Door Hardware – What Parts Do You Need to Know More About?

There are so many different types of doors out there and some of them have different hardware and parts than others. However, there are some basic door hardware parts that you should know more about. Before you learn more about these different parts, there are a couple of other things that you should know. Each part that you will be getting will usually have different sizes and styles. You should always measure before getting certain parts to be sure you have the right hardware. In addition, you might want to think about getting a door that already has the hardware attached. That will save you time and possibly more money in the long run too.

  • Strike and the Strikeplate
  • Lockset Options
  • Hinges

These are some of the door hardware options that you may need to know more about. Once you do, you can get the hardware that you need.

Strike and the Strikeplate

One of the door hardware options that you may need to know more about is the strike and the strike plate. These parts may be more complicated than they seem but they don’t need to be. The metal-type plate that is on your door jamb is your strike. It has one or multiple holes in it. Bolts will go into those holes and then into your door.

Your strikeplate is what latches onto your strike when it is being engaged. When installing this hardware, you need to make sure that everything lines up evenly, so the door opens and closes as it should. If you have further questions about what strike or strikeplate you should be getting, be sure to talk to a door hardware specialist before making any purchases.

The Lockset

You should probably know more about the lockset options that you have as well. This is one of the door hardware choices that you have more of a variety with. First, there are many types of locksets. There are also many styles in the locksets too. The classroom lockset has a bolt that retracts from a grip on both sides and is locked via a key on the outer or inner side.

A passage lockset has a bolt that retracts by a grip on both sides but the grips are free from one another. A privacy lockset has a bolt that retracts by grips on both sides and the lock can be turned by the thumb, key or a button. These are just some of the many locksets that you have available to you. For exterior doors, you may want to have a deadbolt too.

Hinges

Another one of the door hardware parts are the hinges. Almost all hinges are fairly basic. There isn’t much to them. These are designed to hold your door onto the frame on the wall. You want to make sure the door holds steady and the hinges are screwed in tight so they don’t come loose. You should know that not all doors will need the same hinges.

If you have sliding doors, these won’t need the hinges, since they generally run on a track. The amount of hinges that you might need will depend on the door you have and the size of your doorway as well. You will always need to make sure the placement of the hinges is even from one another, so the door hangs right. There are some doors which come with the hinges already attached, so you won’t need to do it.
