I apologize in advance if this post is confusing. Let me know if additional clarification is needed. =)
I'm planning to install a new front door and am confused on what the appropriate "hand" orientation of the door would be. The schlage handleset I'm planning to get comes in right-handed and left-handed lever models.
Here's a picture of the old/original door:
On the Amazon page, there's also a helpful diagram:
Based on this, I would conclude that I have a left-handed door.
But here's what confuses me: on the same amazon page, there's another diagram:
This doesn't make sense to me. The second diagram makes it appear that the "left handed" lever will stick out to the left. If that's the case, I would think that I would want to purchase the "right-handed" door lever.
