Help with Storm King 440 closer

A home owner from Loretto, mn says:
I have a Storm King 440 door closer that is not working. it works on the metal service door from the laundry room to the garage an automatically closes the door.
Would your heavy duty residential closer work?
Thanks for your help.

Ah, the old Storm King 440. I'm familiar with this closer. I'm afraid it's no longer being manufactured. First, I would try lubricating the tube and the bar that goes into the tube to see if that helps with the operation. If not, or if you absolutely need a new closer, you could consider our 40-181. It's similar to the Storm King 440, though not exact. It's our best match for that old hardware. Review it and let me know what you think. We also have a video on how it installs.
