A drawer pull often includes a plate to which the handle is fastened. The handle may swing from one or two mounts (“drop handle” or “swing handle”), making a drop drawer pull. A bail handle is a kind of swing handle consisting of an open loop attached to two mounts.

How wide should finger pulls be?

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 you install finger cabinet pulls?

Finger pulls are mounted to the bottom edge of upper cabinet doors and the top edge of lower doors. Only the front edge of each pull is visible. For upper cabinet doors, mount finger pulls flush to each bottom corner (obviously opposite the hinges). For lower doors, mount pulls flush to each upper corner.

What size edge pulls for cabinets?

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. 5″ pulls are also an excellent choice.

How do you use finger pulls?

We recommend that finger pulls be installed in line with the corner edge of the door. Obviously, we’ll still be installing the cabinet hardware to the opposite side of the door hinge. However, for upper cabinets, you’ll mount the finger pulls to the bottom corner of the door (all the way to the edge).
