If lacquered or plated the engraving process can cut through and expose the base metal below. An engraved door knocker should be engraved before the plating or lacquering process. A door knocker makes a wonderful gift or is a great addition to your own home. Careful shopping and little research will go a long way in getting the best value. Are you about to replace an older doorknocker with a new one? Perhaps you are looking for a different style or finish. In any case shopping for a door knocker can be a frustrating task. There is not only the choice of style and finish you must match or cover the impressions and holes left from the previous one.

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.

There really is no limit in this genre because the knocker is meant to reflect the homeowners unique personality. Installation FAQ If you are installing a new door knocker the best choice is a rear mounted knocker made from solid materials such as brass or iron. These will be more resistant to damage over time and offer a wider option of intricate designs. Rear mounting does require the door to be drilled for installation but this prevents theft of the knocker and ensures it will not fall off or break away from the door. If you are replacing an existing knocker it is important to measure the pre-existing holes and choose a new knocker carefully.
