Questions about your 82-034 Legacy Handle Set w/ Key Lock:

What are the dimensions of the part referred to in the video as the screw plate? (I would call it the door plate.)

Can the handle set be installed so that the thumb latch points away from the edge of the door (as shown in the Set Installation Guide diagram) or does it have to point toward the door edge as shown in the video and all the photographs on your website? It will not clear our doorjamb if it has to point toward the edge.

Thank you for posting. The total length of the plate for the 83-034 is approximately 8-7/16". As for the thumb turn, it can be turned in the opposite direction. However, the positioning will be different when you lock and unlock it. That is to say, when it's locked, the thumb turn will be pointing down, and when it's unlocked the thumb turn will be pointing up.

Follow-up question: What is the width of the plate?
