40-181 stormdoor closer questions

A home owner from Arlington tx says:
Does this product actually close the door or is it simply ensure that it is drawn back shut? Can you increase the amount of closing force and closing speed independently? In orther words can I have it use more force to close the door without having to make it swing faster?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
Yes, you can increase the force by setting the closer tube attached to the spring pack past 90 degrees to the door. Take a look at our video on how to install the 40-181, that could answer any of your questions. Also make sure that the 40-181 is the closer you need, since it can be a little tricky to install.
