Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BhamEd A great replacement product
I have a glass door with two door closers. the bottom one would not close. So, I found this replacement based on the manufacturer of the old one. The replacement is better than the original. Been working exactly as expected for several months now.
Would highly recommend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DRL Touch'n Hold Smooth Single Kit (Sandstone) - Standard Duty Pneumatic Door Closer for Storm and Screen Doors
Very easy to install. You need to have the two closer system. One closer is weak and does not shut the door smoothly or completely and if not closed completely during a medium wind does reopen the door.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cwhermann Decent Touch'N Hold Storm Door Closer
The closer on our brand new Anderson/Emco storm door was no match for February winds, as a gust blew the door right out of my hand as I opened it. Unlike previous events which either bent the closer rod, ripped it off the door jamb, or both, this time the closer itself just ripped open right at the end cap.
Since the Anderson warrantee doesn't cover wind damage, and not wishing to pay Anderson's exhorbitant price for door closers, I found this other brand on Home Depot's website. After doing some research on HD's and the company's own site, I went for the Smooth Close model. It was EXTREMELY easy to install - just popped out the two existing retainer pins, lined up this unit (keeping all the Anderson brackets in place), and replaced the pins. Took about a minute.
It does the job, on calm days. If you have ANY wind your door is subject to, DO NOT LET GO of the door until you manually push it closed. The closer does NOT have the oomph to hold and pull the door closed against any wind. Also, if your main door has a decent weather tightness, the air pressure seal created when the storm door closes against it can NOT be overcome by the closer's final pull, again requiring a manual push.
The site says the closer body is plastic. Quite frankly, you can't tell. It has the weight, appearance and feel of aluminum.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigErn Good replacement for the original door closer.
Bought this door closer to replace the original one which became defective (it would no longer allow door to close -- had to remove it). Closing the door now possible with this new closer, but need to keep in mind that U need to push button to hold it open -- NOT to allow door to close (kind of counter-intuitive). Would be better if U had to do it for both operations -- holding door open AND allowing door to close.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happycamper Better than the original
I was able to replace the closer that I got with the Anderson storm door in a few minutes using the existing hardware. So far this closer is much better than the original one which surprises me since I always felt Anderson made a really good product. Not perfect but a good product for the money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shaws04 Easy to install, Durable
I ordered this online and had it shipped to the nearest Home Depot store. It was shipped in a timely manner, HD was very communicative throughout the entire shipping and receiving process which made it worry-free for me.
I have an Anderson storm door. This closer kit came with everything I needed, and even a few extras. It was easy to install, it works great, and looks good.
