Larson Door Closer Instructions


Larson door closers are part of the Larson storm-door hardware, and operate with washers and hinges to close the door. These mechanisms look similar to other door closers with a long closer piece and connecting brackets. The instructions may vary depending on the storm-door model you have installed and whether it opens to the left or the right. Affixing the closer to the hinge-side jamb may be the most difficult aspect to this simple project. The hardware required comes with the storm door.

Things You'll Need

  • Closer
  • "Hold Open" washer
  • Door brackets
  • 2 #12 5/8-inch round head screws
  • Flat-head screwdriver
  • Long connecting pin
  • Side jamb bracket
  • Short connecting pin
  • 4 #10 1 1/2-inch round head screws
  • Pull out the extend rod 1/4 inch from the closer. Slide the "hold open" washer down the length of the rod until it sits behind the flanges and rests against the closer.

  • Slide the door bracket onto the end of the closer and screw with the two 5/8-inch round head screws. Slide the long connecting pin through the top of the door bracket and through the closer.

  • Position the closer within the side jamb bracket. Slide the short connecting pin through the top of the side jamb bracket and through the closer to hold it in place.

  • Position the side jamb bracket on the hinge side jamb 3 inches below the door window and 1/4 inch from the storm door. Screw the side jamb bracket to the hinge-side jamb with the four 1 1/2-inch screws.

  • Close and latch the door.
