Flush door handles help conserve space and provide a seamless look. Flush pull handles are used for sliding doors where a knob would avert it from sliding into its recess and for doors that remain flush against the frame. The installation process is the same for a square, rectangle and round flush pull handle.
Here is a simple step by step guide that will show you how to install flush pull handles.
- Tools You Need: Measuring tape, pencil, hammer, chisel, drill, 3mm drill bit, head bit and safety glasses.
- Time Needed: 35 to 40 Minutes.
Flush Pull Handles – Installation Steps:
- Measure the centre you want for the flush pull to rest from the door edge and mark with the pencil.
- Measure the height you want for the flush pull to reside and mark with a pencil a fixed point.
- Now mark the length and width of the flush pull from its back box (this is the back part of the flush pull).
- Use a level to mark out and ensure the cut-out shape is level with a spirit level.
- Use a chisel or preferred tool to cut out the material uniformly and to the correct depth.
- If using back-to-back flush pulls, you may want to cut an open hole through the door.
- Position the flush pulls through the cut to ensure the cut-out matches the size and shape. You may need to adjust if required.
- Put on the required amount of silicone-based adhesive to the back of the cut-out.
- It is time to press the flush pull into the hollow.
- Secure the brad nails or fix screws to the top and bottom inside the flush pull to securely fix the flush pulls into the hollow.
Voila, your flush pull installation is complete.
