Door Handle Assembly for Cole Sewell Storm Door

A home owner from St Louis says:
Looks like I'll soon need to replace my storm door handle assembly on a Cole Sewell door (Estate Series ES397951, for what that's worth). After reviewing articles on your site, it looks like I will not find an exact replacement since Cole Sewell is no more but it seems your 40-152 model Pull Handle Set *should* work. I've attached photos of what I have so please verify (or correct) my assumption. I'd like to get the outside handle in polished brass and would like the inside assembly to be white. (Same setup as I now have.) Can I order that combination for the presumed 40-152 or do I need to get a separate inside assembly? Thanks.

Hi there!

Our 40-152 is a confirmed substitute for this old handle set so this should work fine for you. If you want a compatible inside latch that's white, see our 40-150 .  

A quick learner says:
How does the exterior handle work to open the latch? I see how the push handle works on the inside, what about from the outside?

A spindle joins the exterior and interior handle together. When you turn one, the other turns with it. I hope this helps!

A quick learner from Portland says:

Thanks for the quick reply! So the front handle on 40-152 turns? It looks like it is a fixed pull.

Really appreciate this message board btw. Very reassuring

Correct, the 40-150 handle indeed turns. And that's great to hear! We're glad you found us!
