Aubuchon Hardware

Aubuchon Hardware has been in business for over 95 years, with 140 stores throughout New England.  Their online presence is equally impressive with a wide selection of both common and unusual hardware items and supplies.  Their website is powered by DoItBest, a hardware co-op with over 4000 members, large and small, giving the online shopper a great selection of products.

The Bolt Depot

Bolt Depot offers one of the largest selections of bolts, nuts, screws and fasteners you will find anywhere, on or off line! If there's an "oddball" screw or bolt you need, they probably have it!  They have just added new free fastener tools which allow you to print of a full size image of US and Metric bolts so you can lay a bolt right on the page for easy identification.  No order too large or small!

CabinetParts.com

CabinetParts.com features new and replacement hardware for cabinet applications.  Their stock includes hinges including "Euro" style hinges by Blum, Mepla, Salice or Grass, drawer slides, and other accessories.  They also sell WilsonArt laminates and child-proof security devices to keep the kids out of the cabinets!

Their products include knobs, pulls, hinges, slides, hooks, screws, fasteners, and wood trim used by furniture manufacturers.

Quantity discounts to the industry are available for qualified businesses.

Grainger

On the cover of the GRAINGER catalogue, they boldly say "It's in here."   They aren't lying!  I consider the GRAINGER catalog more than a catalog... I consider it a major handyman reference work!  Not only do they sell an unbelievable variety of electrical, plumbing, and miscellaneous hardware, motors, pumps, and testing equipment... they also have lots of detailed information on their products.  And, if you can't quite figure out whether WX853 or WX854 best suits your needs, you can call and talk to a well informed sales person.  They are primarily oriented towards "professionals" so hide your "weekend warrior" hat when you call or visit their site!

Handles Accessories

Find the Entry Door Handle you're looking for at Handles Accessories. Choose from Brass, Chrome, Wrought Iron, Gold and more. All handles are exceptional quality, in sensational designs.

Hardware Source

Hardware Source claims to be the "most complete source of hinges", and after looking over their catalog I have to agree!  Of course, they do sell the "bread and butter" butt hinges and cabinet hinges, but their inventory goes way beyond that to specialty items such as chest and box hinges, furniture hinges and pivot door hinges.  About the only thing that was missing from their catalog was so-called "Euro" hinges... mortised hinges that have become increasingly common in kitchen and bathroom cabinets.

Inventex

Genuine replacements parts are generally regarded as better than so-called generic parts. Canadian-based INVENTEX only sells genuine replacement parts from nearly 100 manufacturers, including but not limited to heating, ventilation, hand dryers, and emergency lighting.  This includes parts for range hoods and bathroom exhaust fans!   They will work with you to find the right part for your needs, and are very consumer friendly.

Johnson Hardware

For over 25 years, manufacturers have used Johnson Hardware as the gold standard for billfold, pocket and bypassing (sliding) door hardware.  They sell a full access hardware kit for bi-fold doors that gives 100% jamp-to-jamb access! Their hardware is widely available through hardware stores, home stores and lumberyards.  If you have a choice between one of the other brands and Johnson, you can't go wrong with Johnson!

KitchenCabinetHardware.Com

The SnapToggle... manufactured by Mechanical Plastics

THE SNAPTOGGLE is one of NH's favorite anchors… strong and easy to install with a REUSABLE toggle… unlike other toggle bolts! The two big pluses are 1) the toggle does not drop into the wall if you need to extract the bolt and 2) it requires a much smaller hole than a similarly-sized standard toggle… especially important in drilling hard materials such as ceramic tile. Learn about them first online... then try to find them at a local store. Be forewarned... they are not widely available, but you can order them direct online! More info on anchors via our own anchor article... click HERE.
