Measuring Center-to-Center Distance
The first step in measuring your drawer pulls is to measure the center-to-center distance. This is the distance between the two screws that attach the pull to the drawer. To measure the center-to-center distance, simply measure from the center of one screw hole to the center of the other screw hole.
Measuring Overall Length
The next step is to measure the overall length of the drawer pull. This is the distance from one end of the pull to the other end. To measure the overall length, simply measure from one end to the other end of the pull.
The projection is the distance that the drawer pull extends from the surface of the drawer. To measure the projection, simply measure from the surface of the drawer to the furthest point of the pull.
What if my drawer pull has more than two screw holes?
If your drawer pull has more than two screw holes, simply measure the center-to-center distance between any two adjacent screw holes.
What if my drawer pull has odd-shaped holes?
If your drawer pull has odd-shaped holes, measure the distance between the two furthest points on the hole.
What if my drawer pull is curved or angled?
If your drawer pull is curved or angled, measure the distance from the center of one screw hole to the furthest point on the pull.
What if I can’t find the exact same size drawer pull?
If you can’t find the exact same size drawer pull, try to find a pull that is close in size. If the new pull is slightly larger or smaller, you may need to drill new holes or fill in the old holes to make it fit.
