There are several ways to tune your lever harp to take full advantage of your sharping levers. Some people keep their harps tuned to the key of C, while others tune some strings to flats allowing them to play in flat keys.
This handy reference sheet by Aedan MacDonnell takes the mystery out of levers, tuning, and keys. It shows you the four most useful tunings, or keys, in which to tune your lever harp; the keys each tuning allows you to play in (and the keys you cannot play in); and where to place your levers (up or down) to play in each key signature available in each tuning. This guide was written especially for those without an understanding of basic music theory. It is also useful as a quick reference for anyone with a theory background.
This PDF includes the 1-page Levers at a Glance chart, and a 1-page explanation of how to use the chart. It is best if printed on a color printer, but it works fine in black and white.
