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.

The use of Greek or Roman gods and goddesses is an impressive way to add a dramatic knocker to compliment the size of the door. Smaller knockers tend to appear inappropriate and awkward on larger doors - bold patterns offer a wonderful way to balance the size of the door with the size of the knocker. Nature or Hobbies A modern interpretation of door knockers offers a wide variety of designs never before seen. This can personalize a door and make it stand out even more.
