The exact fitting or location of the doorknob varies according to the preference of the home owner. The location may vary in a few centimeters from the framework, the exact center of the door, and the outer top corner. The variations most of the time are observed to depend on the culture of the place, specific preference, and particular decorative style. The back-set or the distance from the edge to the center of the doorknob is defined with exact measurements and precision. Homeowners must keep in mind though that they can be difficult for children and elderly people to operate, and hence, the location of the doorknob should be decided on with a lot of consideration.
The most simple, antique doorknob design involves the working of an axle or spindle, that is passing through the latch. Ideally, these designs have one side totally flat and some predefined length exposed on either side of the door. Identifying antique doorknobs is easy with proper observation. Usually they are attached on both sides of the spindle and secured via a mechanism that holds the set screws perpendicular to the flat side of the spindle. They can be viewed to great detail online, offline, and it is advisable to be aware of the design prior to purchase. There is a possibility of the knob losing traction with extensive use, but this can be repaired by replacing the set screw.
