Are all door knobs the same?
Posted by nicholas.t.abbott on March 6th, 2020
That's my question, not yours! A lady who came by our house one day began stripping all the switches off our door knobs. I've never seen anything like it, and if it's common, then all other doors should be pulled down to the same level of disrepair. Keep this issue in mind. It could be a traditional mechanical problem, a common door replacement, or more reason to shop at Manfrotto and Pescador. Thank you for any feedback you might have.
Yes and no. Different applications and tools tend to use different types of Knobs. For example, SAABs can only use the analog unit type and roller remote type lights can only use the LED type. But there are different reasons why they will use them.
How come some are backwards and some are forwards? Should they be made of different materials, should they look different, should they move differently? Should they sound different? Should they have different functions? Should they even exist? The answer is all of the above. If you get too far ahead of yourself, you might get frustrated and give up. But, there are good reasons for some door knobs to be very different from each other, for the best protection, but also for the ease of use and quality of the knob. Here are some of the differences between the various door knobs, and some of the reasons behind them.
It depends on the size. Door knobs larger than 1.25" (6 mm) should have 12.3mm or 15mm stem and larger (estimated). Larger (estimated) car door knobs also have more knobs to allow for more knobs in a row (this allows them to sit more flush against the top of the door). Smaller (estimated) car door knobs need to have a smaller stem and need less knobs to access the handle.
