    Do not knock and do not call signs/registries don't apply to charities... Only to commercial organizations

    I have a fail proof anti-knocker system.

    It's a bit hard to install, and isn't mess proof, but it's 100% effective at keeping door knockers away.

    You have to install it in the window that's right next to the door for it to have a full effect.

    Yep - that would definitely be effective TL.

    Maybe a little more than this guy?

    Lol@ the dogs ha ha!
    Bummer that the registry only applies to commercial orgs

    I have seen signs in shops before "please do not ask for credit as refusal often offends"

    Am trying to think of a similar sign to put on my front door. I'm thinking:
    Please, no unsolicited knockers, as refusal often offends"
    ...but it doesn't sound quite right.

    "Please, no unsolicited knockers or we will unleash the hounds" ???

    PS my beef is, I don't want them to knock in the first place, I don't want to have to fob them off, I don't want to have to stop what I'm doing to answer the door, its a waste of my time and theirs (cos they are *never* gonna get a yes)

    We have one screwed onto the dog runs, next to the main gate. You could always attach it to your front door?

    They might be so uncertain of whether or not you're joking that they won't risk it

    I had one the other week who I could barely understand and I tried explaining I was on my way out and one of my daughters had just pooped her pants and I needed to clean her up and got the "this only takes a minute"
    I'm all for helping children, and my carpet. Which is why I needed to tend to my daughter. Bugger off!

    We already donate to 2 charities, we can't help everyone.

    The telemarketers, energy companies and charities have gotten really bad in my area. I think many have cottoned onto the fact there is a do not call register and people just hang up. When you have someone at your front door in front of you it's harder to get rid of them.

    Had a look at the do not knock page and it doesn't seem to be a register as such. Just a site that has the stickers and tips on how to get rid of them. but a do not knock register is really needed

    I just say I'm not interested and close the door. You could put up a sign "No Hawkers allowed"
    If all else fails I just don't answer the door.
