For instance, in addition to the knob top, which is the large knob that you would actually grab hold of to turn, handles are made with a spindle, shank, and knob rose. The knob rose is a round washer or plate used to form a socket. This piece is adapted so it can be attached to the actual door. Then, there is that spindle, which is the thin piece to which the handle attaches. The shank is the stem that projects from the door handle. Within the shank is a hole in which the spindle would be placed. For functionality, the door handle would be attached so the metal shaft can turn the latch to open the door.

In case you find any trouble with the lock or the handle replacement, then you should remove the assembly and recheck the screws.

As door handles easily catch germs and bacteria because of the variety of individual hands that touch them in the course of a day, it is important to consider the materials used. It is believed that certain materials like brass, copper and silver discourage the growth of bacteria and germs through some kind of electro-chemical effect; while other materials like aluminum, stainless steel, glass and porcelain do not have the same action. However, this belief has remained just that... a belief: and studies have not been extensive enough to confirm or disprove this possible effect, except in the case of silver. Hospitals in particular are experimenting with handle materials as they continue their fight against infectious disease within their wards.
