Squeaky 40-181 upon installation

A home owner from USA says:
Just replaced my storm king 440 with the Swisco 40-181. I have one problem, the closer squeaks/groans when opening. Closes fine. Is there anything that I can do to eliminate the squeak/groan when opening?

Sorry to hear about the trouble. It should be easy enough to fix, though. Try some WD-40 spray lubricant on the seam of the spring pack. That should do the trick.

I sprayed a little WD40 around the seam of the spring pack and like magic, the squeak/groan is gone. Thank you for providing a solution to my problem. This site is awesome!
