please help my storm door...
I've replaced my door closer (old one didn't do the do) with a new
"Wright" brand "medium duty" closer (beefiest looking one I've found)
and the door closed with a satisfying slam. Then I went to leave, and I
discovered that with the wood door behind it closed, it won't latch -
apparently the main door is airtight enough that it causes air pressure
to build up between the two doors when the storm door tries to close,
and it stops just short of latching. Can anyone recommend a closer that
actually has a positive closing action that really works? I thought I
remembered sometime in my past having played with a closer that would
slowly close the door and then when it got within a few inches of the
latch would really suck it closed.
As a sidebar, the sheetmetal screws provided to mount the bracket to the
door stripped before tightening down (aluminum frame) anything for it
but to get some rivet nuts in, say, 10-32 or thereabouts?
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
