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.

This will give you a frame of reference for what size you would like to use. A knocker is a wonderful way to add new beauty to any door. Replace other old and worn hardware with beautiful replacements pieces including the door knob deadbolt kick plate doorbell and mail slot. A complete entryway set can be created with a common theme or finish. Ask questions and search for high quality materials to ensure durability. The entryway of the home is the most prominent feature guests and homeowners will see and a worthwhile investment. Door knocker is not only a beautiful accessory on the front gate but also serves as a reflection of to the visitors.

The finish should match the rest of the hardware. Door knockers not only come in many finishes they are available in many types of metal. The most stable metal and probably the most common is brass. Brass is easy to machine and cast into shapes. It polishes into a bright gold like finish or satins easily and is easy to maintain. Brass also electroplates readily. This allows it to be nickel or copper plated to simulate pewter and bronze finishes. Because brass is non ferrous it will not rust. It will tarnish though for this reason a good lacquer finish is needed or your purchase will look terrible in a very short time.
