Dog proof door handles our solution to stop your dog opening the front or back door

Because we sell door handles of all types we get all types of requests from customers as well

Recently we made up a pair of dog proof front door handles.  If fact what we did is we modified a pair of front and back door multi-point lock handles to stop the family pet letting himself into and out of the house when the door was on the latch.  The multi-point lock installed was working very free so the oval knobs I attached in place of the lever handle to the back plate worked the lock without any difficulty. My customer asked me to make up a door handle to stop the dog coming in and also going out so I added an oval knob to the inside plate as well as the outside plate of the door handles.  Now with the oval knobs fitted in the vertical position as in picture one below, the dog can no longer open the door from inside or outside by slapping the handle with his paws.  The polished brass finish is very good looking as well and these handles are 70 mm centres (keyhole to centre of the spindle) which is a difficult size to find.  We stock and sell all manner of external and internal door handles.
