ZLW-OB72BT/5 Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish 5" Steel Shaft Mech. Doorbell Operator

This is a Victorian style design doorbell operator with the word "TURN" at the top.  It has been fitted with a 5" steel shaft, which can be cut down to fit thicker doors or thin walls.

The twist operator is mounted on the outside of a door, and when the handle is twisted, it will operate the mechanical doorbell on the inside of the door.  This operator will work with antique doorbell mechanisms, or with our matching reproduction doorbell (part number ZLW-183BL) which is sold seperately.  If you have a standard thickness door and are using the operator through the door, you may be able to use our 2 ¼" shaft doorbell operator.

Solid brass, with steel shaft.  Available in three finishes.  Please use the menu above to make a selection.

Measurements:

  • Diameter:  2 ½"
  • Projection:  1 ¼" from the door.
  • Steel Shaft Diameter:  316" square.

You can now mount the twist operator on the wall beside your door by ordering our longer shaft lengths:  6", 10", or 12".  Use the steel shaft operator long enough to go through your exterior siding, wall framing, and into the interior to ring the bell.  Ideal for sites with all-glass doors, or doors with wood stiles too narrow to hold the bell.  Steel shaft may be trimmed at your home to the exact length that works for you.

Diameter:  2 ½" (backplate)

Projection:  1 ¼" from the door.

Steel Shaft Diameter:  316" square.
