A handle lever set is a hardware component used in doors, typically in residential or commercial buildings. It consists of a pair of handles or levers that are mounted on either side of the door and connected to a latch mechanism that secures the door to the frame. Handle lever sets come in a variety of styles and finishes to match the decor of the building. Some popular finishes include polished chrome, brushed nickel, and oil-rubbed bronze. They can also be designed with different types of handles, such as round or rectangular, to suit different aesthetic preferences.
One of the advantages of handle lever sets over traditional doorknobs is that they can be easier to operate for people with disabilities or mobility issues. The lever design allows for the door to be opened or closed using a simple pushing or pulling motion, which can be easier for individuals with limited hand or arm strength. Handle lever sets are typically installed by a professional locksmith or door installer, and may require specialized tools or knowledge to properly fit and adjust the mechanism. However, many handle lever sets also come with detailed installation instructions that can allow for a DIY installation, depending on the level of experience of the person performing the installation.
