What is a left handed door lever?

3 min read

Asked by: Sandra Jones

What is door handing? Handing, when we’re talking about locks and levers, refers to the direction the end of the lever points when installed on the door. For example, if you’re standing on the outside of your door and the hinges are on the left, the lever will also be pointing left. It’s a left handed lever.

How do you tell if a door is right or left hand lever?

To identify if you require a right-handed or left-handed lever handle, simply stand on the side of the door where the door closes towards you. If the door is hinged to the right, you require a right-handed lever handle. If the door is hinged to the left, you will need a left-handed lever handle.

What is a non handed door lever?

A door handle set without a lock – ususally with a latch and free from both sides, while each lever handle is paired with a rose or plate, and fitted to an internal door.

Are all door handles reversible?

That is because not all interior door handles are reversible. This means that the design or the locking mechanism might be strictly for a specific side of the door. Moreover, there are also door handles that have a symmetrical design. No matter which way you rotate them, they will look just the same.

Does it matter what side the door handle is on?

Determine if your door will swing inward or out, as this can hugely affect your door choice. Stand inside your house in front of the door. If the current door’s hinges are on the right side and the door swings inward, then you need to have your knob or handle installed on the left side.

Which way do you install a lever door handle?

If you’re installing a lever, orient the lever just as you did with the outside housing, pointing away from the edge of the door. With the screw holes in a vertical position, align the square in the back of the door knob or lever with the square spindle. Slide the inside housing into place.
