As for 4. For a door to be viable it needs to have a knob and key hole to turn. I'd say that any pin tumbler lock would do. So even a door with a simple door handle and a cylinder lock would let you use the Key, it wouldn't need to be a doorknob per se.


Lou's kitchen door is a standard 3 lever lock, no pin and tumbler there.

Re: The laws of The Door


Hm, I watched the whole show today (since I got my DVD box in the mail) and can't remember the doors in Lou's house.
I'm not sure what a "standard 3 lever lock" is, I'm not a native English speaker.

But did you see Joe open the door to Room 10 on such a door and can you describe it in more detail?

The scene is in the kitchen when the two are talking, Lou turns to talk and Joe's gone. You then see the edge of the door behind glowing as it shuts. The door lock has knob and old fashioned keyhole below. Lever locks look like this: http://www.lockwarehouse.co.uk/images/Yale-M320.jpeg
Here in the UK 3 levers are normally used for internal low security doors and 5 levers for external doors where security is required the most. I'm not sure of the US standard lever lock for a cupboard door, but I doubt high security is needed.

I guess that's just a little something that went wrong in the production of the show then, because the key only should open tumbler locks.

Just made these, sorry about the quality most is down to the camera motion and poor DVD encoding from the US boxset.

Then again I could be wrong, the knob appears to have a central circle with a horizontal line through it.

Squint at the picture and see what I mean. Then again it could be just a design mark.

Here's a shot from my DVD, enhanced with contrast.

I don't think there is a lock in the nob.

Still 50/50 to whether that door is double locked, or single via the more obvious keyhole. Does anyone know of such a lock existing like that?

Oh that is THE most common interior -decorating gimmick... to use an old door and just put a modern handle (with a lock) on it... so ugly *me thinks*

Re: The laws of The Door


Sometimes it's more down to time passing and the house ageing as generations of owners change things naturally. If your home is old enough you'd see the same happen, rather than it being a modern interior design cliché. I live in a Victorian period yellow brick cottage and have many antique pitch pine doors throughout, with generations of lock furniture changes and additions.
