FAQ About Antique Door Plates
Will these antique door plates work on my new doors?
Only if you have ordered your new door as a "slab", with no holes bored, because new doors have a hole (called a boring) that is 2-1/8" diameter. So any door plates less than 2-1/8" wide will not cover that hole. If your door is a slab, or if your door plate is wide than 2-1/8", you will need additional hardware to make them work, including door knobs, a tubular latch or mortise lock that fits with these knobs. For full details of how to make this work, you should check out our Antique Door Hardware Primer.
Can these antique doorknob plates work with any door knobs?
No. The receiver or collar of each antique door plate is sized specifically to fit with knobs made by that manufacturer. There was no standardization. So you should measure both the receiver opening and the neck of the doorknob to make sure they will fit with eachother. For full details of how to make this work, you should check out our Antique Door Hardware Primer.
What other hardware do I need with these door knobs?
You will need a latch or lock to keep the door latched in the jamb, and to hold the door knob pair in place. There are several options. For full details of how to make this work, you should check out our Antique Door Hardware Primer.
