If you don’t need – or want – a door knob or lever on a door, a door pull is an awesome idea. Door pulls are long and decorative, covering a relatively large part of the door. They also offer you a great, secure grip. Most door pulls lean towards sleek transitional and contemporary designs, but there is a modest selection of more ornate traditional door pulls for you to choose from. Door pulls are available in a range of stunning finishes, to serve as perfect complements for your décor.
Door pulls come in a particularly broad range of sizes, for use on a variety of door sizes and to accommodate the boldness of the look you desire. The metric used is “Center to Center,” or CTC, i.e. the distance between the centers of the two holes you must drill to install the door pull. Depending on the model, the door pull may extend beyond the hole level on one or both ends.
The following are the main subcategories:
Back to Back door pulls feature two identical pulls that are meant to be placed on opposite sides of a door. A bolt runs through the center of the door, connecting the two pulls.
Through bolt door pulls include one pull per door, with a bolt screwed in from the opposite side to secure it.
Surface mount door pulls are single pulls that are mounted from the side that the pull is placed on. The opposite side of the door remains untouched.
