Not being a DIY bod, need to change a door barrel/fitting on a living room door.

Now, are they generic, do I need to find out a size/gauge etc.

Thanks in ignorance

  • When is a door not a door ?
  • The only difference should be the spindle that comes in different sizes so If you take the existing one off and with you, you should be able to get an exact match mate.

    I assume B&Q/Homebase can match them etc?
  • i bought some new door handles recently if thats what you are doing, but for some bizarre reason the old barrels (if that's what they are called) are all now too long as are the new ones, so I will have to cut them all down a bit.

    Bloody confusing, you can tell I work in an office and always have done.
  • even better, I always believed hand saws were made with a square on the handle so you could use it as a set square for 90 degrees and and 45 degrees - most usefully (something your Dad tells you when you're young).

    Anyway the one I have at the moment which I thought was square, isn't.... despite being from a major tool manufacturer. It was like finding out the tooth fairy is made up, plus it accounted for a lot of my cuts being wonky..

    (tres dull I know)
