Types of Door Hardware and Locks

The vast array of door hardware choices can seem overwhelming, but if you keep in mind what the hardware will be used for, you can more quickly sort through the options. Some hardware is designed for exterior doors, while other products are meant for interior doors. Some types feature a locking mechanism, while others do not. Some hardware is designed to provide extra security, while other types of hardware are not functional at all—they're purely designed for aesthetic purposes. Here are the main types of door hardware available.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When comparing the various hardware options, you'll want to consider both style and function. As you look at the variety of designs and finishes available, think about the style of your home and your specific design tastes to find a good match. Also think about how much security you need as you compare the various options. You'll want to consider the design of the door where you'll be installing the hardware, and take some measurements before shopping. If you know a few basic things about your door, you can ensure the door hardware will not only look good but function properly as well.

Door Design

Before purchasing hardware, you'll need to make sure it will work on your door. If you'll be using the hardware on an existing door or a door with predrilled holes, you'll need to measure the diameter of the holes and make sure the hardware trim will cover the openings. Also measure the backset—the distance from the door edge to the center of the hole and the width of the door stile, which is the vertical panel at the edge of a frame-and-panel door, where the door hardware is installed. If the door has a thin stile, you may not be able to install certain hardware sets—of you'll end up with scraped knuckles when opening the door. Also be aware of the door's thickness. A standard interior door is 1-3/8 inches thick and an exterior door is 1-3/4 inches thick; if your door's thickness differs from these standards, you may need to purchase conversion parts to ensure the hardware will work with your door. If you're purchasing a lockset with a lever handle, you'll need to know the direction your door swings (called the door handing or hand-of-door) so you don't end up with levers that are upside down or on the wrong side of the door.

Style/Finish

Door hardware and locks are available in a variety of styles and finishes, so you can choose a model that complements your home's style as well as the finishes on other hardware and light fixtures. When choosing a finish, keep in mind that oil-rubbed bronze and antique bronze are living finishes that will change over time. Polished brass will tarnish if used outside, so choose a PVD finish for exterior doors. Also be aware that various brands use the same names for finishes, but they may not be an exact color match; be sure to compare colors if you'll be using multiple brands. If you want to upgrade the look of your home's entry (or interior spaces), consider installing a handle set rather than a standard knob or lever. Handle sets provide an upscale look and are available in a range of finishes and with many different trim options.

Security

As you're choosing the hardware for an exterior door, consider how much security you need or want. Mortise locks are usually the most secure, so they may provide greater peace of mind. If you have a glass entry door, some people like to install a double-cylinder deadbolt; with this setup, an intruder can't unlock the door from the inside even if they break the glass. However, you'll only want to use a double-cylinder lock if you have another easily accessible fire exit, because you would need to search for the key before being able to escape the house in an emergency.
