles were too short to go through my drawer, but that's all on me. Would order from these folks again for sure.
