Shed/Playhouse door handle?


I am having trouble finding a handle that would be good for a playhouse. I need something that will be able to open from both the inside and outside.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

If the door is too thin, glue and screw a 6"x6" block to the inside and then drill it for a standard knobset.

or.... use one from a screen/storm door since they are for thinner doors as well.

Two good ideas, storm door handle would be the easier.
Duh I should have thought of the storm door handle, as it is what we used on ice shanty years ago.
