Storm Door Handle Choices?


The original storm door on our front entry is in need of replacement. My wife and I have started researching what is available have discovered that it seems that the only inside handle offered is one of those 4-5" lever types. Having torn several articles of clothing over the years on handles of this style, I detest them and am looking for an alternative.

Can anyone point me towards a manufacturer that offers a regular knob for the inside handle (or some other design that won't snag pockets and folds of fabric)? Any idea as to why it seems that the entire industry has standardized on a design destined to destroy clothing?

Thanks!
Jeff

I think it may have to do with compliance with Americans With Disabilities Act?
