There are people who collect all sorts of thing. From dolls to bottle caps, there is a collection for nearly every personality. Some people even get all worked up over the old knobs on doors, and have started collections out of antique door knobs. We`re not sure how this collection happened. Maybe is started when an old door was going to be thrown out and there was a nostalgic moment, and the knob was kept as a memory. Then that knob called out for more knobs, and a collecting frenzy was underway.
It is not difficult to look for the sizes of the knobs. Take note that when knobs are installed in the drawers of the cabinets, it should be the same or bigger in size compared with the door knob.

If you think about it, the door knob began the whole movement towards security and safety in the home. Before the door knob, doors would just push open when someone wanted to get inside or go out. Then along came the door knob. It was a great way to keep a door from opening accidentally. A door knob also offered a side benefit of keeping the elements out of the house. Imagine how things would be in a storm without a door knob. Rain and wind would rush in every time.
Privacy knobs can be locked from the inside. These are used as interior door levers for rooms like bathrooms and bedrooms. For major entry areas like front doors and garage doors, keyed entry knobs are perfect because of its key mechanism specially created for exterior door hardware. You will see less locking mechanisms on passage knobs as these are not made for security. In the case of dummy knobs, only decorative purposes are considered. Lastly, commercial door devices are used for more organized residential purposes.
