New Adjustable Legs – Now IN STOCK

Garage leg pic

I’m really excited to show off our newest adjustable legs.

These aren’t your typical garage cabinet legs.

They come in 4 finishes – white, black, chrome and stainless steel.

The finish on these legs makes them nice enough to use in a mudroom, wall unit or laundry room.

While the steel triangle mounting plate will prevent this leg from being kicked out or snapping when carrying cabinets in.  They are rated at 770 lbs. per leg and have ¾” of adjustability.

Metal Garage Leg

We currently have 4”, 5”, 6” and 8” in stock.

If you are looking for a metal leg with more adjustment and aren’t as concerned with the finish.

I have one that will replace those black plastic legs at a very similar price.

Metal Garage Leg

They are rated at 785 lbs. per leg and adjustable from 4” – 6-11/16”.

Don’t like either of these options?

We have a complete catalog dedicated to legs and casters.

Hook it UP!

When was the last time you reviewed your hook offering?

Sure that $.80 coat and hat hook is perfect for those on a budget, but what about a higher-end client?

You offer your clients different options for handles and knobs so why not hooks?

Hooks are another easy way for you to increase your average sale and your profits.

There isn’t any extra labor involved in installing a $3, $5 or even $7 hook vs installing an $.80 one.

Richelieu has a 26-page catalog dedicated to hooks.  We definitely have a hook that will fit your style, function and budget.

Here are a handful of my favorite options –

Utility hooks –

Transitional hooks –

Concealed Fasteners –

I know you’re thinking Richie – I can’t offer all of these options – my customer will never make a decision.

I totally agree – but if you offer 3 price points –  “Good, Better, Best”

Is it possible that 50% of the hook racks you sell go from “good” to “better”?

How much extra money does that put in your pocket at the end of the year?

I would love to hear from you – what are your thoughts?

Have a great week!

Brass is Back Baby!

No not that ugly bright yellow, plastic looking brass that shows every scratch.

Or that bright pink rose gold that came and went.

This is an elegant satin champagne gold finish also known as iPhone gold – haha!

Seriously the most popular question that I have received in the last 30 days is what decorative hardware is available in gold.

Here are some of my favorites.

Along with our new champagne gold finish we also added polished nickel, honey bronze and matte black. These are the hottest finishes right now and coming soon to a closet near you.

Are you attending KBIS next week?

Stop by our booth #S5016 to see our new decorative hardware offering along with the latest in lighting, decorative panels, and of course hardware.

If not let me know if you are ready to expand your decorative hardware offering – it’s the easiest way to make your company more profitable.
