Tips to Install Right-Handed Door Levers

Many people do not know how to tell if they have right handed door levers or left handed door levers. There are a few different ways that you will be able to check this. When it comes to installing your right handed door lever this is one of the most important things to understand.

Right or Left Handed

In order to tell you will need to stand sideways in the opening of your door. Take a look at the part of the opening where you have the door latches that are in place when the door closes. Whatever side the door is on will determine what side it is. For example, a right handed door will be on the right side.

Fitting Latch Assembly

Whenever you are fitting your latch assembly you will need to make sure that the new hardware is going to face correctly. This means that the flat side of your latch needs to face the same way that you are whenever you are standing on the interior part of your door.


Whenever you are getting your hardware and parts together you are not going to need to specify whether it is for a right or left handed door.
