Guide to buying door knobs

Guide to buying door knobs

The actions of door knobs differ slightly. This guide will help you make your decision as to what is the appropriate knob for your needs.

Mortice knob

A mortice lock needs a mortice knob with the lock positioned in the centre of the thickness of the door with equal width either side. See illustrations.

Rim knob

Rim knobs are used with rim locks. These locks have the mechanism enclosed within a metal casing and are attached to the face of the door. They will either have a keyhole and key or a snib type lock. These locks are not insurance approved on an outside door.

Centre knobs

These are suitable for roller ball latch that has a push and pull door action.

Turn and release

Used for bathrooms or bedrooms with a deadbolt lock, turning the thumb will lock the door

Rose fixings

The concealed fix is where the rose covers the screws or face fix where the rose has the holes in it making the screws  visible.

Additional advice

For small children and the elderly  lever type handles are recommended for doors that are used daily. These will not need the higher lever of grip that is applied to a knob.

Be careful of the positioning of the knob knuckles could be scraped if too near the door edge. If you have a problem positioning the knob then consider using lever handles or a centre knob.
