Reversed 82-240?

A home owner from Highland, CA says:
I have the 82-240 but it's style is "up to lock" and "down to unlock". So when the door is locked my dogs can unlock the door but pushing it down. Do you have a thumb lever (same dimensions) that is "down to lock"?

What you describe sounds like it has more to do with the inside mortise lock than the thumb lever. You should see if you can flip your mortise lock upside down. That should reverse the operation of the thumb lever.

I can't believe I wasn't smart enough to figure that out! Thanks for your help; that did the trick.

My pleasure! Let me know if you ever need anything else. And don't worry, the function of these little bits and pieces isn't always obvious at first glance.
