Leverage a look that works with Schlage's most stylish levers.
Monday, July 1, 2019
One of the easiest ways to give your home's look an upgrade is to replace conventional door knobs with simple - and simply beautiful - levers.
Style and function
Schlage offers distinctive door levers in a variety of finishes, styles and trims. With such a wide selection, it’s easy to find the perfect match for both function and style. There are electronic keypads and smart locks, as well as privacy (Bed and Bath) locks and passage (Hall and Closet) locks. All of this makes Schlage levers as versatile as they are stylish.
Speaking of versatile, levers are also easy to open for children, people who find gripping door knobs difficult and those who literally have their hands full. Carrying grocery bags or a laundry basket? Levers are “elbow friendly” for instances like these. And Schlage levers can be easily installed in minutes using only a screwdriver.
From classic looks that never go out of style to bold contemporary designs, Schlage’s levers and door handles fit and accentuate virtually any décor. With a wide range of interior and exterior door levers, trims and finishes, it’s easy to find just what you’re looking for.

Which hand is which?
Levers for handlesets and non-turning locks need to be chosen based upon which direction your door opens. Does it open to the left or to the right? Schlage’s lever model numbers are conveniently marked on the product packaging as left handed (LH) or right handed (RH), accordingly, to help you choose the lever that’s right for your door. For straight levers, like the Schlage Latitude lever, handing does not apply.
More handy tips
With so many lever designs to choose from, a little preparation prior to purchase goes a long way. When heading to the hardware store, it may be helpful to bring your old door hardware for reference. Also bring pictures of the door and doorway you’re working on as well as your room setting. If you’re not sure what style you want, snap some photos of what’s available in the store and use them as reference at home. And, again, depending upon the specific application, don’t forget to make sure the lever you choose is handed correctly.
