Once you have chosen the right concealed handle for your sliding doors, it's time to install it. While the installation process may vary depending on the type of handle and door, here is a general step-by-step guide to help you get started.
1. Gather Tools and Materials
Before you begin the installation, you need to gather the necessary tools and materials. These include a drill, screws, a screwdriver, a measuring tape, a pencil, and of course, your concealed handle. Make sure you have the right size drill bit for the screws, and that the screws are long enough to reach the door frame.
2. Measure and Mark
The next step is to measure and mark the location of the handle on your sliding door. Use a measuring tape to determine the center of the door, and mark it with a pencil. Then, using the handle as a guide, mark the position of the screws on the door frame.
3. Drill Holes
Once you have marked the screw positions, it's time to drill the holes. Use the drill bit to create pilot holes in the screw positions. Make sure the holes are deep enough to accommodate the screws, but not too deep that you damage the door panel.
4. Install the Handle
With the holes drilled, it's time to install the handle. Position the handle over the holes and insert the screws through the back of the handle and into the pilot holes. Use a screwdriver to tighten the screws to secure the handle in place.
5. Test the Operation
Once the handle is installed, test its operation to ensure it is working correctly. Open and close the sliding door several times to verify that the handle is secure and does not interfere with the door's movement. Make any necessary adjustments to the handle or door alignment if needed.
Finally, once you have verified that the handle is installed and operational, it's time to finish the installation. This can include cleaning the door surface, installing cover plates to hide the screw heads, or adding any additional accessories to the handle.
Installing a concealed handle for your sliding doors can be a simple and effective way to upgrade your home or office. By following these steps, you can install a handle that enhances the function, safety, and aesthetics of your sliding door.
