Be very careful how you install this. Also, if you have a non-standard width for installation, you will have to trim the bar piece. Do this from the END, not the MIDDLE. You must also allow for the end piece, so best advice is to measure very carefully before doing any cuts. A jigsaw with a fine metal blade works well, but you need to take care not to scratch the surface - secure it by hand in a wet towel that won't slip and have your helper lean on it while you cut it. My only disappointment is that this is a two piece rod with a joiner piece that one half slides on to. I would have preferred a single rod for better strength. The finish is so far holding up very well, but you may want to consider hotel-type shower curtain rings.

The bar came in 2 pieces, and the finish is not the same on each piece. The finish on one piece is very dark while the finish on the second piece is lighter and has more of a brushed look. Either finish would look good if it were consistent on both pieces.
The product arrived in a timely manner; it was exactly what the picture in the website showed. Installation instructions were not included in the packaging, a special bit was needed to install on tile but other than that it was fairly simple to install. The finish is very nice and the color is perfect for the Oil Rubbed Bronze fixtures in our bathrooms.
As a first time internet customer, I had my reservations about purchasing merchandise via the world wide net. Your company eased all of my fears. The towel bar I purchased is beautiful and of high quality. The delivery only took a couple of days. I am so happy with my experience that I will be ordering more merchandise from you in the near future!
My wife and I installed 40 of these classy looking pulls today. Our Kitchen and Laundry room look great with this hardware installed. The included screws were the right length for all the cabinet doors, but I had to buy screws 1/2" longer for the drawers.
We ordered the birdcage pulls for the drawers in our kitchen and the knobs for the cabinets. We love the way they look and the installation was fairly easy. I have two caveats, however. Make sure you order a few extras because one of the pulls was tarnished looking and so we did not use it. Also, the screws for the pulls were not long enough for our drawers so we had to buy different screws for them. Overall, we love the look of this product and also they just feel good in our hands when using them. They are very smooth and solid feeling.
I had purchased only a few of these knobs from Home Depot several years ago. I loved them with my decor. When I saw them on your website with the price even lower than Home Depot I was thrilled and decided to remove all my kitchen knobs and replace them with your birdcage knobs. They look great. They are great quality. They were easy to install and most important were a great price.
I ordered a sample because the picture looked like a pull that would suit or needs. It arrived and we put it on our new cabinets and we decided to purchase based on looks and quality.The sample was heavy,solid and the pull was nicely constructed. I ordered 39 of them. After they arrived i was very disappointed in the quality of the product.I compared the sample to the ones that I purchased and the pulls were not solid material all the way around. Basically they looked like the were stamped out of the material instead of being casted to form one shape.
Installation is a little difficult, required 2 drillings. One for the mounting screw, and another larger hole for the counter sinking to accommodate recessed threads / not a flush mount. Quality is very good.
I purchased the matte, or flat black finish. A few had very small chips in the finish. I honestly don't know if they were there prior to me receiving or if I had made the chips myself. Regardless, it should be something to be aware of if you intend to purchase. I have only had these a short while, so I can't comment on their durability. They do feel nice and of good quality. I could not use the supplied screws, they were way too long. This of course will vary for everyone, but seeing that these pulls have about a 1/4" recess that fits nicely into furniture for extra stability, you would think they might make the screws that much shorter. Even using extra washers to cover the added length would not work for me - they were just way too long.
The knobs were exactly what I needed. They arrived quickly and look beautiful on my cabinets. I had shopped around at one of those big home improvement stores and their selection and quality could not compare. I am glad that I chose to check out this website before purchasing knobs that I did not really like and were overpriced.
