How to install the 40-189 door closer

  1. Fix the closer vertical to jamb on the hinged side of door.

  2. To set the tension, turn the center of the closer opposite to the arrow.

  3. Place the arm into the nearest hole to the door.

  4. Fix the slide plate into position to protect the door.

Tension Adjustment

Turn the center boss away from the door with the supplied steel bar and screw the arm into the hole nearest to the door. To increase tension, repeat the operation one hole at a time. To protect the door from marking, fix the supplied slide plate into position.

Once the door closer has been properly installed at the proper tension, fill the open holes with the provided plugs.

Warning: Do not over-tension the door closer. Over-tensioning will cause the spring to buckle and the door to slam.
