Questions concerning 40-189 door closer

A handy person from Canada says:
Hi. We have an outswinging patio door that we need to be able to close automatically. The 40-189 looks perfect. We have some questions.

1. Can we install this device at the top part of the door?

2. Based on the pictures I have attached, does it look like this device would 'fit'?

3. Is this your own device or can I buy this in Canada?

4. Any idea what shipping would cost to Alberta, Canada?

Thanks! You have a really great website!

Thanks for posting, James. I will try to answer your questions as best as I can.

1) Installing near the top should be okay. I don't see why that would cause any problems.

2) I'm not sure if this will work on the door I see in your third picture. It seems the frame sticks out relatively far from the door. It may be too deep for the 40-189 to be effective. Keep in mind the rod is 4-3/4" long.

3) You can purchase this item directly from our site. We do ship to Canada.

4) I do not know what shipping would be, but it would be calculated for you automatically before checkout is finalized.
