Dummy door knobs are one-sided “fake knobs.” They're usually installed on the surface of a door or behind it. Some come in pairs so you can use them on double doors.

This type of door doesn't have a traditional latch, but sports a magnetic or ball-catch that holds the door shut. The dummy knob is installed on the exterior side of the door and used to pull the door open and push it shut. Handlesets are versions of inactive handles that serve the same purpose.
The main types of door functions are Passage (doors that don't require locking), Privacy (a door that can be locked by a button on the inside), Dummy (has no mechanical latch and acts only as a pull), and Interior Mortise (door with an active latch with skeleton key lock).
Regardless of the type of dummy door knob, you only need to pull the knob to open the door. Likewise, when closing, you only need a simple push. There is no latch to operate when you use dummy door knobs.
Half dummy door knobs are non-locking door knobs that don't have to be rotated or turned when opening or closing a door. Instead, you simply pull on the door to open it. Half dummy door knobs are mainly used on double doors that close side-by-side, such as on cabinet and wardrobe doors.

In many cases, you can replace a door without replacing the frame, as long as the frame is in good shape, and not warped or worn. If the door is not closing properly or there are gaps around the door that need to be insulated, you'll want to determine if the fault is with the door or the frame.
