A home owner from eureka, ca. says:

I would like to know what the measured depth of the installed handle (lever)part of the 40-096 mortise door lock set is?
Also, does this lock set have a clear coat on it that will guard against corrosion when exposed to out door weather conditions?

Thank You in advance for your answer.

The back set is 1 3/4". Is that what you're referring to?

The lock does have a brass finish, but I still think it's susceptible to corrosion.

Hello again,

Thank You for the response. Actually, I was able to decipher the back set measurement of 1 3/4" from the description for the product. What I am trying to find out, is what the height measurement of the lever half of the door set is. In other words, when the set is installed on the screen door, how far does the lever project from the surface of the door?

Thank you again.

The spring loaded point of the latch sticks out 1/4".
