Dave from SWISCO responded:
One problem could be that the wood trim around the door casing is too high. I suggest building up the slide plate that attaches to the door. This might solve the problem. Also take note that the 40-189 is for doors that weight up to 150 lbs. Could it be your door is heavier? Finally, check to see if the door will close shut with the 40-189 removed.
