If you have been planning to get that old exterior door handle replacement for a long time, then this is the right time to get it done all by yourself. You might always have been waiting for a carpenter or a helper to get the job done, but this is quite an easy task to do that will only consume a few minutes of your time. With the right tools and the handle replacement ready, the whole project will be fat and swift experience for you. The following steps will guide you to replace handles from traditional doors made from wood or metal. However, you can also use the methods mentioned here to replace the handles of other types of doors like screen doors and storm doors.
The handle, as it exists today, is a relatively new invention dating to the mid-19th century, with the first American patent dated in the 1850s. Handles and knobs experienced a massive period of growth and development throughout the Victorian Era (1830-1900). Thousands of variations on the theme of the door handle, in combination with modern production methods, made door handles accessible to virtually everyone. Latches faded in popularity and use, relegated to service in barns and similar outbuildings where their simplicity and design function trumps external appearance. These handles today serve multiple functions. Among these functions, may include lock and key mechanisms, electronic locks, push button access that is either mechanical or electronic, high-security features and many other applications other than a simple push-pull device to open or close a door.
Depictions of door handles in paintings dating to the first century CE are centrally placed hinged rings. The modern door knocker is a vestige of this style of primitive door handle. Doors were typically secured by bars and brackets to prevent them from being opened by either intent or accident. Over time, large crossbars used to secure a door were supplanted by sliding bars, operated by a handle secured to the bar and projecting through a slot in the door, or as a pivoting bar - often called a latch - that could be dropped into a matching slot on the door jamb. In Colonial America, the operating mechanism for a small pivoting bar was a latch string threaded through a hole in the door near the handle. There are - probably apocryphal - accounts and references implying that this mechanism was a workaround for heavy taxes and a crown edict mandating the colonists could only use door latches or locks imported from England. About the middle of the 18th century, handles and locks were integrated into a single unit, the earliest known examples being levers that both operated the latch and served as a pull to open the door.
