Door Knobs—Know Your Opponent
Like all opponents, the humble door knob has it’s strengths and it’s weaknesses, and we know every one of them. It is a relatively simple mechanism that does it’s job most impressively. You may take for granted the fact that just having a working knob on your door makes it infinitely easier to open than prising a larger than life, flat piece of wood or similar material, pushed closed, open with your fingertips. Also due to it’s once closed stays closed power, it is extremely good at making your house more energy efficient, as less warm air will escape through a closed door as opposed to an open door. So don’t think that you can put off closing the door just because it jams, it may be costing you more than you think! Door Knobs are not scary for us. We know that people can have problems due to many different reasons, which is why our experts are trained in the art of deduction. Some of the commoner problems we have dealt with include the handle sticking in the open position; not returning back to the original closed position. This is caused by one of five problems:
- Screws have been overtightened by non-professionals with electric screwdrivers.
- Internal springs have not got sufficient lubrication.
- The inside “neck” is binding to the door preventing the handle backplate from laying flat.
- The door has dropped, binding the latch bolt against the keep plate.
The spring in the mechanism was cheap and has failed, we are sorry, come to us for a better quality latch.
Interior Door Knobs
The most common varieties of Interior Door Knobs come in all shapes and sizes but usually have very similar mechanisms on the inside. Usually when you turn the knob, it pulls a cylinder, which is connected to a spindle or bolt, pulling it in the same direction. Turn the knob, the latch bolt is retracted into the door, let the knob go and the reverse happens. The spring returns the latch to it’s original state, protruding proudly out of the door, or hidden inside the door frame. The square or rectangular backplate can host a variety of different jobs. If you want a keyhole cover, where are you going to put it? On the backplate. Locks can be placed through and inside the backplate, with the keyhole for functional use. If it is a bathroom lock, you can have your backplate adorned with a turn and release knob, the kind that is most compatible with a bathroom lock. Or you can have a simple latch lock which allows the backplate to be plain. You see, there is more than meets the eye with our Interior Door Knobs. But let us worry about the mechanisms while you browse the aesthetic features; do you prefer a brass, brown mineral, wood, Victorian bronze, cut glass or white porcelain door knob to replace your arch-rival?
