Ring Style Solid Brass Door Knocker
Great Product, Poor Instructions
This door knocker is a nice solid piece of brass with a finish that resembles our Schlage Antique Brass well. But it did not come with install instructions. And both Handlesets.com and Baldwin didn't have hole sizes or drill template available. I was disappointed that Handlesets did not follow-up as promised with this information. I had to get it myself with 30 minutes on the phone to Baldwin... Please make a hole template for the 4 holes needed...

Better than Orginal
I am refurbishing the front of my house & wanted to simply replace the existing Baldwin knocker with same only in Lifetime Brass finish (using existing holes). HandleSets had exactly what I needed with the best 'net' pricing I could find and super speedy delivery to boot! Highly recommended!!

I purchased this door knocker in the polished Chrome option and installed it on a black panel front door. Simply Stunning! There were no installation instructions included (as other reviews reported), nevertheless it was pretty straight forward. Ordered 2 polished Chrome screw covers (not included with knocker) to use on the interior side. LOVE this door knocker! Solid, heavy, durable. Simple, clean style goes perfectly with my 2 panel, 6 window, mission style front door. Wood definitely recommend!

Gleaming & Elegant
This is a beautiful, solid, heavy piece. It looks gorgeous from the street (which I admit is the real reason I got it) and makes my traditional entry door look stately but updated.
I will echo the complaint about the lack of direction in installing the knocker. Since you are having to drill holes through the door, there should be a template or guide - no one wants to mess that up!
I figured out that the holes are meant to be drilled 4" apart to make the parts line up properly.

Solid and heavy
Very pleased with our new door knocker. Very heavy, solid, and good quality. The finish looks high end. We were worried it would be too heavy for our hollow-core front door. But we went ahead and installed it anyway, since the screws go all the way through the door, and it seems just fine. Ours did not arrive with installation instructions, but they were easy to find online and print out.

I wanted one that was simple, yet space to engrave our family name. Was perfect. I was also able to engrave our initials on the round piece.
The round knocker is a bit looser than I'd like but looks beautiful.

Looks good, but...
Handsome looking knocker, but is very sloppy in its housing and "knocks" whenever the door is shut. I will have to gunk up its pivot points to make it only knock when I want it to.

Everyone who comes to the front door remarks on how nice this knocker is. The door is walnut stained very dark brown, almost black. The knocker gleams beautifully against it.
