2. What are the various types of door knobs used for?

  • Entrance Door Knob - this door knob is generally used for exterior applications with a keyed locking cylinder. Our lock experts can key the entrance knobs and deadbolts alike.
  • Privacy Door Knobs - for use in bathrooms and bedrooms. Privacy knobs can be equipped with a lock. A slotted tool is used to unlock it from the outside.
  • Passage Door Knobs - Sometimes called hall and closet knobs because they are often used for hall and closets. These knobs are not lockable.
  • Dummy Door Knobs - These knobs are face mounted with screws. They do no have a latch mechanism. They are intended to be used on bifold doors or other applications that do not require a latch mechanism.

3. Can I get my deadbolts and locking door knobs keyed alike?
Yes, you can. Our lock can do this all in the same order, or even on different orders. Even though these are locks of love to us, we cannot key all locks alike if the brands are different. On the other hand, it is unlikely that you will want to mix and match them because the finishes will vary between brands.

4. Why do you have such low prices on your hardware?
The main focus of our parent company, Real Metropolitan Hardware, is serving the needs of New York City's finest architects, interior designers, builders, and contractors. When providing hardware for their projects we often buy more than is required to account for an occasional malfunction or cosmetic problem. Unlike the large discount houses like Lowes hardware, Ace hardware, Sears hardware or Home Depot, we must unload our overstock inventory as quickly as possible.

Also, our volume permits us to purchase directly form manufacturers rather than from distributors. That means better pricing for us which means better pricing for you, our customer. And it means great deals on quality hardware that you just can't find anywhere else.

5. When will you ship my hardware order?
If your order is placed before 11:00 a.m. eastern time, it is filled and shipped within 2 business days; however, this is not guaranteed. Our products are sent UPS ground unless other arrangements are made. Most customers receive their orders within a week. If you need it sooner email us with your zip code or call us at 718-677-4186.

Order Processing
All orders are usually processed same or next business day and then shipped based on item availability.

Special or Factory Order Items
Items that are 'Special Order' on our site is due to manufacturer back orders and are industry-wide. All or most retailers will have delayed shipping on these items.

Because we handle so many different types of items like cabinet hardware and knobs,kitchen hardware, restoration hardware, sliding door hardware, decorative house numbers, entry door locksets, exterior wall lighting, keyless door locksets, kitchen cabinet pulls and handles, it is impossible to go into detail here. So to check on returning an item, see our Lock and Hinge Policies section or just email us with your order number or call us at 718-677-4186.

7. Do your hinges match your door hardware finishes?
Finishes of our other products will be close but not identical as finishes from various manufactures will vary. If you are concerned about finishes matching as close as possible we suggest you order items made by the same manufacturer.

8. I want to see the items before I buy. Is there showroom near me?
The reason we can maintain great pricing and great service is that we don't have showrooms with the exception of our physical location in New York City. If you are a see-before-you-buy kind of person, just order one or two pieces of the items you are interested in. Once that meets your expectations, then we are confident you will feel comfortable placing the entire order with Lock and Hinge.
