Front / Concealed Mount Handles
This is used on doors where you want the handle on the front of the door only. This means you can have the handle attached on one side of the door without having anything protruding on the other side. This also allows you to use different handles for each side of the door. This system is applicable for Wood Doors only. The diagrams below, demonstrate how this works. Images 4 & 5 show the final result. Image 6 shows the collar is placed on the door with a screw inserted through the collar. The screw is then driven into the door. The handle is placed over the top of the collar, the grub screws are tightened with a hex key (supplied) to hold the handle securely in place as shown.
These Handles are Front/Concealed Mount:

Most of the Back to Back Mount handles can be modified to be suitable for Front / Concealed Mount.
Rear Mount / Back Mount for Refrigerator Handles
This is used on doors where you want the handle on the front of the door only. This is ideal for mounting the handle onto the timber panels of Refrigerator doors. Which means you can have the handle attached on one side of the door with only a cover plate protruding on the other side. This system is also suitable for Timber, Glass and Aluminum doors. It is the strongest mounting option. The diagrams below, demonstrate how this works. Images 7 & 8 show the final result. Image 9 shows a hole is drilled through the door, a bolt is inserted through the hole. The bolt is screwed into the handle to hold the it securely in place as shown. Most of the Back to Back Mount Handles can be converted to Back mount configuration;
Left and Right Hand Handles
The following Handles come in left and right versions;
The others can be used as either left or right. When you order a set of two we always send one of each. If you order a single handle, you will need to tell us which one you want. To make it easier for you to decide if you want a left or right handle the images below show what to look for. The usual way to decide is to look at the door from the outside. Look for the hinges on the door, whichever side the hinges are on, tells you what handles you need. If the hinges are on the Left as you look from the outside of the front door then you will need a Left hand handle on the front of the door. (As shown in image 1) Also, if the hinges are on the Right as you look from the outside of the front door then you will need a Right hand handle on the front of the door. (As shown in image 3).
