Exterior Door Handles
Common Door Levers Styles & Features
A Keyed Entry door lever is keyed on the exterior and thumb-turn on the interior. A Keyed Entry lever is usually used for a front door, however sometimes they are used in offices.
Privacy door levers have a functioning latch mechanism and a push pin lever that is typically used for bathrooms and bedrooms. A safety lever allows the door to be opened from the outside if necessary. Privacy door levers do not require a key to be levered or unlevered.
Passage style door levers have a functioning latch mechanism but do not lever. They are typically used for closets, interior doors that do not require levers or in entryway sets in combination with a deadbolt.
Dummy style door levers are used for ball catch doors or other applications where a latch mechanism is not needed, but a similar aesthetic effect is desired.
