Our simple door hardware guide

We offer knobs for just about any interior door you have. Here is what you need to know:

Backset

The latch you order must fit your backset  for your door. What is a backset?


The backset is the distance from the edge of the door to the center of your 2-1/8-inch bore hole. In the United States, the most common backset for residential doors is 2-3/8 inches. For older doors and customers outside of the US, you should measure, as 2 3/4 inch backset are also common. 


Our French Door sets have no latch so you do not need to measure the backset for those options. 

Passage

Passage door knobs are used where no lock is needed.

Privacy

We explain backset, passage locks, privacy, options for different French door knobs and more in this easy to understand door hardware guide.
