I'm having a problem with my Andersen/Emco storm door which is about one
It has 2 door closers; one at the top and a push button one at the bottom
for holding the door open. The problem occurs with the pin that holds the
bottom closer to the jamb bracket. This pin rises up with repeated openings
and closings of the door. About once a week I push it back down or else it
will keep rising until it disengages from the bottom hole of the bracket.
I guess I could put the pin in upside down although I haven't tried this
yet. I would appreciate any suggestions as to why this is happening and how
to fix it.
Thanks in advance,
Does the pin protrude out of the bottom hole enough to put something like
aluminum tape around it so it won't fit through the hole to come out.
Fancier but not so easy - tiny hole through the end of the pin with a
piece of wire through it.
Find a tiny cap nut in those boxes maybe at the Borg.
Find a longer pin.
Q is why does it do that? It it possible the bracket is not vertical
causing it to ride with tension?
