A ‘Dummy Handle’ is one handle or a pair of handles that has no latching or locking function that are a non-turning door lever or door knob. Meaning these do not turn to open but rather used to push or pull to open or shut.
Dummy Handles are usually used as decorative door pulls, often found on interior French doors, wardrobes, linen cupboards, or pantry doors. These are mounted to a door simply to give the door a handle to pull open without turning.
To allow the door to stay closed you may require a door catch like a T37 – roller catch or a magnet catch like our T-Magnets. Some of our door lever handles may require a Dummy Kit. These are to be placed behind the door lever, this stops the lever from turning or moving. Dummy Door Levers also could be used to aesthetically to make a door look balanced and appealing.
