I am new to DIY and bought some custom door handles; I'd like to install them on both sides of a pocket door, but I'm not sure how. I asked the manufacturer for an installation guide, but they haven't gotten back to me.
The handle has two holes, one for a
1/8" screw and one for a very small metal dowel, about
1/32" wide and
1/8" screw is
1 7/8" long and goes in
1/4" deep into the handle. It has a cap nut that covers
1/4" of the other end, and a washer that is
1/32" dowel is
3/8" long and goes in
1/8" into the handle.
My door is
1 3/4" thick.
I'd like to install handles at the same height and mirrored orientation on both sides of the door; it seems like I could do that by drilling a single hole through the door and using a dowel screw
1/4" + 1 3/4" + 1/4" = 2 1/4" long, but I'm not sure that would work. On the other hand, I don't want to have the fastener for the screw showing on the opposite side of the door, which would also prevent installation in a mirrored conformation.
