A New Twist on Door Knobs
Hampton Products, manufacturer of Brinks Home Security brand door handles, is introducing a new line of Push-Pull-Rotate knobs and levers, said to enable people to open their doors even when their hands are full. With an elbow, a hip or even a single finger, homeowners can push or pull open their doors without having to set down their groceries, their toddlers or their mobile phones, officials state.
“Americans have been turning knobs the same way for 135 years," says Julie Ernest, senior director, door hardware, Hampton Products. "The Brinks Home Security engineers have created an easier way for busy families to simply push or pull their way through a door, saving time and effort, and enabling people to literally open doors with their hands full. Whether you’re carrying groceries or your hands are dirty from working in the yard, the Push-Pull-Rotate knobs and levers make it easy to open the door.”
Available at Lowe’s Home Improvement stores and on Lowes.com, the Push-Pull-Rotate line of door handles are priced from $24.97 for basic interior door knobs to $54.97 for an exterior door handle and deadbolt set. The line includes a selection of styles, functions and finishes, including satin nickel and polished brass, with knobs and levers for both interior and exterior doors, and matching deadbolts to provide security.
Push-Pull-Rotate knobs and levers feature all-metal construction with cylindrical chassis, as well as hidden screws for enhanced appearance. The locks feature classic architectural styling and larger roses to cover blemishes left on a door by an old lock. Additionally, flat areas on the surface of the knobs and levers allow for maximum comfort when pushing.
“The Push-Pull-Rotate knobs and levers offer homeowners more flexibility and convenience, while still preserving the traditional rotate method that your guests are familiar with,” Ernest states. “At the same time, security is the cornerstone of our business and a top priority in the development of the Push-Pull-Rotate product line.”
