This is also true of gargoyles which have similar caricatured faces in order to prevent spirits and ghosts from entering the house.

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.

These home pieces were especially the rave during medieval periods until the 18th and early 19th centuries. Sadly these iconic home pieces have now been replaced by the electric doorbell; however they are still valued pieces especially when it comes to designing homes the traditional and old-school way. Traditional door knockers come in varied shapes and sizes and are sold in different price ranges as well. Its a historical fact that a homes doorways and entrances aid in defining the architectural flavor and style of the whole structure and any special treatment or addition to these areas of the home will surely help in setting a house apart from the rest of the neighbors.

If not a larger washer will usually do the trick. If the replacement door knocker BC dimension is not even close one of the existing holes can be used but the second matching hole must be drilled through the door for the mounting. This leaves the other previous hole to cover up. If puttying and repainting is not an option I have used a third mounting hardware bolt and epoxy it into the unused hole. This gives the appearance on the inside that three bolts are used on this door knocker. This looks natural and is easy to do. The outside portion of the hole is covered by the door knocker but should still be filled with putty to prevent future problems with moisture. With a little luck you will find a matching door knocker.
