Answer: 
Take it part way off the door by taking the pin out of the top where the piston hooks to the door (not the jamb). Leave the piston still connected to the jamb connection. Pull on the pistion as far as it will go and it will disconnect. Keep holding on to the piston and SLOWLY let the rod go back into the piston. If you just let go of it it could be dangerous.

Turn the adjustment screw clockwise to slow down the close or counter-clockwise to speed it up. The second adjustment will determine how fast or slow the last 6" of the close is. There are 2 holes in your Jamb bracket. Connect the rod to the jamb bracket in the hole furthest from your door jamb. If a slower close is preferred then remove the rod and relocate it into the hole closest to the door jamb. Have a great day! Read Less

The descriptions says it releases the door; the answer to the first question says it holds it. Assuming it releases the door, how far open do I have to push it to get it to hold?

Phil-If you want your door into a lock open position, tap the button. Give your door a quick push further open to release the door back into the closed position. Thank you!

Heavy Duty Tap N Go Closer in White is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 13.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE A 2x4 DOOR FRAME! I bought this due to it's convenience- I have an Anderso... DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE A 2x4 DOOR FRAME! I bought this due to it's convenience- I have an Anderson for the front storm door with a similar concept, yet the button is on the TOP, which makes sense (it's also a 2x6 door in the front). My back door is in a 2x4 frame, which means that when the storm door closes the hold-open button on the closer hits the exterior door, engaging the hold-open feature...this results in the door wanting to stay open as you exit. This could easily be solved by locating the hold-open button on the top (as my Anderson is setup), but alas this design flaw had me returning to the store where they happily refunded my money and I bought the old-fashioned type (same company, Wright). This may work well for a 2x6 door frame with a larger gap between the exterior door and the storm door.

It has a design flaw, if you mount to the old brackets the rod is to short,and will lock open and never close again. It really should have negative star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PRODUCT REPLACED BECAUSE OF MISUSE NOT DEFECT OR POOR FUNCTION This will be my 2nd time replacing... PRODUCT REPLACED BECAUSE OF MISUSE NOT DEFECT OR POOR FUNCTION This will be my 2nd time replacing the lower closer of our storm screen door. I am replacing with the SAME exact model that was originally on the door and that I used for the 1st replacement. The upper door closer has yet to have any issues beside a few loose screws (probably because my kids cannot reach it lol). first lasted 2 years, second lasted 8 months Not because the product failed but because of misuse by children (standing on the door closer), a slip I had on ice coming out of the house and caught myself with the storm door and some extreme winds. Each time this door closer was broken at the jam bracket, which is good, you want the jam bracket to break in extreme conditions so that the door does not pull on the jam bracket and screws, hopefully not messing with the door frame and door jam. That would be a more costly fix than this less than $20 closer. All of the bad reviews on here are all, in my opinion, due to error of installation and understanding of how to adjust properly for your preference of force and quickness of the close. The PLACEMENT OF THE DRILL HOLES IN YOUR STORM DOOR PLAYS A HUGE factor into the adjustment process. I actually had to drill a few holes in my storm door to get my preference of force and quickness when I replaced the first time. Trial and error since I had never done any door repairs of any kind before this . After my adjustments the door shut quietly, quickly and COMPLETELY. Only after the misuse and the jam bracket beginning to break did I notice that the door would not always shut completely if our main door was shut. (if main door was open when entering the house it always would shut). Since I cannot get my 2.5 year old to completely stop standing on the closer (which starts to bend the jam bracket and then a few huge gusts of wind and I am sure to have to replace again). I am going to install a heavier duty jam bracket that has 2 more screw holes into the frame (which also has a larger surface that is flush to the door frame) hopefully to distribute the occasional pressure of any 30 lb. princesses. As far as the wind I am installing a wind chain to absorb the force from wind gusts and hopefully reduce the stress on the jam brackets and screws. For when Mother Nature is stronger and/or quicker than my reflexes. Sometimes you have to open the door wider than normal to get the door to release from being in the held open position. Not a big inconvenience or reason for me not to re purchase this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worked as expected. no problems Easy to install. Since I was replacing existing closer, I didn't have to drill new holes or mount brackets. I wanted this for the one tap hold open feature.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You'll be sorry! Like a lot of other reviewers, mine got stuck open when used to prop open the door. I finally got the rod to go back in to the closer but I'm afraid to use it to prop open the door in the future, so what's the point of having it? I'm going to the cheaper model with the old fashioned friction washer concept.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Adjustment of closing speed too difficult The "tap n go" feature is handy, and works well, but feels like it might be getting ready to fail, after only 3 months of use. Also, like a closer that WalMart offers at less than half this price, it's closing speed adjustment is VERY touchy: although the closing speed adjustment screw turns at least 3 full times, there's a mere 20 degree window of adjustment wherein the door goes from not closing AT ALL, to slamming shut. Even AFTER painstakingly adjusting it, the door STILL swings shut freely that last foot or so. It might be necessary to go to a much more expensive and heavier-duty a unit, if you want your door to shut quietly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Adjustment is terrible - use the lighter unit Like a prior review stated the closing adjustment is terrible. The door either won't close or slams shut. I have a fairly heavy glass door and returned this unit for the lighter duty TAP N GO and the lighter unit works perfectly.
