Our heart bee door knockers are all hand made from solid brass and crafted using traditional techniques.
The Bee’s unique and beautiful shape features a beautiful finish, detailed wings and of course our famous shiny stripes running across the body. The wings and body of the bee are attached to the heart, whilst the heart shaped striking plate is separate and attached to the door so the bee can knock on the plate and create the perfect knock.
Approximate Dimensions Heart Bee:
Height – 13cm

Distance between screw holes - 10cm
Screw Length - 6cm
Our heart bee door knockers are supplied with 2 screws which are easily attached to any type of door whether it be wooden, UPVC or composite doors. The top of the heart is screwed from the inside of the door into the screw hole on the top hinge. The second screw is for the heart striking plate and is screwed from the inside of the door into the striking plate which sits just under the bottom of the bee’s body.
How to care for your bee door knocker
Your door knocker should just be washed with warm soapy water. Always avoid using abrasive materials which could scratch the surface.
Are you door knockers suitable for UPVC or Composite doors? Yes! Both! The Bees are attached to the front of the door with the screws provided and our Hearts are bolted to the door from the inside with the bolts provided.
How can they “bee” attached if I have glass panels in my door? The answer is simple, attach a small piece of wood the width of the bee fixing plate to the door first, paint it the same or similar colour as your door, then attach the bee to the wood, this will bring the wings from the raised panels that frame the glass.
