There are tons and tons of options when it comes to choosing a knob or lever for your entry door, but sometimes your door has special needs, which limits the options a little. An example would be an entry door with a screen or storm door and a regular old standard door knob or lever won’t work because it may protrude out too far. You need a special knob lever that doesn’t stick out too far because the space is tight and limited.
That’s what the Brass Accents Salem low-profile lever is all about! You can tell from the picture above, the lever is slightly different than regular door levers. It’s specifically designed for extra tight spaces to use for when you have a swing screen door, patio door, or sliding screen doors. It only projects as far as 1 1/4″ (compared to a regular door lever that projects 2 1/2″ give or take) which helps give room when there is such a tight space.
With the Salem Low Profile lever you get to choose from 13 different finishes, such as polished brass, antique brass, polished chrome, weathered black, weathered rust, satin brass, oil rubbed bronze, pewter, satin nickel, venetian bronze, antique copper, polished nickel and verdigris!
The Brass Accents low-profile lever is not available in a keyed function (only as a passage function or dummy function), so you would need to use a deadbolt along with it. Brass Accents offers a low profile deadbolt available that would be nice if low profile is what you need to work with. The deadbolt may not be on the site yet, so please contact us if you aren’t able to find it and we can place the order by phone!
NOTE: This low profile lever is designed with a 2″ backset latch (*not a standard 2 3/8″ backset or 2 3/4″ backset size latch).
