Wobbly door knobs...

Is it possible to have door knobs that dont work loose and go wobbly?? DH tightens them about every two months but they pretty soon go rattly again. Is it because they are cheap porcelain B&Q ones - if I invest in expensive chrome ones will they be more solid? Or should I just change them for the lever type handle? Any advice from knob experts?!!!

There are two possibilities: (1) the hole in the door is too big for the stem of the door knob; (2) you do indeed have crappy knobs. Most likely to be the first. You can sometimes change the stems - they are available from DIY stores, and fix the problem.

Knobs are not as good as handles in this respect though. We have horses arse handles (carved ornate wooden jobbies) but then we live in a character (read dirty old) property.

They probably are crappy knobs as well.
