Interior and Exterior Door Knobs
Door knobs can be purchased in a wide assortment of styles and finishes. You can fine-tune your search with the filters to the left. As soon as you select a style of doorknob that suits you, you'll have the option to select from a number of characteristics to match your needs. Not every doorknob style is offered in a keyed function. If you locate a model that suits you without a keyed function available, you may use a passage knob and a deadbolt above it.

There are 4 primary functions designed for certain residential applications. We also supply commercial door knobs, but we'll cover those options for in another article.Keyed Entry Knob
Typically used on exterior doors or really any door that requires the additional protection of a door lock. These locking door knobs have a keyed cylinder on the exterior and when locked, require the use of a key for entry. From the interior, the door can be locked using a turn button, or push button/pin (depending on the brand). Some keyed entry locks also have a panic release feature where, from the inside, the lock can be deactivated for exit. If a lock does not have this panic release feature, the button must be turned to the unlocked position to disengage the latch mechanism. If you have a number of keyed locks in your project, we can easily key all locks to use the same key.Privacy Door Knob
Privacy door knobs are typically used on bedrooms and bathrooms for privacy. These door knobs have a locking mechanism, but don't have a keyed cylinder on the outside like an exterior lock. Privacy locks are less secure than keyed entry locks simply because you can pick the lock open using the tool furnished with the lock, or a hairpin or paper clip. This ability to unlock is necessary so you can get access to a room in the event a child locks themselves in or similar circumstances. Like keyed entry locks, privacy knobs have a turn button or push button/pin (depending on the brand) on the inside of the door.Passage Door Knob
Passage locks do not lock. These are typically utilized on hall doors or closets that don't need to be locked, but still require the usefulness of a functioning door knob on the door. Sometimes passage knobs are utilized on exterior doors where a deadbolt is mounted above.Dummy Door Knob
Dummy door knobs are usually surface mounted on the door and don't have a latch mechanism of any type. Dummy door knobs are offered individually or in pairs (depending on the brand).
