A riddle: What goes through the door but never goes in or out?

If you guessed “doorknob,” you’re right!

If your doorknob jiggles or is stuck and won’t turn, it’s time to replace it! It’s important to regularly check your doorknobs and make sure they’re secure from break-ins and are easy to open. With the right tools and the right hardware, switching out your doorknobs is a cinch!

All you need to replace old, worn-out doorknobs is a couple of screwdrivers, a hammer and a new knob. For detailed instructions, visit: Repair and Replace Door Hardware.

For an inexpensive way to spice up a room, try installing a stylish doorknob! Glass, flower patterns and even star shapes are readily available and inexpensive. How will you adorn your door?
