The faceplate is metal but the pocket is plastic. We did not want to use the standard round pulls and liked the brushed nickel look. Installation was uneventful using a router template and upcut spiral bit on the plunge base. After some use we are noticing that the pocket has minor movement. It is likely that we will need to use adhesive as the movement increased over time.
I ordered these for 2 sliding bypass doors thinking they were flush with the door surface, but they stick up about 1/4", so they would not bypass! If you go to the full specs page you can tell. I just looked at the picture (not too carefully) and didn't catch it. Also, they feel cheap and flimsy, but they might work for what you need... my bad to not be more careful.
