    Default Pull something forward you/in the front direction

    Is it okay to say, "Pull the lever forward you" or "pull the lever in the front direction" if I want somebody to pull the lever in the direction where s/he is standing?

    Pull the lever toward(s) you.
    Push the lever away from you.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
