Bi-Fold Door handle replacement


We have metal Bi-Fold doors that need new handles. The handles are about 2 inches wide, to be put only on the outside of the doors which are thin metal surface. Unfortunately the handles are sold with 1"-1 1/2" screws which are too long for the job. We need some sort of spacer to fill in the lenght of the screw, since we aren't able to cut the screws. Any ideas? Thanks

Take the screws that come with the new pulls to a hardware store and buy shorter screws.
