Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Faulty hardware damaged an expensive entry door! Do not buy.
This kit is a nightmare. I strongly advise against purchasing it.
My second set of plastic mounting brackets just broke, so I am in the market for a new system.
I initially had this installed by a contractor when he was installing my new door. Everything looked great for the first few months. I had purchased a brand new hard wood door with beautiful grain, had it stained and glossed, purchased a clear glass storm door that would show off my brand new door, and figured I would get these "heavy duty" pulls. They are "heavy duty" to the extent that they slam your storm door when you let it go, even with just one of the pulls installed. They are not heavy duty to the extent that the plastic mounting hardware LOVES to break.
My first issue arose when FedEx decided to leave a package behind the my storm door. I guess they didn't want the door to slam, so they let it closely lightly and it didn't latch. The first gust of wind that could grab the door blasted it open and snapped both mounting brackets, leaving a nice jagged plastic shiv on the end of the tension rod. By the time I got to the door, the plastic shard had gouged multiple fissures into my hardwood door.
I called Greenstar, as the plastic mounting hardware cannot be found separately, and explained my plight. They apologized for the inconvenience and set me up with replacement parts that wouldn't be available for a few weeks and I waited. New parts arrived and installed easily, but it became apparent that the accident had left a nick on the actual extension arm of the pull and it would sometimes lock open on its own. I found some online help that suggested I spin the rod and place the nick in a location that would not engage the lock....done. Fast forward two years.
I came home yesterday to find my door swinging wildly. Second set of plastic hardware was destroyed and there were nice new additions to my hardwood door again. Forget this thing. Go with something that will stay screwed to your jamb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by xyz1234 Easy application and great features.
My experience working with the online and on phone associates were excellent. The associates gave me many different options before I made the decision to purchase this product. The product comes in different colors which made my decision a lot easier. The application of the product was very simple and easy to install. Finally the product was shipped to my satisfaction and on time. Thank you so much the great service and excellent product.

The door springs were fairly easy to install. Wish the holes would have lined up with old existing holes, but a small price to pay. Works as expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deva The end of heal slamming is here!
I bought a new screen door from Home Depot and saw in customer reviews that it didn't come with hardware. When it came down to deciding which pneumatic door closer to get, I was distressed. I have five glass storm doors in addition to this screen door and at various times, the pneumatic closures can morph into heal biting demons! I picked a set that looked good but all the reviews for this particular one were really good. Although my door is white, I was only able to order the black set online but since the door is in the garage, I didn't really mind. This set works very well! My husband installed one at the top of the door and I installed the one with the stop feature on the bottom. The pneumatics are smooth and bring the door to a slow stop before closing completely. It has never dropped the door on my heals or allowed it to hit me where the Good Lord split me. That's all I could ever want out of these things. This is a great set and easy to install. The price is good too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sue Works well with my storm door
This is my third purchase of this door opener, unfortunately my tenants can't remember to secure the door during a wind storm....After trying several brands of replacement closers, this one is my current favorite. The installation is straight forward. It is way easy when the brackets are already aligned & set up and all I have to do is replace the top & bottom closer. You can adjust the closure speed and slam of the door which is nice since I have a removable screen and glass insert which require different settings.
