Determine door Handing.

Open the door that you need hardware for.

Stand in the doorway with your back to the hinges. You will be standing sideways in the opening, looking at the part of the opening where the door latches into place when closed. Which side of you is the door on?

If the door is on your left hand side, it is a left handed door.

If the door is on your right side, it is a right handed door.

Doors that swing outward are an exception. If your door swings outward, this rule will be reversed. Most exterior doors, such as patio doors, swing outward. If the door to an interior room swings out into a hallway, you might also need to reverse the rule.
