General advice

After pulling up to your house and taking an overview of the front, the very first item that your visitors will notice is the door furniture (the handle, letterplate, cylinder or the door knocker). If any of these are shabby in appearance, this will be a wasted opportunity to create a good first impression. The door furniture you choose can say something about you or your property. Choose a door knocker that matches your other door fittings, colour, style and or feel of your door, property or personality. If replacing one have a look at the style, and choose one that will match the style of the rest of your door furniture.

If you have panels in your door it might be better to choose a Georgian Scroll, Victorian Scroll, Ponytail, Slim Victorian Urn or Doctors Knocker, as these are designed to fit in between the vertical panels. If you are looking for an unusual gift the Victorian Urn style lends itself well to being engraved with a personal message. If you look at the measurements of the hole in your existing door and they do not exactly match those of the Urn's then a scroll or door knocker with a separate striking plate might be a better idea, because it has a 20 millimetres tolerance.

Gap between bolt holes 115mm
Maximum Width 42mm
Maximum Height 160mm
Thread (door thickness) 85mm (<70mm)

Be sure that it fits

Before ordering - please check your door thickness, and the gap between existing holes.

The maximum width and height details are given to ensure it will fit between panels or raised mouldings.

These knockers use a unique easy cut nylon thread, instead of a bolt, to go through the door, which means it's easier to cut and will not rust.

Fitting instructions

You will need:

  1. The door knocker & fixings.
  2. A battery or powered drill
  3. A 6mm drill bit that is suitable for the door material that you are drilling into
  4. A junior hacksaw / sharp knife
  5. A tape measure
  6. A pencil
  7. Safety goggles

Fitting instructions:

  1. First decide where you would like the door knocker to go. Using a tape measure and pencil, find the centre of the door and make a mark.
  2. Measure the door knocker. Find the distance between the bolt holes (measuring from centre-to-centre of the bolt hole) on the back of the knocker.
  3. Use the pencil to mark in-line with the centre mark - the measurements for drilling the bolt holes.
    Remember measure twice, cut once
  4. Before you start drilling it is advisable to wear safety goggles. Use a 6mm drill bit that is suitable for the door material that you are drilling into.
  5. Find the bolt hole marks and drill as straight as possible keeping at 90° to the door.
  6. Repeat for the second bolt hole.
  7. Attach the easy cut nylon threads and offer the door knocker up to the holes and push through.
  8. If the bolt protrudes a lot from the back of the door you'll need to trim them. Mark the excess, check the size needed with the nut. Check the depth. Remember measure twice, cut once.
  9. Saw the excess off with a junior hacksaw or cut off with a sharp knife.
  10. Attach the nuts - Once you have done this screw the nuts onto the back of the bolts
  11. Give it a test! and admire your handy work.
