It can be difficult to find a new door knocker with the same BC dimension. Especially if the original one has been there for many years. There is no standard for the BC dimension. The BC for the most part is determined by the design of the knocker. The mounting lugs used to attach the hardware are usually placed at a thicker portion of the casting. This is to give them more strength. Sometimes you have to settle for a replacement that is close. If the two BCs are within 1/4 or 3/8 inch of each other you can usually enlarge the holes in the door a bit to make the fit. If you are lucky the existing mounting hardware will cover the enlarged holes.

Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Interior doors are not as important when choosing quality but interior and exterior doors and hardware will last longer if selected with quality in mind.When selecting new hardware be sure to coordinate by color materials and style. This includes the lock hinges door knocker and coach lights if present. A door knocker is one of the most beautiful and prominent pieces on the front door of a house and reflects a lot of information to visitors about what to expect inside. The simple addition or replacement of an older knocker can completely transform the entire appearance of your entryway and add new elegance to the exterior of any home.

Pay close attention to what the door knocker is made of. Some manufacturers get away with making low quality zinc or pot metal castings look good for a short time using plating techniques. The problem with these is the good looks do not last. Soon the plating is chipping and pealing away and corrosion is taking over. What type of mounting is needed? Most door knockers employ either through the door mounting or surface mounting. Through the door mounting involves drilling holes through the door. The mounting hardware passes through these holes and attaches to the door knocker on the outside. On the inside decorative nuts are used to secure the door knocker to the door. Surface mounting uses screws to attach the door knocker to the door.
