Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nate Better than OEM Anderson
My door pistons were damaged when strong winds caught my Anderson 4000 series door and slammed it open for several hours. I considered ordering the OEM set but these units were available immediately at my local Home Depot. I purchased both the bump-stop for the bottom and the conventional piston for the top. They offer a bit more resistance than the OEM Anderson pistons and should help to prevent recurrence of the wind issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jackjay no problem
I've had this item for several years and it has always worked great. Today however I experienced the problem with the door stuck in the open position that others have cited. Came here to see if there was an answer. I found that the problem is caused by an air lock. If you take the closer off the door (easy to do just pull the two pins) and turn the adjusting screw on the front end, the piston will release and you can reset the closer and it should work fine. I think the piston locks if the door is opened past the 90 degree point and the door holder button is depressed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gem50 Works just fine for me
I've read the other reviews that trash this opener. Those folks' experiences are not what I've experienced. So far, (we've had it about 3 months) the closer has worked just fine. It has held the door open with tapping the bar and has closed just fine by pushing open a little. One of the main reasons we tried this was because the description says it will eliminate the door slamming at the very end. Ours does that just fine. You cannot hear the door close but you can watch it close and the latch engage. Perhaps they've corrected whatever issues there were with the closer, or perhaps only those that have problems wri\ote reviews. Ours works great.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Judecat Annoying until I read solution
Thanks to Jayjay's review, we got the air lock released in the door by loosening the screw in the side. I thought we'd never get the door closed again, and we just removed the darn thing until I looked it up and found the solution. The lock works OK; just need to see if it jams it up with the air lock when used.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Junk - buy any door closer but this one.
Like other reviewers, the closer worked fine for a month or two before getting stuck in the full open position. I tried all the tricks I know, and then tried the various solutions proposed on this and other websites. Just buy something else and save yourself the aggravation.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great Design, Poor performance
Door closure has a great idea, to hold door open easily with just kicking latch. Latch works and releases nicely. They forgot to make the original/main function of a door closer to work. Open door and it slams in your face until past halfway shut, then slow close mechanism kicks in. I expected it to work like most closers. When you open door and release, it would spring back a little before closer kicked in and slowed door closing, which you can adjust. This thing would slam past half way shut before it even began to slow door down. I adjusted it from no close to super fast close and the first half of shutting made no change. Used it one day and is in trash can now.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete excellent product
Easy to install over previous holes from old closer. Door shuts softly and latches. I am very happy with this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gt4him Don't waste your money
I bought the Wright Closer V2010 about 2 months ago. To be honest, I always like to try knew products and since this had a button lock/release mechanism I thought I'd try it. Bad mistake on my part. This new type of release won't release once you've engaged the lock feature. I've followed the directions but the stupid thing just is not user friendly. I am returning it and getting the "old-fashioned" washer type of closer. I hope you take my recommendation and look at other closers.
