What are the types of Door Knobs?

Dummy door knobs are single-sided "fake knobs." They are typically mounted on a door's surface or in its interior. You can use some of them on double doors because they come in pairs. There are no functional components in these kinds of door knobs. They work well for the inside of French doors as well as a small pantry or shallow closet. 

Passage door knobs are similar to dummy door knobs. They are used to opening doors and moving between rooms but do not lock. For inner corridors, closets, and other areas without privacy locks, passage door handles are suitable. Additionally known as unkeyed knobs. 

Keyed entry door knobs for safety and security, feature a lock and key mechanism on both sides. They are utilized on exterior doors such as patio doors, entry garage doors, and front doors. Some doors have an internal lock button that you press to secure them. When you turn the interior knob, the button unlocks. To lock or unlock the door, you turn a twist mechanism on one side of other keyed entry door knobs.

Privacy door knobs possess a button or twist lock that only functions from one side. A generic key can be used to unlock some privacy door knobs with button locks since they feature a pinhole on the exterior of the knob. These sorts of door knobs are frequently used in bathrooms, bedrooms, and other spaces where privacy is required but keyed locks are not necessary.

Door levers are frequently found on French doors; however, they can be used anyplace that regular knobs are. These are ADA-compliant for users with disabilities as they come in various sizes and are simpler to use than standard door knobs. 

Handle sets To be installed on the outside of a door, handle sets have a handle and a key lock. They also have a deadbolt and a lever or door knob on the other side of the door. They are widely used on front doors and look good doing it. You operate a thumb latch on the handle set to open or close the door after you unlock it. 

What are the Door Knobs Finishes? 
  • Bronze: The color of antique bronze and oil-rubbed bronze door knobs can change over time. As you handle the knob, more of the color underneath the brown veneer will show.  
  • Nickel: Satin nickel, sometimes called brushed nickel, has a textured look. 
  • Black: This stylish, sophisticated choice is ideal for modern, minimalistic, and other decor.
  • Chrome: Polished chrome looks traditional, yet sleek enough for contemporary and modern interiors.

  • Pewter: Pewter door hardware comes in an antique or flat finish. 
  • Stainless steel: Durable stainless steel won't rust, so it's ideal for exterior uses.

  • Zinc: Door handles made of zinc alloy are durable and rust-proof. 
  • Custom door knobs: For one-of-a-kind accents, look for custom door knobs.

How To Install Door Knobs and Door Locks? 
  • Remove the existing door knob and lock by unscrewing the screws from the interior side of the door knob and pulling the knobs off from both sides.
  • Measure the hole in the door where the door knob and lock will go.
  • Measure the distance from the edge of the door to the center of the hole, which is called the setback.
  • Choose a replacement lock set that matches the size and style of your door and you're existing or desired key.
  • Install the new latch by inserting it into the hole in the edge of the door with the tapered side facing the direction you will push the door to close it.
  • Make sure the latch is aligned with the center of the hole in the face of the door and secure it with screws.
  • Install both knobs by sliding the spindle through the slot in the latch. Align the two long screws from the inside knob into the cylinders on the exterior knob and tighten them with a screwdriver.
  • Make sure both knobs turn smoothly and operate the latch properly.
  • Install the new strike plate on the door jamb by aligning it with the latch and securing it with screws.
  • Make sure there is enough clearance for the latch to enter and exit smoothly when you close and open the door.
