FAQ's Door Knockers
How do I know a new door-knocker will fit?
Just measure the distance between the centres of the two holes on your existing door-knocker and make sure that you check the General Details page to ensure that the bolts line up. That’s it
How do I fit a new door-knocker?
Just unscrew the two bolts from the inside and push through to dislodge from the door.
How is the viewer fitted to the door-knocker?
Very simply, the viewer comes in two main parts that connect via a thread (viewer and a sleeve). Insert the viewer part through the door-knocker and the sleeve part from the inside of the door. The two can then be screwed together by hand until tight and then carefully use a screwdriver for the final half-turn. The door viewers have a certain amount of adjustment for different panel sizes.
What can I use to clean the door-knockers?
Care should be applied when cleaning door-knockers. Brass has a tendency to tarnish over time and particularly more so in outdoor environments. All door-knockers are lacquered and care must be applied to clean such items. We would generally advise using a soft dry cloth. If further cleaning is needed use a mild solution of warm, soapy water on a soft cloth and dry thoroughly afterwards.
To prolong the life of the door-knocker, care must be taken not to scratch or damage the surfaces of the knocker. Do not use wire wool or scouring agents.
