Installation Instructions


What is a backset?


"Backset" refers to the distance from the center of the bore (drilling) to the edge of the door. Both US and Euro lever sets are available with either a 2 3/8" backset (standard) or 2 3/4" backset.

NOTE: Backset dimension MUST be specified.

Example A:


What is a strike plate?


"Strike Plate" refers to the decorative jamb mounted receiver where the latch first makes contact.

Both US and Euro lever sets are provided with a "T- Strike" (standard)

NOTE: a "Lip Strike" may be substituted for Both US and Euro lever sets.

What is a 3 piece rosette?

Our modern lever sets and deadbolts have a 3 piece rosette technology. We use a steel (not plastic!) sub rosette and the outer rosette screws on (not a clip on!) ensuring a precise grip to the door without any visible screws or holes.

  • Piece 1: Sub Rosette = The steel sub rosette has an easy assembly base and uses male/female fixing bolts to ensure a robust bolt through connection.
  • Piece 2: Inner Rosette = The inner rosette is a spring loaded plate which holds the lever for quick assembly. The modular design accommodates all lever shapes and ensures the fittings are aligned correctly.
  • Piece 3: Outer Rosette = The threaded outer rosette is screwed over the whole assembly offering a secure, safe and precise fitting. The rosette can be unscrewed when required but will not work loose in normal use.

A US size lever set vs a European size lever set

Rossette Size:

"Rosette" refers to the decorative washer connecting the knob or lever to the door.

Select from the larger 2 5/8" (UER) rosette or smaller 2 1/16" (TER) rosette.

2 5/8" (UER) rosette:

US lever sets are assembled with the 2 5/8" diameter rosette; this option is ideal for pre-bore (pre-drilled) door slabs. [Example A]

2 1/16" (TER) rosette diameter:

Euro lever sets are assembled with the 2 1/16" diameter rosette; this rosette requires a smaller diameter, multi-point bore (drilling). [Example. B]

Note: Euro lever sets are also available with 2 1/16" squared rosette.

How do I clean my stainless steel modern levers?

We always say that if you clean your levers, (just like cleaning your car) you can prolong the finish and the life of the lever for as long as you own your home. We only use high quality stainless steel for our levers. SDH.com recommends using stainless steel cleaner at least once a month to take off any residue that may accumulate on the levers. SDH.com offers stainless steel cleaner. If you do not have any stainless steel cleaner, use hot soapy water. Please NEVER use any harsh chemicals, chlorine, bleach etc… Harsh chemicals will ruin stainless steel almost immediately.


What do the terms Passage (PAS), Privacy (PRI), and Dummy (DUM) mean?


Both US and Euro lever sets are available as "Passage", "Privacy", or Dummy.

“Dummy” function is used for doors that do NOT require a functioning latch

Example: utility closet

How to determine the handing for modern lever, handle, and knob sets?

All of our modern door levers, handles, and knobs are reversible. You do not have to specify right or left when choosing between a passage (PAS), privacy (PRI), or dummy (DUM) set. The key component is the latch which has a rotating head to allow for a right or left hinged application.
