Perfect for antique door knob projects!

Works great!

My daughter wanted several sliding doors in her 1930 vintage home, but wanted to keep the charm of the glass door knobs. This was the perfect solution.

Excellent product. Allowed me install glass spindle knobs at very reasonable price.

Works, but poorly designed

Works but poorly engineered.It looks like a 5 year old engineered the product. Which consists of the circular plate with screw holes and a post that fits in; however, that post has a head to it which hold it to plate which is NOT flush with plate so it will wooble against the door when it is installed. So you must carefully screw in evenly so it sits straight.I counter sunk a screw hole behind the post so it would sit flush behind the plate on the door and works great. If you don’t do that or perfectly set your screws post will not sit straight.

A product that won't screw you!

This product is exactly what I needed. My significant other had purchased a new doorknob for the sliding door to the closet. She got a very nice regular door knob not realizing that we needed dummy knobs.These screwed right into the back of the new handle where the spindle would have gone, holding the trim plate in place. I did not screw this to the door (I just reused the existing holes in the door from the old knobs backing plate). As a result my knobs spin freely (which I like).Super easy to install. Could not be more pleased. My initial thought was that these were a bit pricey but now having used them they were worth every penny.

High quality, actual product differs from listing photo

Excellent quality. Pictures are out of date as the base plate and stem have swapped colors: the 1-3/16 inch diameter base is zinc colored and the 1 inch long shaft is black. Mine came in small zip lock bags, no instructions, 3 slot-head brass screws, and the base and stem were 2 separate pieces. Also, the base has a clipped corner, not sure why. The brass screws are nice, but usually they'll be covered by the doorknob rose. Brass is also soft, easily stripped, easily broken, and this hardware should come with steel screws.Country of manufacture unknown.

Dummy spindle

I had no idea these spindles existed, I was Finally able to use my antique knobs! The instructions are easy to follow I didn’t need power tools to install the spindle to the door.

Exactly what I needed

These dummy spindles are well made and work perfectly for attaching older style door knobs.

Perfect for door knob installation

I needed to install a pair of Swarovski crystal doorknobs as cabinet pulls. These are perfect! Well made, strong and easy to use. Perfect!


I have a vintage brownstone entry door with mortise lock set. Using this dummy doorknob spindle provided a quick and viable temporary solution until the custom ordered hardware can be determined and supplied.


Very solid item. Made using my 100+ year-old glass knobs not only possible but easy.
