  • EASY, ELEGANT UPGRADE: This stylish lever handle and inside latch replace any standard storm door handle set. Along with the matching keyed deadbolt, add both curb appeal and security to your home.
  • UNIVERSAL COMPATIBILITY: The handle and deadbolt are compatible with most (but not all) pre-installed handles. VERIFY DIMENSIONS BEFORE PURCHASING.
  • DOOR COMPATIBILITY: This handle set should work with any out-swinging storm or screen door. The package includes hardware (spindles and screws) for doors from 1" to 2-1/8" thick. If your door is thicker, you may need to buy longer hardware.
  • NO LOCK: This handle does not include any locking mechanism. For a handle set with a lock, look for one that features either a deadbolt, a keyed lock, or our WC or SK10 locking inside latches.
  • EASY INSTALLATION: Installation is easy whether you're replacing a handle (use the existing holes! ) or adding a new one.

You get everything shown in my pic and you need a hacksaw You get everything shown in my pic + a set of smallkeys (post office box size).You will need:- a hacksaw or a real saw with a metal cutting specialty blade. You may be able to bend the deadbolt bar with huge muscles and two pliers, but I wouldn't rely on it.- a Philips screwdriver- a 5/16 drill bit- a 3/8" drill bit- a marking tool (I used dry erase in case I made a mistake, but pencil is better).- a clamp or vice, or clamping screwdriver for holding the deadbolt bar while cutting itIt's easier to do with two people, but could be done by one. Assembly took us 1 hour.Choose the hardware lengths first. Cut the drill hole template after because the instructions 'cut line' will split your measurements apart in a bad place, making it hard to use (not impossible).The finish on these is true brushed nickel/steel, but not the same color or texture as your fridge or trash can-more like a doorknob or brushed nickel faucet. It's smoother. Some other posters showed a pink hue on theirs, so I took a chance and was pleased to learn the pink is due to the reviewers' cameras.These are real metal quality handles and locks, like your front door knobs, except for the receiver hook part, is cheap plastic and the deadbolt catch is plain steel or aluminum. That makes it look like crap, like I jankily assembled it from leftover parts I had laying around, not a pricey kit. I'm probably going to replace both catches with a nice one asap. -1star for that.The handle can be positioned for right or left entry, but it's not truly reversible. The curve will go up (hill) if your door hinge is on the right when you face your home from outside, and down (valley) if the hinge is on the left.NOTE: The instructions say to cut beyond the measurement for the deadbolt bar. If it is too long, your lock will not turn when screwed down all the way. Ours was too long following that direction BUT we ended up using a spacer to bring the bolt inside further and it was no longer too long. So, to keep from ruining yours by mistake, my advice is to screw the deadbolt onto the door without the bar inside. Position the catch correctly and add any spacers, THEN accounting for the spacers if you have more than one, cut it and get it on there, see if it turns. If it doesn't, cut one bar off and try again until it does.We started with the door hardware first, then did the jamb hardware. This worked really well and prevented having to move holes around because we could hold the catches up on the jamb and see how the latches would interact with them before we filled the holes. We had to move ours out a few mm. from the pattern.For the jamb holes and spacers, if you have any insulating strip between the jamb and the screen door, consider the gap between that and the jamb when positioning your screw holes for the catches. 4Took about 3 hours to install This handle and lock took way longer than I anticipated to install. This handle is designed to work on a 1 inch thick door at the minimum. My door was about 3/4 inch thick, so I had to hacksaw about 1/4 inch off the smallest bolt and 2 screws for the handle to fit properly. The deadbolt itself required the use of 2 layers of the included plastic plates to raise it up enough to line up correctly. The included latches did not stick out far enough to catch, luckily I had some old latches that worked. I would have given 5 stars if the included latches had worked and if I hadn't have needed to shorten the bolt and screws.Pros: Looks stylish; quality construction; unlockable/lockable with the provided keyCon: Does not fit all doors widths. Pain to install for this reason. 4A great replacement latch. My sears storm door handle broke. I was struggling to find a replacement and stumbled across this. The issue is that many others had dead bolts or weren't in the right color or had other issues. This product looked to fit perfectly and it did!The good:The unit came with clear instructions and boatloads of screws. These were included to ensure that it could fit doors of all thicknesses.It included the inside and outside latch (as pictured) and the part that screws into the door frame which is not pictured.The installation was really straightforwardThe bad:I agree with others that it is hollow and probably of lower quality than the handle I replaced. I am okay with that given the inexpensive cost.Summary:This was a great purchase and I am happy with it. The mere fact that it was available in multiple colors and just worked in my door was good enough for me. Sure, I wish that the handle was not hollow, but given the price, I really cannot complain. For me, it warrants a five star rating. 5Good Purchase! (Read for Detailed Review, Add'l Measurements, Experience Notes, & Tips) I think this is a great deal! I just installed it tonight so I can't speak to its durability but the pieces look nice and feel sturdy. The product shipped quickly and no parts were missing.My storm door handle (11+ yrs old) broke and it was a challenge finding a replacement because I wanted the new set to fit the existing holes. My old hardware didn't have a keyed lock; it was just a lever handle on the outside with a push latch and slide deadbolt inside.My installation had many errors, so it took a while. Some were because I had no experience swapping storm door hardware (though I've changed front and internal door components many times) and some were due to inadequate instructions and diagrams.I did a lot of research so I'll provide details in case it's helpful. It's the info I wanted when I was shopping around and things that probably should be included in the description and instructions.PRODUCT INFO-This latch set has no mortise or tubular locks, so it requires no pockets (bore holes) in the door frame. Both lock and handle hook onto your existing storm door jamb or the provided strike plates.-The lock and handle are separate pieces so you can install one or both; they're not dependent upon each other.-The lock and handle each require two screw holes spaced 1 3/4" apart plus center holes for the spindles. You need at least 5 5/16" between the topmost and bottommost of the four screw holes to fit the lock and handle together.-Unless you have a very wide door (maybe 2"+?) you will need to shorten (CUT) the flat, notched metal spindle (rod) used inside the lock. I did it manually with a hand saw, which required some time and physical force. However, you can skip this step if you don't plan to use the outside keys, and everything else should fit right out of the box. That spindle only matters if you want the keys to lock/unlock the sliding deadbolt from the outside. Don't bother cutting/installing that internal piece if you won't use the keys; the deadbolt will work fine from the inside without it. (The manufacturer provides five differently-sized spindles for the handle, so no cutting is required for that component on standard doors.)PERSONAL EXPERIENCE/NOTES-I cut the deadbolt spindle as directed but it was too long, so maybe err towards a shorter notch. Luckily, there was a plastic deadbolt spacer included (though it was mentioned nowhere in the instructions or diagrams). I installed it on the inside between the door and the turn knob and this allowed me to properly secure the lock.-During installation of the lock and/or handle, don't completely tighten screws until the very end. You'll want to tweak the alignment to the door, and lock and handle to each other, before finishing.-Fit the lock pieces together before installation to confirm alignment and functionality.-If you spin the key outside and nothing happens then that means the spindle isn't properly engaged. Ensure it's properly situated by separating everything, placing key lock in place, inserting spindle from the inside, then reconnecting deadbolt.-The deadbolt should slide easily. Loosen the screws if it's difficult to turn.-I didn't install the included deadbolt strike (bracket) as the bolt hooked just fine behind the lip of my existing storm door jamb. The strike might add a small degree of protection but I don't view this lock as a true security measure, nor should you. It's just a deterrent and I give the manufacturer credit for stipulating that (though they likely did it for legal purposes).-Where instructions reference "machine screws" it means the gold-toned screws that come in multiple lengths with flat tips. Where they reference "tapping screws" it means the silver-tone screws in short length with pointed tips. (Maybe most folks know this but I didn't. A parts list would have helped.)-Sawing the deadbolt spindle was mildly aggravating but the biggest challenge I had was aligning the screws to join the inside and outside pieces. This was no fault with the product itself. I mention it only in case you also have difficulty so you know you're not alone!I give this product four stars right now. It has two notable issues: 1) The requirement to cut the lock spindle, which some buyers can't/won't do, and 2) Terrible directions and diagrams that don't even reference all provided parts. Nonetheless, I was able to install it, and the extremely low price for what appears to be a quality product rebounds this to a four in my book.If the manufacturer provided multiple pre-cut lock spindles (as they did for the handle) and improved the description and accompanying printed materials (to include a parts list, detailed instructions, and diagrams with all parts) they could easily charge double and it would be a five-star product if it proved durable. 4Look elsewhere or buy a different one... We replaced an identical looking plastic handle with this one because I thought since I had to drill no new holes that it would be quick and easy. Wrong. In hindsight I should have just drilled over the existing holes with a bigger handle. I do like the finish. It looks nicer than my old plastic one. I wish they would have made the handle solid instead of hollow...makes it feel very cheap.As previously stated by another reviewer...they give you a plethora of screws and spindles for a door from 1 inch thickness to 2 1/8. My door is 1 inch thick as are many/most storm doors yet for some reason there are no screws or spindles that will work for this thickness. The smallest they give you is still too big. So you either have to go to the store and buy new hardware or cut them with a hacksaw. This should not be necessary. Took me about an hour and a half and plenty of frustration due to this.The other thing that bothered me is that the inside top locking mechanism is too short. there should have been some kind of spacers included to make it stand further off the storm door itself. I can lock this onto the back of the storm door but it has a little give to it and could be pulled open pretty easy if someone wanted to. I actually made my door less secure with this one. I didn't even install the hardware for it to lock into because it wont reach the wood section of my casing. 2You need something to cut through metal for the deadbolt spindle This was a replacement for a mostly identical set where the spring in our latch finally broke. Easy replacement but for someone installing on a new door or replacing a different set, I can see how this set could be a little difficult. We were lucky and able to keep the strike plates for both deadbolt and latch without replacing them. You can tell they are cutting costs by providing only one deadbolt spindle in the package that you need to saw off to the correct size (we were able to keep the original one thankfully). Also, the strike plate for the latch is now made of plastic when our original was metal, although it is thick plastic and appears to be sturdy. They could of included several size spindles for the deadbolt like they do with the latch instead of making you cut the metal (not everyone has the tools necessary for this). Overall good quality and easy install, however we were replacing a similar set up on a standard size storm door so it made it a lot less painful. 5Fits Larson storm doors. I have a Larson storm door from Lowes. It has to be the most common brand but at lowes the replacement handle they sold did not fit. In fact all the packages there had been opened and returned! Anyway this fits. Quality is about what you would expect for price. Real brass would probably cost three times as much. They supplied various spindles and screws but all were too long and had to be cut. As I did not have a vice this was a bit tedious and turned a 10 minute job into a 40 minute job. I don't know where they use 3 inch thick storm doors but but this would probably fit! 4It works, looks nice, and is a reasonable cost Good price, and only had to drill holes for new strike location.. I m glad it was offered for sale. it replaced hardware on Larson door that is prob 25 yrs old.The handle grip is hollow on the backside, and feels a little weird at first.I could not use the inner piece of the deadbolt due the strike depth. My old deadbolt mated to the new outer piece, which surprised me. By doing this, i was able to keep the old strike location for the deadbolt.It comes with several different lengths of hardware for various door thicknesses.I did not give it a 5 due to the deadbolt issue, it does not totally cover the old hardware shadow. 4Fits thicker storm doors My screen door measures at just about 1 1/4" thick. Over the course of the last couple of years, I have gone through 4 different door latches from big box hardware stores. These either did not fit (although advertised compatible with 1 1/4" doors) or broke because of poor construction (although some were more expensive than this one). The overall construction of this handle is excellent. Most of the construction is made out of medal and the screws come in various lengths to be compatible with doors even thicker than my own. The only negative comment I have is that the outside handle itself is made out of thick plastic and is not medal. It still feels to be well made, so I will have to see what life I get out of it. Overall, I feel this is an excellent handle for higher quality storm doors. 5If you want to use the keys, make sure you have a metal cutting tool I was replacing an existing deadbolt and handle on a metal storm door. Therefore I already had all the standard holes and didn't have to measure and drill them out. I can't speak to how hard that would be.If you don't want to use the keys to lock and unlock from the outside, this is incredibly easy to install. Fit the two matching pieces through the holes, put the appropriate length screws through the holes (plus the correct length handle spindle), and screw it together tightly. All you need is a phillips head screwdriver. It should take about ten minutes.However, if you want to use the keys, you need to install a metal spindle in the deadbolt. If you're replacing a similar deadbolt you can likely reuse the correct length spindle you already have. Just don't accidentally drop it inside your hollow metal storm door like I did.A super long spindle comes in the package which they expect you to cut to the correct length. Determining the length and installing it shouldn't be hard, but you need a way to cut the spindle. Regular scissors definitely will not work. If you have a saw or small metal cutting tool you should be fine. I don't. Miraculously I found a pair of tin snips I didn't even know I had. Three or four really forceful attempts later I managed to cut the spindle. Once it was the correct length it took two seconds to install. Now the deadbolt works perfectly. 4

The only negative comment I have is that the outside handle itself is made out of thick plastic and is not medal. It still feels to be well made, so I will have to see what life I get out of it. Overall, I feel this is an excellent handle for higher quality storm doors. 5If you want to use the keys, make sure you have a metal cutting tool I was replacing an existing deadbolt and handle on a metal storm door. Therefore I already had all the standard holes and didn't have to measure and drill them out. I can't speak to how hard that would be.If you don't want to use the keys to lock and unlock from the outside, this is incredibly easy to install. Fit the two matching pieces through the holes, put the appropriate length screws through the holes (plus the correct length handle spindle), and screw it together tightly. All you need is a phillips head screwdriver. It should take about ten minutes.However, if you want to use the keys, you need to install a metal spindle in the deadbolt. If you're replacing a similar deadbolt you can likely reuse the correct length spindle you already have. Just don't accidentally drop it inside your hollow metal storm door like I did.A super long spindle comes in the package which they expect you to cut to the correct length. Determining the length and installing it shouldn't be hard, but you need a way to cut the spindle. Regular scissors definitely will not work. If you have a saw or small metal cutting tool you should be fine. I don't. Miraculously I found a pair of tin snips I didn't even know I had. Three or four really forceful attempts later I managed to cut the spindle. Once it was the correct length it took two seconds to install. Now the deadbolt works perfectly. 4
