Adjusting a Storm Door Closer7545228
Make a simple closer adjustment to keep your storm door from banging shut, or remaining open when you reduce or increase the glass panel for winter or summer time.
Make changes to your pneumatic display door closer (storm door closer) twice a yr when you exchange the screens and glass storm panels. Move the lengthy connecting pin into the forward hole (for winter) or rear hole (for springtime) of the closer every time you change the storms or screens. If necessary, adjust the stress manage screw on the closer as nicely.
The next time you readjust the screens and glass storm panels in your self-storing combo storm door, do not neglect to change the location of the lengthy pin connecting the door bracket with the door closer tube (photo). When the glass storm panels are down, location the connecting pin in the front hole of the closer tube (closest to the door bracket). This increases the closing pressure on the door in the final few inches of travel to make sure that the door latch snaps into the catch. When the screens are down, location the connecting pin in the rear hole of the closer tube (farthest from the door bracket). Now, rather of slamming shut, the door will slow down as it nears the door catch. To improve or decrease the pressure exerted by the door closer, turn the screw controlling the bypass valve in the closer tube. Refer to the directions on the pneumatic screen door closer label.
