Mythological Door Knockers People with large doors should install large knockers as a small piece on a large door will look out of place. Mythological figures like Roman gods and goddesses are also added beauty on a large door as they are made larger than the normal door knockers.

In many instances the hardest part of replacing a door knocker is finding a suitable replacement. Matching the finish or style is not so difficult as is matching the mounting methods. There are two common methods of installing a door knocker. Surface mounting and through the door mounting. Both methods use common household tools. Other than that they are distinctly different. First is the surface mount method. This option uses wood screws that pass through the door knocker and into the door. This is the easiest method for replacement. The screws do not have to line up perfectly with the existing holes in the door.
