Looking for a double sided lock-no key required


I'm replacing all the door knobs and in the master bathroom I have a knob that can lock/unlock from both sides without a key. I am looking for this type of knob in bronze but don't know what it's called...anyone know??? Also, where I could find one??

A door knob that can be locked and unlocked from both sides without a key... what's the purpose of the lock function? I would go with a non-locking door knob or a more traditional bed/bath faucet that can be locked and unlocked from one side.

I think what they are looking for is a privacy lock..... which you would find in a bathroom as Dane mentioned.

Lockable on one side, commonly by push button, emergency release on opposite side with just a metal "pinlike" tool. Used in bedrooms to keep out the young ones that just start traveling.

there are many and varied styles, brands and versions of privacy locks. The style and color ranges varies from brand to brand.

Yeah, probly means "Privacy" function. Pushbutton/turnbutton on inside knob, poke hole in outside knob. You may have to order from a locksmith if unusual finish is desired; there are several "Bronze" architectural finishes avail, ask your local smithy to see a catalogue/sample of avail bronze finishes. Expect to pay more than your garden variety brass/chrome/antique finishes.
