Door Hardware Descriptions and Checklist
Once you become familiar with the different types of hardware available, you will be more confident when ordering. Below is a basic description of the different door hardware most often used in homes. We also have included a printable checklist at the bottom of this page. You can print this list along with the checklist and carry it with you through each room of your home as you decide on the hardware you need.
Doorknobs or Levers - There are four different types: keyed entry, privacy, passage and dummy knobs or levers.
Deadbolts - Most exterior doors are also pre-drilled for deadbolts. These can be keyed alike to match the key of your other doorknobs.
Hinges - We have these available in a variety of finishes and styles for interior and exterior doors.
Handlesets - These are fancier handle set for a front door. They come with a deadbolt to match - Single or double cylinder. Dummy handlesets are also available for double doors when one door is not used most of the time.
Door Stops - These mount on the baseboard and keep your door knobs from punching holes into the drywall.
Cabinet knobs - Dress up your cabinets with cabinet knobs in a variety of finishes. Knobs also help protect your cabinet finish and keep the drawers gliding on the track correctly.
Pocket Door Hardware - Pocket doors are a great space saving way to have a door in a tight space. We have pocket door hardware in a variety of finishes to complement our door hardware products or those you may already have.
Door Kickplates - Protect your front door from dents and scuffs with a kickplate in finishes to match your existing hardware. Kickplates are available in a variety of widths to accommodate many door sizes.
Address Plaques - You'll need your address posted to get your certificate of occupancy. Be sure to
order one before you run out of time. Their customized nature required a couple of weeks for shipment.
House Numbers and Letters - Choose from a variety of solid brass letters and numbers in several finishes and sizes. House Numbers are a more common alternative of address markers.
