The letter classifications below group doorknobs by the pattern of the knob. Groups C and N are based upon the actual shape of the knob, while the others generally are the design pattern on the face of the knob. Materials such as wood, composites, glass and porcelain/minerals are also grouped together. Click on the Picture below to visit that page or use the list of letters which correspond with each classification in the Menu.
