FAQ: Door Knockers

What can I use a door knocker for?

Door knockers are perfect for dressing up the front door and alerting homeowners that they have guests!

What is the terminology for the different measurement of door knockers?

Height: Distance from top to bottom

Projection: Distance that a door knockers sticks out from the surface of the door

Width: Distance from side to side

What does center-to center refer to?

Center-to-Center: The distance between mounting/screw holes. If you have the option, it is always recommended that you wait to drill your holes until you have actually received the pull. This is also referred to as “Hole Spacing.” Available center to centers include: 4.625”, 4.88”, 3.375”, 4”, 5.75”, 5.875”, 6.25”

What finishes and styles are available?

Door knockers are typically installed one of two ways. Some door knockers require two holes to be drilled through the door and the door knocker is then attached by hardware that it comes with, however others are simply screwed to the door.

After you have determined how your door knocker is installed measure where the door knocker will go directly in the middle at the width or the door and at a reasonable height for an adult to knock the door at. Most door knockers come with a template of where the screws or holes should go, but if your knocker did not, it is easy to mark on a piece of paper. After marking where the screws/holes will go and follow the installation instructions.
