How to

How To Determine Left or Right Handed
When buying entrance door levers and dummy levers, you need to know if you want left-handed levers or right-handed levers. To determine which sided levers you need, stand on the outside of your door (keyed side), and look at the side that the door is hinged on. If the door is hinged on the left, it is a left-handed door. If the door is hinged on the right, it is a right-handed door.

A note about Handlesets with door levers: Even though the lever is on the inside of the house, you still stand outside of the house to determine door handing.

Q & A

The Satin Nickel finish is nickel plating on brass that has been lacquer coated and made to appear dull. Satin Nickel is sometimes referred to as brushed nickel. It is similar in appearance to brushed stainless.
