DO IT YOURSELF PURPOSE: To make dresser drawers easier to open for senior and individuals with arthritis, use of only one hand or fine motor or grasping disabilities. The existing knobs can be removed and replaced with eye bolts with a piece of soft rope or cord tied between them, creating a single handle that extends across the drawer and enables the user to open the drawer with one hand. A modification of this option would be to leave the existing knobs in place and tie the rope between the knobs. MATERIALS: Eye bolts and rope or cord. SKILLS REQUIRED: Basic carpentry skills.
