GOOD DOOR KNOCKER / LETTERBOX NEEDED

Painting front door. Knocker and letterbox old brass type, corroded, pitted and ugly. Need to replace it. Trouble is brass stuff is a bother, deteriorates unless polished. Life is just too short for this and I know I won't do it..

Any alternatives. Need quality low maintenance door furniture. Standard size door, nothing grand.

You edit then move my request. How very dare you. :x

This is not a deal request (although always helpful). A request for advice on what materials / products to look for. People here are always very generous with advice and tips which is the beauty of this site amongst other things.

I need a door knocker, isn't that what they are called...............or are you thinking of something else?

A little more attention to detail is required Mod, before actions

Apologies iglimpse - I thought it was a genuine deal request thread & the thread title 'Good Knocker Needed' in MISC wouldn't necessarily produce the deal links you required for suitable external door furniture ? Moved back to MISC now & feel free to amend title back to remove ref to actual door furniture.

Great stuff thanks. I was going to paint the door black, so I don't think the cast iron would look right. Does this lacquer work for brass as well ?

yep - I always spray it on external door fittings / bolts etc before fitting. They last so much longer.

although you obviously wont be able to polish the brass after spraying so ensure it is spotless before!
