I am going to order a 40-049 handle and strike plate will it fit my door ? Looks like it will work from the video and photo .

Thanks for posting! I don't think our 40-049 will work for you. Pella hardware is very specific and our 40-049 was not intended for Pella doors. Could we perhaps see some images of your original handle set? Perhaps we can identify what you need once we see what you already have.

Hi Tom, my name is Bruce and I have the same question. I have a pella lock set that went bad on my storm door. its thickness is the same 11/16ths I believe, but the screw holes on the side is 7 5/16" from center to center and I believe the 40-049 is a little bit off. I do know that the more popular Wright products set is identical to your set. all that is required is redrilling holes. I heard the wright product's lock set is inferior and the latch is constantly breaking. how reliable is your 40-049 lock set and is there any chance you have a pella compatible set that requires no drilling?

Thanks for contacting us, Bruce. Our 40-049 is pretty reliable, but like I said above, it is not meant for Pella doors and probably won't work. There aren't a lot of off-brand substitutes for Pella hardware.

I do not know if any of our parts can work for you, but if you were to show me a few pictures of your handle set I'd be happy to research a possible replacement for you.
