I am certain we have all experienced the problem of missing or lost door handle grub screws at some point. Just one tiny little screw can mean the difference in your handle working or falling off the door. If you are looking for replacement grub screws then you have definitely come to the right place.
Grub screw cone point and cup point
As you can see Door Furniture Direct stock a full range of grub screws in both cone point and cup point. A cup point grub screw will grip the handle spindle with a small circular surface area and is ideal for use against a flat faced spindle. A cone point grub screw is ideal for use with a slotted spindle where the point will locate in the slot which will in turn put pressure to spread or widen the slot ensuring a tight fit for the spindle in the handle. Grub screws are available in different thread sizes as well as different lengths. What's more, we also tell you exactly what size hexagon key you will need for each grub screw and have these available to purchase too.
Sizing grub screws for handles
Whilst it will be fairly easy to measure the length and point required it is not so easy to determine the thread size and type required, especially if the original grub screw has been lost. You may be able to locate another grub screw on the handle assembly which is likley to be the same size as the lost one. This could be measured or checked with a nut of a known size to confirm the thread size. You could alternatively make an estimate of the thread size and order a few different sizes close to your estimate. They are relatively inexpensive to buy and Door Furniture Direct sell them in small packs of 5 instead of buying bulk quantities. In the long run this might be the cheapest option and the unused ones are always handy for spares in your tool box. Unfortunately door handles do not use a standard universal size.
