Third screw for Product code 40-034?

A handy person from USA says:
HI. I need to replace the handle on my storm door and Item# 40-034 looks like it will fit on the top screws that are 1 3/4” apart but there is a third mounting screw on my old handle that is 5 5/8” from the top screw. Does your handle have a screw down at the very bottom that has the same center to center spacing? Thanks.

P.S. I looked all over my handle for marks or stamps and there is nothing.

Thanks for posting! Yes, our 40-034 has a third hole at the very bottom. The distance between the lower mounting hole just below the button release to this third hole at the bottom measures 3-3/4".

If it doesn't line up for you, you may want to consider out 40-152, which has an attractive backplate to cover up the bottom hole.
