  • FAQ - Check in for all your door knob queries

    Are door knobs sold in pairs?

    Yes they are sold as pairs and many door knobs only work as pairs. The exceptions to this are centre pull knobs and cupboard knobs which are sold as single items. For prices, visit our website www.pushkaknobs.com

    What size door knobs do I need?

    If you have standard size doors (1980 x 760mm), or close to standard size doors, then you would require the 50mm diameter knobs. We sell larger door knobs up to 75mm in diameter for external doors and large internal doors. Pairs of door knobs do not generally go above 75mm in diameter as they need to be set back far enough from the edge of the door so your fingers do not get jammed between the door knob and the door frame. Of course size is down to your choice and aesthetics. If you are uncertain of the size, we suggest you make a paper cut out and stick this to the door, but remember to consider the projection as well.

    Can I have one style or finish on one side of the door and a different one on the other? e.g. Bathroom one side (chrome) and landing the other (brass).

    Good question! This can only be done if the spindle bar and method of fixing is the same. Generally if it is the same item in a different finish this can be done. If you want to mix styles please let us know and we can advise you to help you get your desired look.

    What do I need to make door knobs turn?

    Door knobs are all supplied with spindles and the spindle needs to go through a latch. The latch is generally set into the edge of the door, so you only see the facing and retaining plates. Door knobs rely on the spring in the latch to make them spring back into position. We sell a heavy duty latch to ensure your door knobs function at their best.

    What are Mortise Knobs?

    These are door knobs which fit a mortise lock or latch i.e. fittings set into the edge of the door. Mortise knobs generally have the backplates fixed to the the door knobs and the spindle bar is plain and 8mm square.

    What is a Centre Door Knob?

    A centre door knob or door pull is a single door knob. These do not turn. They are bolted from the back of the door and are generally used in the centre of external doors. These are often the grand centrepiece of a panelled front door. As they are not turning or fitting near to the edge of the door, they can be made larger than pairs of door knobs. Our largest ones are 100mm diameter.

    What is a Cupboard Knob?

    A cupboard knob is designed as a single knob. They are generally smaller in diameter than door knobs or centre knobs and are bolted from the back. We have sizes from 20mm diameter up to 50mm diameter in several different finishes and lots of styles. These act as pulls only and do not turn. They are used on cupboard doors, drawers and furniture.
