As time went on styles of knobs came and went and it was only in more modern times that the door knobs we used seemed to become a bit more boring and just looked at as things that are meant to open a door. Its possible the boring state of todays door knobs is what caused many hardware manufacturers to go back in time and start lines of pieces that are reproductions of those fascinating antique door knobs. Those reproductions have become a major income for those companies as people continually look for new ways to dress up their home.
Try to avoid abrasive cleaning materials as they may damage the porcelain. You can buy porcelain door knobs from any of the door hardware manufacturers. Most of the models come with a limited lifetime mechanical warranty. For convenience rosettes spindles and other mounting accessories are provided with the porcelain door knobs. A door knob is a significant part of our home and needs to be replaced if it gets damaged or ruined. We use our knobs a good number of times per day. That means they are used millions of times in a year.
The kind of door knob you need depends on whether or not they are an exterior door or an interior door. Exterior door knobs will certainly be required to have a good lock on the door and are required to be weather resistant and a more heavy duty kind door knob than an interior knob set. Any time you replace the outside door knob you are going to have a deadbolt latch which should be replaced at the same time so that you can have matching keys for each of the locks. Interior doors have a practical door knob and are available in two standard general sizes; 2-3/8 inches and also 2-3/4 in.
Look at the base of the knob close to the door itself and you will see a small hole with a little separation inside of it. Take a key like piece of metal that is included in the new doorknob set and put it in the small hole prying it open. Pull the door knob out as you pry the hole until it comes out completely. You will have removed the decorative part of the mechanism and the operative part will be exposed. Against the door itself you will see a round piece of metal which is held in place by two large screws remove these screws all the way.
