Q.   Do your door handles and door knobs come as a pair?

 A.   Yes. All working door handles and mortice knobs are supplied as a pair enough for one handle fitted each side of the door. There are some other knobs and handles supplied in singles, namely centre door knobs for front doors, pull handles and also cabinet knobs and handles. Each product page will confirm this.

Q.   What else do I need?

 A.   This will depend on whether you are going to re-use existing latch mechanisms etc that may be present in your door(s). Depending on what new handles/knobs you are planning on fitting, you may not need to buy new if your existing mechanisms are in decent  working condition. It is for this reason that door handles are not automatically supplied with latches and locks – there are so many different eventualities. If you are buying door knobs, most are supplied unsprung so we recommend a heavy duty mortice latch or lock, as the stronger springing will ensure the knobs do not get ‘stuck’ in the open position when in use. This can happen when a cheaper contract latch is used. For door handles on a backplate, you can buy any mortice latch as all handles on backplates always tend to be pre-sprung.  Bathroom doors will need a mortice bathroom lock. Check out our door handle buying guide for further info.

Q.   What size latches / locks should I choose?

 A.   The size of the latch is only critical if you are fitting new latches into existing doors and you need to make sure the main bore hole lines up with your new latches/locks on the face of the door (this is called the backset measurement). All measurements are shown on the product page along with line drawings to assist. On new doors, you can use 63mm or 76mm latches/locks, although the minimum should always be 75mm long if you are fitting door knobs, so as to reduce the risk of crunching knuckles as you turn the door knobs. If in doubt, please contact us for assistance.

Q.   How long is delivery?

 A.   In general, 2-5 working days. Please check each product as some are made to order and can take longer. If you need your order quickly, or expedited, please call us to request this service – we can normally arrange something quicker, however there would normally be an shipping charge on top for a quicker delivery. If there is an unforeseen delay with part or all of your order, we will contact you to inform you of the options – we can part ship your order if this is agreeable with you, however this may incur a shipping charge.
