Installing a doorknob

February 27th, 2010 Posted in Abu Dhabi

Our flat (apartment) is part of a villa (house) that has had some random walls and doors installed so that the owner can lease it out in sections to multiple tenants. The main entry to the interior hallway/stairwell previously had no way of staying closed. It had a knob, but no latching mechanism. The knob didn’t even turn, it’s was just a way to grab hold of the door in the event you wanted to open/close it. The front door existing in this state for at least as long as we’ve lived here… over a year.

A few weeks back the landlord (not to be confused with the owner) was sweeping out the hallway prior to showing an empty unit. He was complaining about the amount of dust that had come into the hallway during a recent sandstorm. I told him that the door needed a proper handle/latch so it could stay shut. He agreed. He said he’d take care of it after the weekend. Nothing happened.

Silly me… I thought maybe he was waiting until the next time he had work out here. He’s been out here countless times since. One of our “neighbors” even mentioned something to him. Nothing happened.

A week ago I was in Musaffah (that’s a whole blog post in and of itself) picking up a plumbing hose for under our kitchen sink (another blog post) and finally bit the bullet. I bought a handle/latch/lock assembly for AED 80 (about $21 US) and intended to take matters into my own hands. Yesterday I did just that.

There’s been pretty hardy winds as of late and the dust/sand has been everywhere except, I’m happy to report, the hallway of our building. It’s amazing how much gratification I’ve taken from installing a doorknob. Back in the States I’d have to build my own shed or change an axle-shaft bearing to get this kind of satisfaction. Now all it takes is a door knob. You know why? Because it takes as much effort on my part to get that done here as it would to get those other jobs done back in the States.
