Some tips for repairing filing cabinet handles are to tighten holding screws, replace stripped screws and plug gaps with wood filler. These fixes help restore loose handles to their tight, study positions.
Before going to the hardware store, make sure to count the exact number of handles needed for the repair or update. Estimating the amount can cost time and money.
Pull handles are attached to filing cabinets with two screws on each end. When replacing the handles, measure the distance between the screws to make sure the replacement handles will fit onto the cabinet properly. When updating from a two-hole handle to a one-hole knob, choose hardware with back plates to cover door scratches and holes.
