Privacy and passage knobs turn and operate a latch mechanism - the difference is privacy style knobs have a push pin lock (these are generally used on bathrooms or bedrooms). Single dummy and double dummy knobs do not turn or operate a latch mechanism - a single dummy knob is one knob on the exterior side of the door while a double dummy is a knob on either side of one door. Note: Most double dummy knobs cannot be used on two separate doors. Knobs come in a variety of materials and designs. Glass or solid brass door knobs are a great choice because they add a lot of extra detail to your door. As door knob sets age they can become dented or scratched so replacing them with high quality sets is important.
If youre aiming to convey a sense of maturity and class into this room then reeded door knobs could prove an effective product to invest in although they may be equally well-suited when placed in a kitchen bathroom or study. Featuring smooth lines these items are available in a range of materials - such as satin nickel and polished chrome - and once they are fitted could quickly lend a place some much-need aesthetic appeal. However if you want something a little bit different why not consider opting for a door knob that is made out of glass? A wide selection of glass knobs can be purchased including those that are spherical and have a smooth surface while others are available in cut-crystal.
For instance during the 60s and 70s there was a drive to change out the antique door knobs to match the fashions of the time. Now 30 years later those knobs may seem antiquated but not in the right way. Now you can fix things by getting the real antique door knobs that match your home and change them back. The best way to know if your home needs a change back to antique door knobs is to ask it. That doesnt mean you need to talk to the walls or anything but as you walk around your house take notice of the doors.
A square shaped rod runs through your door knob it is called the spindle. In the hole of the door put this through the latch mechanism in the hole. If your spindle is not already attached slide it through the hole. Line up the other on the other side. Make sure the square shape of the spindle fits into the square hole. Tighten the screws to the mounting plates pressing them together. To make sure it is lined up correctly open and close. Once you are satisfied with the function begin to attach the rosette that covers the mounting plate. Your new door knob is now installed.
