Product Overview

For the heaviest doors, choose Ideal Security’s pneumatic (air pressure) door closer with torsion bar. Designed for heavy, out-swinging aluminum, steel or wood storm doors over 1-1/2” thick. The flat torsion bar on the closer flexes under pressure, providing extra closing force and aiding in the latching of heavier doors. The door closing speed is adjustable with the air adjustment screw. The tube is aluminum, which will not rust. QUICK-HOLD FEATURE ------------------ No more fumbling with stoppers to keep your storm door open. Simply push the door open slowly until you hear a click, and the door remains open at a 75 degree angle. To close the turn simply push the door further, then release. INSTALLATION ------------ Easy to install, using the existing holes on your door. If this style of closer was not on your door, new holes may be required. Please follow the instructions. The closer can be installed at the top, middle or bottom of your door, depending on its construction. Brackets and screws for installation are included. To protect your door and door closer from damage, we recommend adding a storm chain (SK14).Ideal Security supplies storm door hardware to quality door manufactures across North America.

Questions & Answers

what is the difference between quick hold and touch hold?

Asked by Q5 May 27, 2018

Answers

Quick-Hold is open the door to about 80 degree and let go the door, the door would stay open, push open the door a bit further and let go, the door would close by itself. Touch&Hold is open the door to your desired angle and hold it there, tap on the switch by foot to lock the door at the position; push door further and let go the door to close.

Is there an advantage to having a closer with a torsion bar ?

Yes, it keeps it from slamming into you when your hands are full and closes more gently.

Our storm door was slamming shut every time we used it. Because it was a special kind, we found it at Home Depot online. Shipping was prompt and came as promised. It was an easy install. Sits open while you carry groceries through it. Then, a gentle push, it closes without slamming.

Overall, I am pleased with the product. It seems durable and made from high quality material and so I am optimistic that it will function well over several years. I had hoped that the mounting holes would exactly match the existing ones on the aluminum door. However, when I followed the instructions for pre-tensioning the closer (extending the piston an inch or so prior to mounting) the wholes in the tensioner bracket didn't allign with the old holes in the door. It was not a problem to drill new ones but the job would have been easier if all lined up at the start. One other problem was the automatic quick hold feature (whereby when the door opens to a 75 degree angle, it remains open until pushed a few degrees beyond this catch point. The problem is that 75 degrees is not a particularly wide arc and so many times when the door opens (e.g. when the postman or other delivery services open the storm door) it passes the 75 degree trigger polnt and subsequently has to be manually dis-engaged from the auto hold. I would up unscrewing the closer and then disabling the quick hold by twisting the piston within the cylinder (per Ideal's instructions). After re-miounting the door works fine. So, I really do not use the auto close and didn' t need to pay extra for it.

There was nothing in the description that indicated this was a 70-degree opening. I cannot use the opener because it does not open wide enough and plan to return it.
