While different types of door handles are designed with unique components, the average handle has basic components. For instance, in addition to the knob top, which is the large knob that you would actually grab hold of to turn, handles are made with a spindle, shank, and knob rose. The knob rose is a round washer or plate used to form a socket. This piece is adapted so it can be attached to the actual door. Then, there is that spindle, which is the thin piece to which the handle attaches. The shank is the stem that projects from the door handle. Within the shank is a hole in which the spindle would be placed. For functionality, the door handle would be attached so the metal shaft can turn the latch to open the door.
