Tips to Purchase a Doorknob
There are several steps to be considered before you purchase a doorknob.

Step 1: Think about where you will be installing the doorknob. Interior doors may not always need keyed locks, for example.

Step 2: Decide what your particular preference either a standard type round knob shape, or a thumb latch and maybe the lever-type knob?

Step 3: Consider who will be using the doorknob. Children, handicapped people, and some may appreciate the benefits of a lever-type knob that is easier to open.

Step 4: Install passage type knobs on presses and other non-locking interior doors.

Step 5: Most bathrooms require a privacy type lock on the door and maybe also required on the bedroom doors. This is the type that locks from one side with a button or thumb turn.

Step 6: Always use keyed locking doorknobs for security on all exterior doors.
