Rated 3 out of 5 by tsvidogg Poor quality
We bought these to make a craigslist-purchased dresser more appropriate for the nursery. They look nice, but they were pretty annoying to install and are pretty poor quality. First of all, most drawer or cabinet pulls are installed by using a screw on the inside of the drawer. Lord knows why these pulls are installed with washers and nuts. Also, they come with two washers and two nuts, which is pretty nonsensical, since the knobs are meant to be installed without nuts or washers on the outside of the drawer, so why two washers and two nuts? Finally, the bolts are ABSURDLY long. I can't imagine any dresser that would work with these knobs without using bolt cutters to cut the bolt down to appropriate size.
Here's how we solved this, and it looks great but it was relatively annoying. We bought a bolt cutter and cut every bolt down to size. The problem with that is that the cut end of the bolt often has pretty sharp edges to it. So we went to the hardware store and bought acorn nuts for every handle. We tossed the hex nuts that came we the bolts and used just one washer and one acorn nut for each handle. Again, lord knows why these come with two bolts and two washers each.
The knobs are now fully installed, they look great, they are the right length, and there are no sharp edges inside the drawer.
One last annoying thing. About a third of the knobs cracked at the base during the tightening process. Doesn't look like it'll affect anything at this point because the bolt and nut will keep the part that cracked off the main part of the handle pretty much in place. But it's still annoying.

These drawer pulls were just what was needed to punch up the playfulness in my daughter's nursery. Natural variations in color add to the uniqueness of each piece. Slightly shorter screws would be helpful though and/or rubber tips. For safety reasons I did need to purchase those at a hardware store but in an adult's room this would be much less of a concern.
