question about handles for wooden screen doors

A quick learner from Plymouth says:

I have a new construction wooden screened in porch with two wooden doors 1" thick. Door jamb stops are 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" stock which I can cut/modify as needed for striker position. Looking to install Black Lever type handles for both sides of door. Do not want any deadbolt assembly on doors. Door number 1 is In-swing. So, a 40-028 In-swing door handle set, 1-3/4" should work. Is the included striker spring-loaded? Door number 2 is Out-swing. I did not see anything like the 40-028 but for an out-swing door. Out-swing 40-058 and 40-177 have deadbolts which I do not want. Is it possible to install inside handle lever 40-150 (out-swing) onto the 40-028 (in-swing) to convert it to and out-swing assembly? Looking for options. Thanks, Steve

For an in-swing door, the only option would be the 40-028 in-swing handle set. We also have the in-swing 40-006 closer bracket if you plan on installing a door closer like the 40-077

As for the out-swing door with lever, I believe you could use the 40-177 and simply not use the dead bolt. Take note that the idea of an inside handle being a "push" type, like this, is for easy exit. You would just press the handle and go. You could purchase the 40-150 separately to use as the inside handle instead, but I feel the inside push handle that comes with it would be better. 

Take a look at the parts listed along with related videos and let me know if you had any questions.
