Exterior Door Hardware


Entry door hardware  is sorted into familiar types: single door and double door. All exterior doorplates have a large hole for your modern  cylinder lock  , although in Victorian times a skeleton key was used. You can still use a skeleton key mortise latch, and put your security cylinder lock separately above the doorplate. All of our door hardware is compatible with Baldwin brand hardware, as we're an authorized Baldwin distributor.


1. If you'd like a thumblatch on the outside of your front door, look for our "SP" suffix entrance plates with an attached thumbplate, and our L-9SP/DL  (double latch) mortise lock. The matching interior doorplate will end in "TL", and allow you to lock the deadbolt with a turnlatch.

2. If you prefer an entry with doorknobs on both sides, look for our "SP" entrance plates with doorknob receiver holes, and use our  L-9SP  mortise lock. We have a huge variety of  doorknob styles  to match the entrance backplates .

3. If you like a thumblatch exterior and doorknob interior, we're ready with "SP" entrance plates with attached thumblatch, and mortise lock  L-9SP/SL  . For the interior, select a "TL" doorplate with attached latch turner and doorknob receiver hole.


How versatile! Almost every suite of doorplate styles comes with a matching knob or handle-only doorplate. This allows the double door to match, but not require all the mechanism of the first door. The doorknob or " dummy " may be a thumblatch, knob, lever, or handle. For added security, we recommend a  surface bolt  on the second door.

If you're ever in doubt, we're available for questions at (360)-379-9030!
