Problem-Solving Hardware You Didn’t Know You Needed
There’s some hardware you may not even realize exists until you need it for one of your own home projects. We’re sharing some of those handy products we offer on our sister site, HGH Hardware Supply.
Touch-Up Markers Fill Sticks
Touch-Up Solutions’ fill sticks give homeowners a quick fix for scratched cabinets and other furniture. They come in a variety of shades, so it’s easy to find one that matches your cabinet or furniture color. This handy product fills the in scratches and dings, making old furniture new again with a few swipes. Touch-Up Solutions has a helpful video on how to use the fill sticks.
Have cabinet doors or drawers that slam shut? If you’re not ready to replace your hinges with a soft-close option, rubber bumpers can at least dampen the sound. Bumpers are self-adhesive and attach to cabinet doors and drawers to prevent a loud close or any scratching. We have a blog post on bumpers over on our HGH Hardware Supply website that gives a better idea of how they’re used.
Another option for loud cabinets is a soft-close adapter. UniSoft from Grass is a soft-close adapter that mounts to the corner of a cabinet door apart from the hinge. You can also easily control and adjust the speed in which the door closes.
You more than likely know what pilasters are even if you may not recognize them by name. Pilasters are mounted on the sides of cabinets or bookcases and are used with clips to hold shelving. Shelf pins are used for a less-obvious look when there are drilled holes on each side of the cabinet or bookcase.
