Tip Tuesdays – Q&A
How do I measure my door hardware?
When it comes to door hardware, you need to know the following:
- Thickness of the door.
- Backset (the distance from the edge of your door to the center of the hole).
- If there is existing hardware, either bring in a picture or measure the space between the existing holes in your door (deadbolt to knob/lever).
- If you chose a lever for your door, know which side the hinges are located on from the outside.
