Customer Questions & Answers

does this item need to be install at the top of the door or can it be installed near the bottom of the door?

Asked by: slee
I've installed some at the top and some in the middle. It should be just fine at the bottom.

How to eliminate the noise of the spring tension?

I installed the spring door closer according to your instructions but there's a noise coming from the spring tension inside every time you close/open door. How can I eliminate the annoying sounds? I tried spraying with a W40 but no luck.
Asked by: JR
The problem is easily solved. With no tension in the spring use a screw driver to slacken the top screw just a couple of turns. This loosens the two halves of the body just enough to squirt a few drops of silicone lubricant (not WD40 which will create greater friction) into the loosened body, also onto the top screw. The lubricant with work its way through. Then tighten the top screw and fit the device according to the instructions. When in place open and close the door several times (maybe 20 or 30) and you will hear the groan of the spring start to disappear. The closer will work perfectly thereafter. I have several of these and always I have had to quieten them down but after years of working, they are still doing a great job, quietly closing the doors. I cannot understand why the manufacturers don't add the lubricant. But if this is all we need to do at this price who can grumble. These are a brilliant design. You may need to mop up a few drips at first. But don't use WD40 !

Brown Safety Spring Door Closer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent and elegant design I'm buying four-more for the rest of my doors throughout the home. Listen, I have a Victorian home. My doors are heavier than most. The product works perfectly and you hardly know it's there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value I own a variety of closers from Spring Latches, Spring Hinges and Overhead Closers. At first look, I was not convinced on the design of this closer, but after installation I was sold on it and purchased another two. This closer works as well or better than the other types mentioned and cost about the same or less. If you have rubber seals around the edges or bottom that rub against the door or frame, it is possible that the closer will not close the door all the way. You can always try setting the torque higher, but you run the chance of the door closing too hard or fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small ,strong and you'll barely notice it Very small. blends in with the door. Not big and ugly like the industrial style door closers. Using it on a solid oak interior door. Closes smooth and slow. Did have to remove hidge pins,clean and grease them. Only disappointment was the screws included are cheap and two broke off , even with drilling pilot holes before attaching to frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent I was a little Leary after reading the other comments, but decided to see for myself. Me and my husband build solid wood farm style doors and IT works wonderfully on them. We needed all interior doors to close automatically because of our dog. And this product did the job perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ingenious Design The door this was being installed on is a metal outside door in a commercial setting. The door does not lock, and just has a pull/push handle. The HD closer that is on the door originally, works, but as soon as the wind would pickup, the door would slam open. This little ingenious product, installed on the outside of the door, and works perfectly. It holds the door closed in wind, but the door is still easily opened. We kept the original closer installed, and use that closer to adjust the closing speed. I do not know how well the new closer would work by itself (seems like it might be prone to closing a door to fast?), but this thing works exactly how I needed it to in my application. Very easy to install, seems very durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money in the long run I have installed two of these closers in January on basement doors leading down. Very easy to install and works as it should. The bad thing about this design is the plastic runner. After a month of use, the two pieces of plastic begin to chatter as the door opens and closes and noise never goes away.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't do the job Had to look up video to find recommended drill size which is 3/32 (instructions don't mention this). Tried tensioning and it couldn't close the door all the way, after trying to get it one more over the spring tension snapped.
