How do you measure replacement handles?
Measure from the center of the screw hole in one threaded post over to the center of the other screw hole with a tape measure. This is the measurement required when selecting replacement pulls.
How do you replace old drawer pulls?
Simply grab a screwdriver (don’t use an electric drill) and carefully remove the screw from the backside of the drawer or cabinet. If your knob or pull doesn’t have a screw, look for a nut and washer; unscrew the nut and slide off the washer, and pull the knob out from the front of the drawer.
What size pulls for drawers?
Determine Size While there is no set rule, we generally recommend that the pull length is approximately 1/3 of the cabinet or drawer width. Small Drawers that are 12” or less typically work best with a pull that is 3” to 4” long or a knob that is 1” in diameter.
How do I know what size drawer pulls to buy?
What are the standard drawer handle sizes?
Standard-sized drawers can use any of the following pull sizes: 3” (one or two), 4” (one or two), 96mm, and 128mm.
How do you decide between knobs and pulls?
There are no strict rules to follow when choosing whether to select a knob or a pull or both. One preference is to use knobs for all doors and pulls for all drawers. For any large door such as a pantry and any pull-out door (including pull-out base pantries or trash pull-outs), use a pull.
Are drawer handles standard size?
It depends on the size of the drawer. Standard base and wall cabinets are usually between 12 and 36 inches. If this is the case, it’s typical to use 3- or 4-inch pull handles. If your cabinets are larger than standard, you’ll need larger pulls.
Should all drawer pulls be the same size?
There is no right or wrong size to choose, but we do recommend choosing pulls that have at least a 3-3/4″ center to center (the distance between the screw holes). This size looks pleasing on most cabinets, while still being large enough to grip comfortably.
