These inset handles are designed to be virtually flush-fitting, where projecting handles or knobs are not suitable or desired for the application.
This is most commonly on drawer or cupboard units where free space is minimal and therefore maximising on the usable space is of utmost importance, or even moreso on sliding door systems such as the ever more popular 'pocket' door systems which are on the rise.
These particular handles are designed to be fitted by means of screw-fixings from the back / inside of the unit, or can also be fitted by means of 'harpoon' fitting, meaning you can simply push them into a recess hole, and the handles will be fixed in by means of a serrated top and bottom grip on the recessed part of the handle.
Screws are not included with these as it depends entirely on the thickness of the unit panel you're fitting them to, and also because they don't require screw fitting due to the harpoon fitting ability.

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 we're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customer, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in perhaps a little bit more detail than in the stock image or a bit of descriptive text may give. Today I want to talk to you about an inset handle that we have on our website. It's actually quite a nice mature sort of product really. It's obviously designed for a sliding door or perhaps a cabinet or a cupboard or even a drawer perhaps.
The idea is that once you fit it, you would be able to put your hands in here and be able to pull open the cupboard, the drawer, or perhaps if you had it on a pocket sliding door systems, then you would be able to pull the door towards you back and forth like that. So, it has quite a few different multiple choices of use, etc. Now the fixings on these is a twofold sort of style of fixing. You can either have what they call in the industry a harpoon fixing, in other words you would cut the shape of the hole and then these serrations on the side here on either side you would be able to push it in and put it into place by forcing it in against these rubber stops.
Or alternatively, you do have screw fixings there so you can screw from the other side if you need to do so. Now this particular one comes in this lovely satin finish there as you can see. It can actually break apart into two sections so when you're going to fit these, etc., it allows you to play with the two sections there as you can see.
What I'll do now is quite important in these particular type of fittings is we need to get some accurate measurements because when you start cutting into timber you want to make sure that, you know, it's not going to end up cutting out too far, etc. So the measurements are specific on our website but while I'm here I'll give you just a few quick ones here. So from there to there we've got a measurement there of a 104mm and then the height there of the metal itself is 50mm there.
Now it's depth if I was to pop out on the side there like that, you'd probably could get this better than me. If you have a look at that there you see the depth there of the actual top counter unit there, if that gives you some sort of idea as to how deep you need to go in. So what you would also do as well while I'm here if you do want to screw fixing let me get some fixing centres for you just in case. I'm talking you would want to give a millimetre to two depending on the accuracy there, we're talking about 96 millimetres fixing centres there. So when you go to use this as you can see I can get basically all my forefingers in here quite easily to be able to pull or slide this particular inset handle.
So there you go, guys. There's not much more that I can say but if you need a bit more information on this or any of the products that we have, by all means, pop us over an email, use the live chat that we have, or simply give us a call. Either way, we'd love to hear from you. More importantly, we would love to see you as a customer. So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in, and we'll catch up with you real soon. Take care and bye-bye now.
