What is the difference between the 40-032 and the 40-033 outswinging storm door handle sets?

Donna from SWISCO responded:
The 40-032 has mounting holes that measure 1-1/2" installation hole center to center; the 40-033 has mounting holes that measure 1-3/4" installation hole center to center.
A home owner from MA says:
How long is the handle itself?

This is a picture of the 40-032 handle. The measurement from the top-lock hole to bottom-handle hole is 6". On the 40-033 handle, the measurement is 6-1/4".
A quick learner from Las Cruces says:
Can this be used as replacement for a Pacesetter storm door?

Donna from SWISCO responded:
I'm not sure what hardware Pacesetter storm doors used. Remove the current handle set from your door and try to match up the hole dimensions to one in our Storm Door Handle Set Catalog.
If you have trouble identifying it on your own, please reply to this discussion with pictures.
A home owner from New Jersey says:
What is the projection of the interior handle on 40-032? The handle I have now hits the lockset of the wood door behind it and cannot close.

Mike from SWISCO responded:
The inside handle projects inward approximately 1 3/4". Are you able to move the storm door handle up or down, away from the inside handle? Moving forward, you may also want to take a look at the Swisco 40-152 Pull Handle Set. You may be able to cover your existing holes with the back plates that come with this set.
