ZLW-DK72BT/6 Mechanical Doorbell Operator in Antique Brass Finish 6" Steel Shaft

ZLW-PW72BT/6  Mechanical Doorbell Operator in Pewter Finish 6" Steel Shaft

ZLW-OB72BT/6 Mechanical Doorbell Operator in Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish 6" Steel Shaft

This is a Victorian style design doorbell operator with the word "TURN" at the top. The backplate is 2 1/2" in diameter. It comes in a choice of polished brass, or antique finishes. Use the drop down menu to select the finish. This steel shaft is 6" in length.

This 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 . If you have a standard thickness door and are using the operator through the door, you may be able to use our 2 1/4" shaft doorbell operator.

The matching mechanical doorbell is sold separately, since many customers already have an original doorbell for the other side. Our matching reproduction bell is ZLW-183BL .

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 all-glass doors, or doors with wood too narrow to hold the bell. Steel shaft may be trimmed at your home to the exact length that works for you.

2 1/2" Diameter Backplate. 6" Steel Shaft. Spindle for operator is 3/16" sq.
