hardwarehut.com has some amazing search capabilities to help you find exactly what you are looking for. I help customers daily in their search for the perfect hardware by using our product filters. We have product filter searches on the left side of the page for every category on our site.
Our most popular category is Cabinet Knobs and Pulls. When I first start my search, I try to find out at least the most basic information of what finish, what hole spacing, and what type of hardware my customer needs.
When filtering by finish, we have the color listed first, then the texture. You could find Satin Nickel, for example, under Nickel/Satin. For hole spacing, we have it sorted by size: shortest at the top, longest at the bottom. The only exception is that the four most popular sizes sit at the top of the list. For the product type filter, we list the options in alphabetical order except for the most popular, once again, which are at the top of the listing.
There are other filters as well, like style, base material, and brand/collection. We also have an option to limit items to those made in the USA.
Since all the filters have multi-selection check boxes, you can choose several options within a filter. For example, you could choose both Nickel/Antique and Pewter/Antique. Or you could look at 3″ hole spacing and 3-3/4″ hole spacing.
Once you have your result, you can refine it by the Sort By drop down menu at the top of the results. You can sort by part number, popularity, price, or lead time. You can also set the number of items per page from 12 up to 100.
Now that you know how to search more efficiently, I have no doubt you’ll find exactly what you are looking for. Happy hunting! Have any more questions on filters? Don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer service team!
