Dave from SWISCO responded:
The 40-167 storm door closer features a hold open washer. To hold the door open, you slide the washer over on the bar against the back of the pump. Note: the washer is not pictured in the product image of the 40-167

Mike from SWISCO responded:
Usually there are two types of storm door mounting brackets; most commonly is a triangle shaped end bracket that goes on the wooden door jamb. The door jamb holds the closer with a pin on the end.

The bracket that goes on the storm door may look similar to the Swisco 40-016 Standard Door Closer, Hook-in Attachment. Or, it may be a drop-pin attachment that may be similar to the Swisco 40-077 Standard Door Closer, Drop-pin Attachment.

Swisco also carries a newer style closer with a quick-hold feature, the 40-163 Quick Hold Storm Door Closer.
