Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrfixit These are a great way to update those old doors
They are very close to an exact swap but be prepared to do a little tweaking on the door casing side as the mortise varies a bit and you will find that you'll need to reverse the angle of the closing latch for left or right applications, its easily done by removing 1 screw on the case and simply flipping it over. mine were all shipped set up for right hand doors. when complete they work with a deadbolt type skeleton key just as they did 50 years ago. Don't give up on those great old Doors just update the Hardware

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tinam375 Great replacement door knob!
I have a house that was built in 1925 and the doorknobs were looking bad. I went to Home Depot to see if they sold a replacement knob and they did! I was very excited! The only adjustment needed to make it fit perfectly was notching out a little bit of the door where the latch plate goes. The latch plate was slightly longer than the original. I didn't really have to notch it because my door still closed just fine. I just wanted it to be flat with the door. I did sand the door a little where the front plate went since I didn't want to see a line, where my old plate used to be, because it was shaped a little different. I was painting the door anyway. It looks great! I do wish that it was a little cheaper but it was worth it since mine were falling apart.

I bought these to replace the original mortise mechanism on my 1940 house. Installation was simple and quick. All my doors work well now and lock for privacy and security. They look great and fit the look of my home.
