Raised in California and transplanted to Utah. Married my college sweetheart from Montana, and we are raising 4 nuggets together. I love all things DIY projects and doing them on a budget. I don’t mind messing up and am ok with the 90/10 rule - nothing is perfect over here and it’s fine by me! Encouraging all ‘wanna-be’ DIYers to just get out there and try it! You will be so glad you did.”
Adding new hardware to your kitchen can create a beautiful fresh look at an inexpensive price. If you have existing hardware, you will need to use hardware that fits the same holes. I recently discovered a new line from Liberty Hardware that is sold at The Home Depot called Adjusta-Pull™ Cabinet Hardware. Let me show you how to easily replace your kitchen hardware in just an afternoon.
When changing out hardware, you must measure the exact distance between holes to ensure a proper fit for your new hardware. Even the slightest mistake in measurement and your hardware will not fit tightly, or will not fit at all. Last year I did this exact thing and as a result I was sadly disappointed when my new hardware arrived and it did not fit into my existing holes.
The Liberty Adjusta-Pull™ Cabinet Hardware are a new product sold at The Home Depot and I was thrilled they asked me to try these out. It was exactly what I was looking for. The pulls come in 6 different styles with 2 different lengths and in 3 different finishes. They also have matching knobs to match the pulls. These make it so easy to replace your kitchen hardware.
They are made to adjust (basically slide onto the screws) so that you do not have to worry about the exact length of your previous holes to add new hardware. You can also worry less when drilling new holes because of this adjustable feature.
Here is a link to order the pulls directly from The Home Depot:
I used the Inclination 4 inch Liberty Adjusta-Pull™ Cabinet Hardware in Champagne Bronze with matching Cabinet Knob. Hoping to add a completely different look to our kitchen, I felt like the square design with a flat front face was perfect. There were great options to choose from and the Inclination was the best one for me.
Changing out the knobs was very simple and just took a few minutes for 10 changes. I loved the new champagne bronze look and how it modernized the kitchen. You can use a manual screwdriver or a hand drill.
Next up was the pulls. The Liberty Adjusta-Pull™ Cabinet Hardware comes with easy instructions to follow along with. I used an electric drill to help it go faster, but you can use a screwdriver to remove the old pulls. Additionally I made sure to wash the front of the cabinet before installing the new pulls.
I like to replace the screws into the old pulls so they do not get lost. You can sell them or keep for later. Set that aside and open the bag of your first pull, setting out the contents.
► Choose the screws that fit the length you need (I needed the longer set).
► Insert the screw into the FRONT of the cabinet or drawer.
► On the end of the screw (this will be inside the door or drawer), first add on the washer and then the nut second. Do not screw on tight yet, this will come after you add the pull on.
► Pull out the heads of the screws as far as they can go without releasing the washers and nuts.
► You will then start to slide on the pull over the screws. Move it the spot you would like, making sure it is even and centered.
► Once the pull is in place, you will use the wing nut to tighten the nut and washer securely on to the screw. This is how the pulls stay on correctly.
► Repeat on all the rest of the pulls in your kitchen!
These Liberty Adjusta-Pull™ Cabinet Hardware Pulls and Knobs are seriously so easy to install, anyone can do it. The price can’t be beat and I love all the different options they carry. It added a beautiful element to our kitchen. I love how easy it was to replace my kitchen hardware!
