The closer lets the door close adequately until the last 6". At the point, the hydraulic pressure suddenly releases and lets the door loudly slam shut. I would send it back if Home Depot would take it.

The adjustment screw is designed to slow the closing of your door until the last few inches when the latching feature kicks in to insure your door latches closed. If you are unhappy with the latching feature re-position your door bracket one or two notches further away from your door closer. Your door will close before the latching feature is reached. If you have any other questions please contact our Hampton Care team at 1-800-562-5625 or at www.hampton.care, one of our associates would be happy to help you.
