New Twist on Pull Knobs

Postby Midnightsun » October 6th, 2018, 4:33 am

My wife has these great ideas. She asked me to find some mini cleats to replace most all the pull knobs of the cabinets and drawers on the boat. Oddly enough they were rather inexpensive being they are polished stainless steel @ slightly more than $6 cdn each delivered. Heck even an el cheapo Home Depot round plain knob is as much if not more. :banghead: Chose the 4" model which is just right.https://www.banggood.com/316-Stainless- ... &ID=518173 The challenge here was to hide a single hole in the center left by the single hole factory knob. Low and behold there are cleats that do cover this. Used SS #8 oval head sheet metal Philips screws 1 1/2" long to secure. https://www.amazon.com/Screws-Phillips-Stainless-Self-tapping-Quantity/dp/B01LZJT4SD/ref=sr_1_4?s=industrial&ie=UTF8&qid=1538835817&sr=1-4&keywords=stainless+oval+head+sheet+metal+bright+finish+1+1%2F2%22 The picture does not do them justice, looks stunning in person.

Yep, several times and never an issue. Actually just went to my mail box 1 hr ago and picked up the second order of cleats as we ended up adding more because we liked them so much. Total ordered 18. :-D Delivery is normally around 10-14 days.
