Interior Door Knobs - FAQ's
Are door knobs sprung?
In most cases they are sprung knobs where the spring is applied to one of the knobs. Check the details of each door knob when purchasing to be sure.
Do they come in pairs and are they handed?
All door knobs are sold in pairs for interior doors. When fitting to the door be sure to locate the sprung knob onto the door in the correct way. They are not handed as such but again check the direction of the spring in your hand before fixing to the door.
Will they fit the locks on my door?
These door knobs just operate from an 8mm spindle which is typical for most modern day doors. They work well with simple tubular type latches involving just a simple latch. When fitted to a mortice lock with a key they will be harder to turn and it would be best to firstly check the operation of the door knob by hand. If you have a rim lock then you will need a different type of door knob and these are available to order from our website as rim knobs.
How easy are the door knobs to fix?
They are very simple to fit. The process usually just involves screwing to the door from each side and using the grub screw to clamp the door knobs to the spindle. This is very important to ensure the fix is solid.
