A Knob with Deadbolt Combo

For exterior doors, lots of times you need more than just an entrance door knob – I think it’s actually recommended that you get a deadbolt to go along with your entrance knob. At least that’s what we recommend. Why? A simple answer is to add more security. Deadbolts are a lot more secure than just a entrance door knob because of their bolt that goes deeply into the jamb. The deadbolt might easily be forgotten, and also it can be challenging to find a deadbolt that matches the door knob. This is probably a good time to tell you that there is a solution to this problem. On our site you can find Max Grade door knob with deadbolt combo packs to make is so much easier than you can imagine to order. All you are in charge of is selecting a finish and of course the quantity. It’s as simple as that. What’s also great about these combo sets is that they are keyed alike, so you don’t have to worry about the deadbolt key not matching the door knob key.

The first combo pack is the Max Grade Watson Knob with Deadbolt Combo. You can see in the picture below that the Watson door knob is a simple round shaped door knob and is available in Polished Brass, Satin Nickel, Aged Bronze and Oil Rubbed Bronze finishes. The deadbolt is a Single Cylinder Deadbolt.

Next is the other combo set – The Max Grade Baker knob with Deadbolt Combo. The door knob style (Baker door knob) is an egg shaped style of door knob which is a little more unique compared to the Watson (see above). This set is also available in Polished Brass, Satin Nickel, Aged Bronze and Oil Rubbed Bronze finishes. The deadbolt is a Single Cylinder Deadbolt.

The backset is adjustable, the door thickness fits standard door preparation, and the handing is interchangeable, meaning you can switch it from left hand to right hand and vice versa. All you will need to know is if you want a handleset you can choose between a single cylinder handleset (keyed cylinder on outside, thumbturn on inside) or a dummy handleset (non functioning handleset or stationary handleset). If you are interested in a knob or lever, choose from passage, privacy, keyed entrance or dummy functions. If you need help determining what function you need look under order help next to the description tab on the item page. If you are interested in a deabolt, that’s super easy, most people order the single cylinder deadbolt which is a keyed cylinder on the outside and thumbturn on the inside. Some people do like the option of a double cylinder deadbolt which is a keyed cylinder on the outside as well as on the inside, so you would need a key to lock the door from either side. Double cylinders are used on door that have partial glass on or around the door, so in case an intruder were to break the glass, they would need a key to unlock the door from the inside. After you have chosen your item(s) and function(s), all you have left is to choose a finish. Simple as that.
