Here’s a quick guide that will show you how to determine the handing of your door to ensure you choose the right door hardware and lock for your home.
Handing is a term used to indicate how a door swings. To do this, you'll need to stand on the outside of your door. Notice where the hinges are.
- If the hinges are on the left, you have a left handed door. You will need a left handed (LH) lock.
- If the hinges are on the right, you have a right handed door. You will need a right handed (RH) lock.
