  • Patent number: 5072977
    Abstract: A latch retraction device for narrow stile doors which may be hinged either on the left side or on the right side, and which utilizes a push or pull actuator for retracting the latch instead of utilizing a rotary knob for that purpose. The device utilizes inter-engaged toothed elements to provide linear to rotary motion in a novel configuration of parts which permits one set of parts to be utilized to provide either a push or a pull actuation for latch retraction with either a right hand or left hand door and thereby eliminating the necessity to manufacture and inventory a large number of parts to accommodate all four types of desired uses.
