If you want to double check the handedness of a door, stand with your back against the hinge jamb with the door open. If your back is to the hinges, and the door swings to your left, it is a left-hand door. If your back is to the hinges and the panel swings to your right, it is a right-hand door.
Determining the Swing of the Door
- Open the door.
- Stand with your back against the open door.
- One shoulder will be on the hinge side.
- One shoulder will be on the “open” (non-hinged) side.
- Your hand of the “open” side is the door hand.
