KOOFIZO Solid Square Bar Cabinet Handle – Oil Rubbed Bronze Furniture Pull
Top Positive Review
It took us a couple months to work up the courage to finally install these handles since we were so scared to drill into the cabinets in our brand new house, but I’m so glad we finally did! They look amazing! They really add that finishing touch. The 6.3 inch handles were perfect.
We used the drilling template that was included with the handles. It was just printed on the lid of the box and you have to cut it out which caused some extra work making sure everything was straight before drilling. Also, the markings on the template were just a touch too close together so the first couple we drilled were a little off before we realized and started drilling towards the outside edge of the mark. I marked the location for the holes by placing a piece of blue painters tape on each door/drawer first. Since our cabinets are dark, this helped be able to see the marks and also saved time cleaning up.
For the doors, I lined up the template with the decorative edge and marked the dots, then used a level (trust me, you’ll need one) to make sure they were straight vertically (they almost never were thanks to the uneven edge of the self-cut-out template) and mark a vertical level line. Do the same on the door next to it, then use the level to make sure the dots from the template are level with the ones on the door next to it. We had a lot of trouble here since not all of the doors were hung perfectly level with each other. I made a horizontal line at the top marks and bottom marks, made sure the distance between them matched the template, then drilled at the intersection of the level lines.
For the drawers, I measured the width of the drawer and divided by 2 to find the center point. The template has an arrow on it for the center, so I lined that up with my center point and aligned the top of the template with the top of the drawer front. The template has several rows of dots so I chose the one that was about even with the vertical center and marked the dots. I then used the level to make sure the dots were level and made adjustments as needed.
Overall, it took my husband and me about 4 hours to install 30 handles in our kitchen with me measuring and marking them and him drilling the holes and installing the handles.
Top Critical Review
The look of this hardware is quite nice. Although they’re advertised as ‘solid’, they are light weight. Not much substance to them. The break-away screws are a nightmare. Today, I’m going to the hardware store to see if I can get the right size (length and thread) screws that do not need modification. I’m hoping the thread will be easy to match, but the screws I’m replacing have a different thread and they are not interchangeable with the break-away screws. Fingers crossed I’m successful at Ace Hardware!
