What Handing Do You Need, Left Or Right? – Suffolk Latch Company


What Handing Do You Need, Left Or Right?


Ever since we have listed our cottage latch and our rim locks, we have had people calling up asking us what handing they require. I thought it would be easier to explain it to everyone here.

I feel the best way to explain this for you is to imagine you are standing in front of the door on the side that opens towards you. If the door is hinged on the left hand side, you will need a right hand latch. As you can probably guess, if the door is hinged on the right hand side then you will need a left hand latch. 

I hope that clears up any problems you may have had!
