Most door knob manufacturers are also wholesale suppliers and exporters. The commonly used materials for making door knobs are brass iron wood wire ceramic stainless steel and aluminum. Door knob is a handle used for opening and closing a door. Door knobs are often sold as complete locksets. Porcelain door knob/rosette assemblies are offered for both sides of the door. Passage/privacy sets consists of a latch faceplate and strikeplate. Wholesale door knobs are available for different purposes such as passage privacy etc. Dummy door knobs are also available which are non-functioning and are used on closets and French doors.
Soon a lock would be added to a door. That made not only a way to keep the door from accidentally opening but also a way to intentionally keep people out. That wasnt enough for some people who could bust through a simple lock so there had to be more substantial locks created. Dead bolts were added to really hold a door shut when the person inside wanted it to stay that way. At one point there were very limited selections if you wanted a door with locks and even more limited selections if you wanted the additional dead bolt lock that matched the door knob.
The first thing to do is to break open the new door knob and make sure all the necessary parts are there. You will find a list of them on the instruction page. Once you are sure the set is complete it is time to take the old one apart. Open the door and using the Phillips screwdriver remove the two screws holding the door closing mechanism in place. This is the metallic piece that sticks out of the door and is drawn inside the door when the knob is turned. Now take a look at the side of the door that does not have the lock the one that is on the inside side of the door.
Now put the screws on the opening and closing mechanisms again do not over tighten them test the door knob again there should be no interference or resistance. The operative mechanism is in place now it is time to finish the decorative part of the installation. Take the decorative plate that covers the mechanism and slip into place until it locks. Before putting in the decorative door knob lock the door and try the key without actually closing the door. The door should lock and unlock without major pressure or resistance.
