Installing an In-Swing Storm Door

A home owner from MN says:
I've read all the other questions about turning a out swing door into a in swing door using hardware purchased on this website. What i don't understand is how the door would be installed. I can't find any videos on the subject. Is the hinge attached to the frame mounted in reverse or am I missing something. Everything I see in my mind is telling me that the window on the storm door would have to opened from the outside. It would be great to see a video or better documentation on this.

What you want to do with an in-swing storm door is to install it as if you were doing it on the outside of the house, but you will be doing it on the inside of the house. That's all it really takes.
A quick learner from MN says:
The door style I'd like to use has this type of door handle attached to the door. (see picture attached)

Is this door type usable?

thanks in advanced

Thank you! I have received your picture. You can turn or flip the latch tongue either way on some of these doors to make it work as an in-swing. Look at the directions that come with your handle. They should tell you how to flip the lever to reverse it.
