Should I worry about knobs with single screws?

Ott2July 14, 2013

Will a good quality knob/pull that is attached properly stay put? Or, will it still tend to twist a bit and mess up my cabinet finish?
I am looking at some Ashley Norton finger pulls and/or knobs that would be attached to the drawer with a single screw. The bases of the knobs/pulls I am considering are not round.
Would I be risking cabinet finish and/or forever straightening knobs?
Five houses so far, and I don't think any have had knobs!

If they are properly installed (countersunk heads and to screw not too long) then there will be no issues.

Make sure your knob has an "anti-twist" pin on the mounting area to keep it from spinning around. Better quality hardware will have this feature. See attached link from Top Knobs for discussion. (Feature is not exclusive to that brand.)
