If you have the corresponding hole centre distance that matches our handle size then yes however, we always advise you to check your current setup and if necessary measure the current hole distance of your cabinet/door before purchase.

A common handle size has a centre hole distance 128(mm) and drill hole is typically 4(mm) to fit an M4 screw.

We recommend to use the washers provided as this gives more stability between the handle and the surface in which you are mounting it the handle to.

If you need to make brand new holes it is relatively easy to do, there are plenty of tutorials online especially on YouTube, we advise to use the proper tools necessary and if unsure of how to install the handles by drilling new holes then seek a professional services to avoid damaging your furniture or the products.

We use solid brass for the majority of our products which has antimicrobial benefits but we do recommend to clean your products regularly for good hygiene especially in high traffic places, it will generally keep it in good condition and also will keep your space looking fresh.

We use a hard-wearing lacquer to protect the brass however, all products are subject to ageing and appearance may naturally change over time depending on usage.

Some of the brass products may acquire a warm patina with age which is something to look forward to in years to come.
