DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with limited grasp to open drawers with knob pulls. The knobs can be removed and a length of parachute cord (available in hardware stores) threaded through the holes and knotted inside the drawer. In lieu of removing the knobs, cut a length of cord several inches longer than the distance between the two knobs, then form and knot a loop at each end large enough to slip over the knobs.
