Just wonder why this 12 century old door knocker still being attached for door use, isn't it only good if it preserve and displayed in the museum instead. For sure many have an interest for this. The thief will just value this for huge cash and not a piece of art and history. For people out there don't put or use you think knocker like this old on your door, better use modern security lock and knocker or perhaps digital doorbell, for more idea about doors that has built in and customize knocker check http://caldwells.com/, they are even more safe and secure door.
