Lock Handing

This method of handing locks only applies to residential door hardware. Some locks like lever handles and front door handlesets are handed, locks with knob handles are not handed. Some brands of door hardware have lever handles that are reversible. If a lock is reversible you do not need to worry about the handing when placing your order because you will be able to change the handing when you are installing the door hardware. Determine the handing of your door by standing on the outside of the door. If the hinge is on the right, it's a right handed door, and you need a right handed lock. If the hinge is on the left you need a left handed lock. See the illustration below for examples of how to determine the door handing you need when placing your order.
