storm door closer...help
Our storm door closing hasn't been right since being replaced many years ago.
Been so long ago I can't remember how the doors worked before.
1st the door never opens at a right angle (90deg) to the house.
2nd, regardless of the adjustment it always slams 2/3rds shut before the adjustable action takes over.
screw adjust counter clock wise will slam shut..
screw adjust clockwise still slams shut 2/3rds then catches and slows down.
No adjustment in between helps.
I've seen doors out there that operate smoothly, I am looking for a door closer that will open and not hit me in the rear before I get inside the house.
The people at our local home stores cannot help.
I have even purchased new door openers, same action all over.
