What is Dummy Door Knob?


When talking about knobs, we can’t prevent ourselves from thinking of locking. Most types of knobs are designed to lock the door for our safety. For example, Signstek’s keypad deadbolt, keypad door lever and keypad door knob can greatly enhance our home security thanks to a strong locking mechanism. However, the dummy door knob is an exception. Even so, without the locking function, dummy door knob plays a significant role in our home and is almost used in every room of our home. Why is there such a need for a fake handle? Let’s get to know more about dummy door knob.

Types of dummy door knob

Dummy door knob is also known as “fake knob”. There are no locks, axles or latches, so the dummy door knob can’t be turned or rotated and is used to open and close a latch-free door. There are two different types of dummy door knob.

(1) Full dummy door knob

Full dummy door knob is installed in pairs on the surface of a door and behind it, providing a full set of doorknobs.
