The door knocker was packaged beautifully - layer, after layer of tissue, bubble, cloth bag, plastic bag.....to make me feel like I got my money's worth and that this was indeed a work of art. Which it is - it's well done and very unusual. But for me, $76 is a great deal to spend on a knocker so I have to really love it.....but, at 5.5 inches it was too small. Too small to be "a statement". I'd read another review that said it was too small to look like an alligator and ended up looking more like a lizard....here in Florida, lizards are everywhere, but not on my door. So, back to the store it went. For this knocker to make the statement it deserves to make - it is really nice quality and finely executed - I really need to buy the 7.5" version at $150 (not available with Home Depot, unfortunately). But, at that price, I get nervous! Will it fit, will I love it, how far apart are the screws?, will I be able to mount it to my existing door?, ooops - now I have the old screw holes thru the door visible inside the house....geez, I don't know, do I dare? I think rather than take a chance on getting stuck with a $150 piece of art that I can't use, I'll just skip it and sigh because my door still isn't making the statement that it deserves. I realize I have a tighter fist than most people when it comes to spending money - think Scrooge - and I am not knocking this knocker (pun intended) because it REALLY is cool. Michael Healy makes amazing designs. Many people wouldn't bat an eyelash at the price, and if you're one of them, get the 7.5" version and you'll love it.
