02 Sep Hardware for Dog Lovers
Inspired by a classic Victorian doggy door knob from the Russell & Erwin Manufacturing Company of New Britain, Connecticut, this new Dog Knob from Emtek is a brass reproduction of the original bronze version from the 1860s. Available in 3 finishes, this whimsical design can be ordered as a Dog Knob pair (with a dog on either side of the door), or as a split style and finish combination. It can also be ordered with any brass rosette (see the website). Sold as a complete set, it includes the latch and strike plate (a 28-degree latch is available for an additional charge). The Dog Knob fits any door between 1-3/8” to 2-1/4″ thick with a 2-1/8″ bore. The standard latch is for a 2-3/8″ back-set and you’ll need to specify a 2-3/4″ back-set if required. For pricing information, contact any EMTEK® dealer, and keep in mind that supplies are limited. With each purchase of a Dog Knob, Emtek pledges to make a donation to one of the animal welfare organizations in Los Angeles who are committed to helping shelter animals find homes. Emtek Products, Inc., is an ASSA ABLOY Group company.
