Tricky Escapes: The Magic Of Locks, Keys, And Safes

Good day. I'm Joe Seymour and I work part-time as a magician. Recently, I've had to learn a few new tricks because, quite frankly, people aren't impressed with disappearing coins anymore. My new repertoire involves various tricks that use locks, keys, and safes as props. I've actually become quite fixated on all the different types I've found and how they work. My best trick these days is getting an audience member to put money in a safe and lock it with their own combination. Even in a digital world, people love seeing how quickly I can "crack the code". My newfound fascination with locks, keys, and safes has led me to seek out others who have a little know-how in this area. Hopefully, you'll enjoy my blog and my research will help me to gain ideas for new tricks. Just turn the key and step on in.

Choosing the Right Pull Handles

Whether you are refurbishing your kitchen, or just replacing a broken handle, it can be surprising how much choice there is when looking at pull handles. While there are a variety of pull handles, it doesn't need to be overwhelming trying to choose the right one for your project. 

Pull handles come in a variety of sizes, and what size you will need will depend on the purpose of the handle. Drawers will typically have relatively small handles, cupboards will have slightly larger handles, and full-size doors will of course have much bigger handles. Choose your handle not just based on the size of the handle needed, but also pay attention if the fixtures must be a specific width a part if installing the handle somewhere where there are already holes.

There are a variety of materials that pull handles may be made from. Choosing the right one will depend on how durable you need the handle to be and its purpose. Plastic handles can be a very budget solution, but may not last for very long as they may chip or break. There are coated plastic handles that are still budget friendly but can provide the appearance of metal handles, but this effect will be ruined if the coating peels or scratches away. Real metal handles are the most durable, but if you are buying a large quantity may cost more.

Just as they come in different sizes and materials, pull handles come in a variety of styles. Cup handles look exactly how they sound, like small cups. These can be very stylish and are often styles in an old-fashioned way in metals such as brass. Bow handles are rounded handles, typically in a D-shape. These are more modern and are usually larger than cup handles. Knob handles typically only require one screw each, and are usually used for drawers. One or two knob handles may be installed depending on how large the drawer is. Of course for full-sized doors, the style of the handle will typically be determined by the door you are installing it on as a flimsy handle may break off, where as a bulky handle may look out of place.

If you are unsure what handle to choose, speak to your supplier or a local hardware shop for advice. They will be able to recommend a solution based on your needs. But make sure you shop around to make sure you get the best deal and the best quality.
