Re: Storm door hinge decision

Each version has its issues. I once had the situation as depicted in the top drawing and hated it. I always had to open the storm door more than 90° to get close enough to the edge of the interior door to open the lock with my right hand. It eventually broke the storm door.

The next storm door was installed like the lower diagram. As pointed out previously, you had to walk around it a bit, and it limited the angle of approach when attempting to carry in larger/longer objects, but I found that overall it worked better for me.

Good luck with your decision.
