Bail Handles are secured using 8-32 machine screws. Length supplied is determined by manufacturer. While supplied screw length is generally useful, occasionally a different size is required. Please let us know if you need a specific length. To determine the correct size: measure wood thickness and add 1/4".
As with all hardware I've purchased from Paxton, these are top quality and as described. I used them on a late 1800's side-by-side secretary. They were the closest I could find to the shape of the original pulls and of equal or better quality.
Swan Neck Handles 3" Bail
Very happy with purchase. Very similar to the ones I was trying to match. Nice weight to them. Well made. Fits well. Looking forward to them getting a patina since they are not coated.
Changed the handles on my 1920s bureau. This swan neck design made the bureau look completely different and stylish.
