I recently built my mom a new screen/storm door in woodworking at school but neglected to put a proper handle on the thing. This weekend we went out and bought a latch handle (large handle on the outside and the little push thumb handle on the inside). However, the outside handle is curved like so:
My mom wants to put the handle at a similar height to the handle on the main front door. I, however, feel that is awkward and should be at near chest level. Where does one mount this type of handle for comfortable use? I believe the normal handle is 36" about the jam, but that feels much too low for this handle.
