Do you need to remove a drawer pull but don’t have a screwdriver? Or maybe you just don’t want to use a screwdriver because you’re afraid of damaging the drawer or the pull. Whatever the reason, there is a way to remove those pesky drawer pulls without using any screws! In this blog post, we will show you how to do it.
Steps in Removing a Drawer Pull Without Screws
First, you will need to find something that can act as a pry bar. A butter knife or a flathead screwdriver will work just fine. Once you have your pry bar, insert it between the drawer pull and the drawer itself. Then, apply pressure to the pry bar until the drawer pull pops off.
To achieve this, you will need;
What to Use
1. A putty knife
Start by prying up one end of the drawer pull with the putty knife. You may need to use a little force, but be careful not to damage the wood. Once you have the first end pried up, work your way around the rest of the pull until it is completely detached from the drawer.
2. A hairdryer
If the drawer pull is still attached but not by screws, then it may be glued on. In this case, you will need to heat up the glue in order to detach the pull. To do this, simply hold a hairdryer up to the drawer pull for a few minutes until the glue has melted. Once the glue is melted, you should be able to easily remove the drawer pull.
3. A flathead screwdriver
If the drawer pull is attached by screws, then you will need to remove the screws in order to take off the pull. Simply insert the flathead screwdriver into the holes of the screws and unscrew them. Once all of the screws have been removed, the drawer pull should come right off.
4. Pry Bar
If the drawer pull is attached but there are no screws or glue holding it on, then it may be held on by a pin. In this case, you will need to use a pry bar to remove the drawer pull. Insert the pry bar into the hole of the drawer pull and apply pressure until the pull pops off.
Removing drawer pulls without screws is actually quite easy! All you need is a little bit of know-how and the right tools. With these four methods, you should be able to remove any drawer pull, no matter how it is attached. So go ahead and give it a try!
