Product Overview

The Ideal SK8730 for storm and heavier screen doors includes a heavy duty pneumatic (air filled) door closer, wind chain and a special wide base bracket for the door closer. This door closer is for out-swinging doors. The wide bracket allows for new holes to be made for extra strength in holding the door closer in place. The heavy duty closer features a winter and summer setting for when screens are used instead of glass and features an air by-pass for extra latching power. The storm chain is used to protect the door, the glass and the door closer pump from being damaged if a strong wind catches the door as it is opening. The SK8730 door closer is for storm and screen doors that are from 1-3/8" to 2" thick. The closing speed is regulated by a screw at the end of the tube. Tightening the screw will slow or stop the closing. If your door is a lighter weight you could use Ideal's SK9 door closer. The door closer in the SK8730 is the same as Ideal's SK1730 series of closers, except the SK8730 includes a storm chain and special wide base jamb bracket. All fasteners and brackets are included for a complete and easy installation. The wide base bracket is available without the door closer as the SK26. This door closer is original equipment quality. IDEAL Security supplies storm door hardware to quality door manufactures across North America. The SK8730 is painted white. The storm chain is painted white. All screws are painted white. Door not included.
  • Same popular closer as SK1730
  • Includes door protector chain (SK14) and large jamb bracket (see SK26)
  • Pneumatic door closer and chain
  • Screen and storm door hardware
  • SK26 wide-base jamb bracket with extra-long screws provide added strength and allow for new holes if your old holes are stripped/damaged
  • For out-swinging doors 1-1/4" - 2" thick
  • IDEAL Security has been providing OEM-quality storm door parts to manufacturers across North America since 1956

I don't think this has a foot brake, if I know what you are talking about. It has a small square tab on the extension bar that you slide with your fingers to keep the door open. otherwise, it is white and heavy duty. We have two door closers on our doors since we live in a place with high wind. fyi

It depends what you had before. If you have a compatible storm door closer, you don't need new holes. Check out the storm door closers on our website where you can find videos and written instructions.

I like the spring/chain on top of door to stop the door from opening far enough to cause damage to door or closer. However from what I read here I would say your door should not have been open and held with the closer.

Main reason I bought this is because it has the the chain. Due to high winds and kids not making sure that the storm door is properly closed when we have high winds, I have had to replace the closer 5 times. Hopefully this does the trick as the chain will not let the door open pass a determine amount this not causing the door closer to break.
