We just have to have patience in doing our job with concentration. Also you need to consider the type of knobs because knobs are not the same for all types of doors. Exterior doors have different properties than interior ones. Their installation or replacement is quite different as well. To remove exterior knobs we have to pull out some crucial parts like locks and screws. Exterior doors are exposed to the outside which makes them compatible to unwanted handling by strangers. To save our house from this we need to add a locking system on exterior knobs.
There are people who collect all sorts of thing. From dolls to bottle caps there is a collection for nearly every personality. Some people even get all worked up over the old knobs on doors and have started collections out of antique door knobs. Were not sure how this collection happened. Maybe is started when an old door was going to be thrown out and there was a nostalgic moment and the knob was kept as a memory. Then that knob called out for more knobs and a collecting frenzy was underway. No matter the reason for them antique door knob collections are very popular and can be very expensive.
The best way to choose which type your door needs would be to measure from the sharp edge of your door to the actual center of your door knob. If you buy a brand new door knob numerous door knob sets are variable that will fit either size door. To remove the current door knob use the appropriate kind of screwdriver and take the two main screws loose altogether. Pull on the knobs coming from each direction and so the knob will come apart on each side. To take out the latch take out the 2 anchoring screws on the door edge and the face plate now the latching mechanism should pull out.
Once done you will now see the inside of the wooden door and the part of the doorknob that goes through it. Push the opening and closing mechanism on the front of the door and at the same time pull the remaining piece of the door knob from the outside it will slide out easily leaving a hole that goes through the door. Once this is done take the opening and closing mechanism and slide it out the front of the door too. Now you have to reverse the process place the opening and closing mechanism through the front of the door make sure the flat side of the mechanism looks to the side to which the door opens.
