How to Choose Whether to Buy a Left or Right Handed Lock 2

left or right handed guide

Here we can help you determine if you need a Left or Right Handed Lock

When deciding if you need a Left or Right Handed Lock, it is best to go to the door directly and stand in front of it, as if you are about to enter through it. Looking into the room you are securing, your office or home; determine if the hinges are on the left or right, when looking in. If your hinges are on the left, then you will need a left handed lock. If your hinges are on the right, then you will need a right handed lock. Deciding may be confusing due to the location of the handle on the door. When the hinges are on the left, the door lock itself is on the right side. This may cause a mistake.

If you ever have a problem deciding which lock will work for you and how to order it properly, feel free to call or e-mail a photo.

    Armando,

    The handedness of the lock does not depend on how the door swings (in-swing vs. out-swing). Depending on the lock, however, the mortise type may be be either in-swing or out-swing. Most locks companies, including FingerprintDoorLocks.com, will either include both the in-swing and out-swing mortise or have an option to select the direction when placing the order.
