These are the most common type of bolt used for bolt-through fixings of furniture and decorative pieces on doors and cabinets.
This particular nickel-plated M4 Bolt and Sleeve setup is designed with escutcheons and rose-mounted door handles in mind.
They are available in two common screw lengths, both 45mm and 50mm versions. Typically most applications tend to use the 50mm option, based on most doors being around 44mm thick in the UK, and therefore allowing room for the thickness of the furniture you're mounting to the door.
The 45mm version is suitable for door thickness between 41mm-45mm. Whereas the 50mm version is suitable for door thickness between 46mm-50mm. Of course as previously mentioned you should consider if the escutcheons or handles you're mounting to the door will require you to use the 50mm version even if your door thickness is 45mm.

Hi guys, my name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now I've put these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products in a little bit more detail, perhaps in the flesh so to speak to therefore then help you to make a more informed decision.
This is an incredibly popular item on our website. It's a bolt-through fixing that's designed to work with door furniture. So, if you happen to get yourselves some door furniture, etc., and maybe your door is slightly too thin to accept a wood screw or the lock case, on the inside, is actually taking up a lot of the meat, etc., then maybe you might want to consider a bolt-through fixing.
These are the actual fixings that we have here. They do come in two different lengths. So, we've got the 50-millimetre one here, but the idea is quite straightforward. On the inside or the outside, depending on which way you decide to use these, you've go yourself this fixing here, if I can take that out. That fixing there will sit in the recess of the actual rose or the handle assembly that you have and then you would drill yourself a hole all the way through the door. Then you would screw the two together and by screwing the two together you are, in effect, clamping the handles onto the door, which makes for a good, stronger fixing than maybe some wood screws would have.
Now this particular one, as I've mentioned is 45 millimetres. There is another size available as well and one side, you'll see, you've got a Phillips head there, you can zoom down on that, and then on the other side then, it's a standard flat head so you'd use the flat blade there to just hold it there and you'd screw the two together.
There's not really much more that could be said. I'll just give you sort of an idea of the measurement of the diameter of this particular piece here because this is the largest part of the whole unit. That's 4.9 millimetres there, so that give you some sort of idea of the size of the hole that you'll need in the furniture. You may have to slightly enlarge it just a little bit perhaps.
But there you go, guys. There's not much to say, but at least it give you the opportunity to see it in the flesh, so to speak. But listen, if you do need more info on this or any of the products that we have, you can always pop us over an e-mail, use the live chat, or simply do it the old-fashioned way pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you and more importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our customers.
So, from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in and catch up with you real soon. Take care now.
