High-Quality Schlage Door Hardware
Schlage door hardware has been gracing homes and businesses for over 100 years. Although the product lines may have changed since the company opened its first shop in 1920, a lot has remained the same: stylish design, quality engineering, and impeccable craftsmanship.
At Access Residential Hardware, we are proud to offer our customers a diverse selection of Schlage door knobs and levers. Let the legacy of innovation and security that has distinguished Schlage from the beginning provide modern elegance and protection to your home.
Schlage Door Knobs and Levers
Schlage door knobs and levers are designed to compliment your personal style as well as protect your home. From purely decorative knobs and pulls to sophisticated keyless solutions, you’ll find what you need for your interior and exterior doors.
Schlage Door Pulls
Door pulls are larger than knobs, so they’re easier to grasp and make a stronger visual statement. They come in different sizes and have a linear shape that shows off larger drawers and cabinets to the best advantage. They’re also appropriate for French doors, pantry doors, and closets.
Schlage Passage Knobs and Levers
These door knobs and levers are designed for closets, bedrooms, and other spaces that don’t require locking. Our line of Schlage passage door hardware includes the Bowery knob, which draws inspiration from its Mid-Century Modern roots, and the Birmingham lever, whose delicate flourishes and ornamental touches recall the Victorian era.
Schlage Privacy Knobs and Levers
Privacy door knobs and door levelers protect bedrooms, bathrooms, home offices, and other spaces where privacy is important. Choose from options like the Schlage bell knob, whose streamlined simplicity suits most environments, or the more playful Flair lever, which has a stately curved shape.
Schlage Keyed Entry Doors and Levers
Exterior door knobs and levers have higher security needs, but Schlage has you covered. If you’re looking for a strong keyed solution for your front door, your choices include the classic Schlage Andover knob, which compliments Federal style homes, or the Elan lever, a sturdy model that takes its inspiration from the Bauhaus era.
Schlage Keyless Door Knobs and Levers
Modernize your front door lock and keep your home secure without fumbling for a key or worrying about a missing one. Schlage keyless door knobs and levers are a convenient way to keep the door locked while making access simpler for homeowners and their families.
Keyless door locks use actuators, which connect the bolt to a small motor buried beneath the door or frame itself. An electrical impulse controls the motor, which can be triggered by devices like an electronic card reader or a wireless remote control sensor. Although this type of door hardware is ultra-modern, you can pair it with a vintage finish to create an antique effect.

Should You Choose a Schlage Door Knob or Lever?
Should you choose a door knob or door lever? While there are no hard and fast rules in this area, your home’s theme, and even occupants can sometimes tip the scale in favor of one or the other.
Traditional or Modern?
Since door knobs have been around longer, they tend to look more traditional. You might want to consider a knob if your home is Colonial, Arts and Crafts, or another legacy style. However, you can also find more contemporary door knobs as well. Finish choices, like flat black or satin nickel, can make your choices even more modern.
While traditional levers are available, they are more commonly found in homes with a contemporary or European-inspired theme. If your home has a minimalist décor and style, levers with streamlined designs and straight edges are especially suitable.
Who Will Be Using the Door or Lever?
With some families, a door knob might be better than a lever, and vice-versa. Ask yourself: who will be using the hardware more often?
- Children: Parents of curious young children prefer door knobs because they are harder for tiny hands to turn. You might want to consider a door knob if your kids are always getting into places they shouldn't.
- Seniors: Many people who are prone to arthritis and other grip problems prefer levers. When someone has difficulty with fine motor skills or grip strength, choosing a lever can reduce frustration and make them feel more comfortable.
- Those with Disabilities: When your motor skills are limited, or you are using crutches, walkers, or other mobility aids, levers may be a good solution. Levers are even mandated in some municipalities for accessibility compliance.
How to Clean Schlage Door Knobs and Door Levers
Aesthetic issues like fingerprints or smears can be tackled as needed with a damp cloth. For more intensive cleaning, the supplies you use will depend on the door hardware’s metal and finish.
Pro Tip: Door knobs and handles should not be cleaned with harsh chemicals or abrasives, as either one could scratch the metal or damage the finish.
Below are some recommendations based on hardware material:
- Brass or Copper: A mixture of salt, vinegar, and flour
- Crystal: General-purpose household cleaners
- Pewter: White cabbage leaves (yes, really!)
- Stainless Steel: Mild soap and water Crystal door knobs can be cleaned with general-purpose cleaners.

Schlage Door Hardware FAQS
How Do I Know What Size Schlage Door Knob I Need?
To choose the right size door knob, you need to know the diameter of the bore hole, the backset, and the thickness of the door.
- You can determine the diameter of the bore hole by measuring across it at its widest point.
- You measure the backset from the edge of the door to the bore hole's centerline. Most doors have a 2 3/8" or 2 3/4" backset.
