DT Swiss RWS thru axle lever / handle?

I think I asked this q once before but will try again. My 2019 Roubaix came with DT Swiss branded rims but the thru axles don't have attached levers, so I use an allen key. I'd like to have those levers if they can be retro fitted to my axles.

Will these separately available levers work right on my existing axles?

Yes they will. If they are the DT Swiss thru axles, they will "click" into place and you can leave them on. If they're not DT Swiss, you can still use them as the tool to remove your wheels.

do you know what i'd look for on my axles to determine

if they are actually DT Swiss. i only want the levers if they will stay on the wheels. otherwise allen key will do.

If you stick a 6mm in and it immediately fits, it's not a DT Swiss.

The opening of a DT Swiss is round, and slightly larger than a 6mm hex. Looking in the opening, there's an o-ring, and under that you will see the actual 6mm hex. This is the lever retention system and the 6mm thru axle. When used with the DT Swiss lever, it allows the lever to stay in place.
