Dose the job
21 Feb 2014

"This door closer is a fraction of the cost of others on the market and works very well
Although some of them have come missing parts I think this is a blip (bad batch)
Would recommend !

You get what you pay for
26 Nov 2013
By Wilfyc
, Newcastle
"Having read the reviews for this product I was fairly confident that it would do a reasonable job for the low cost. However, when it came to putting the closer together I found that the spindle was locked solid and would not budge (even with encouragement from a large wrench). Spend a little more and get a more recognised/reliable brand."

Easily fitted
24 Jul 2013
By Riggers386
, West Yorkshire
"Fitted one of these on the office door for my boss at work. With prices ranging from about £12 to over £100 for door closers, I warned her not to expect too much from it, before I bought it. But when I opened the packaging I was surprised at the quality, which seems quite good.
As for fitting, well I very rarely use templates; simply measured the distance from the edge of the door to the first screw on the template, then used that as a reference on the door. No problems at all."

Closer - An open & shut case.
18 Jul 2013
By fredandwilma
, Livingston
"Ideal for a lightweight door, closer instructions clear - template makes drilling the fixing holes easy. Easy to adjust the closing and slam speeds, although may need adjustment when the closer has been in use for a week or so.

great buy
8 Oct 2011
By yorkipud

"On a budget and wondered why these were the price they were £60 for 5 when you can pay that for 1, comes with fitting template and all fixings, easy to fit and works well, able to adjust to close as I wanted can't fault them and fail to see how more expensive ones would be better although I cant say how long they will perform without fault for."

cheap and nice
8 Jun 2011
By FireDoorSam
, devon
"good value closer, comes with reverse fitting bracket which many dearer ones do not.
Quite a hard push to open but it has to be cat 3 for a fire door.
Finnish ok but if you pay £50 to £ 150 you would expect it to look better.
Quite thick in size if hinge side of door very close to a wall may affect opening of the door fully. some dearer ones are thinner. All closers of this type have adjustment so no brownie points there.
I have bought and fitted over 200 of these and never had one that does not work ."

Just what was required
7 Apr 2010

"I used this product as a preventer on an outward opening patio doors to stop the wind pulling it away. As such it works very well. The spring is strong and though the damping is not sophisticated that element was not required. Very good value."

By chipman

"I bought 3 of them and they are good value for money but unless you are built like Arnold Schwarzenegger you will struggle to open the door. No problem closing the door though. The Briton is worth paying a bit extra for as I have one of these too."

Good value closer
10 Aug 2013
By jeffridj
, Cwmbran
"Not the best looking closer in the world, but, as it was going in my garage it didn't really matter. I found the instructions a little bit baffling at first, but after a few minutes folding along the lines it then made sense. I used this on the garage side of my garage to kitchen door that opens in to the kitchen (the push side). It can be fitted on either side as required. Works fine and the adjustment range was also good,"

"Does the job, but the instructions do let it down. However, the item feels well made.
First one took me about 20 mins to read the instructions and 15 mins to fit. The second one I did took me about 5 min to fit.
Fitting template provided."

Door closer
15 Apr 2013
By colonelhotrod
, Shrewsbury
"Great cheap product and reasonably easy to fit once you've figured out which diagram suits your needs. The only problem is that you are not provided with a tool to adjust the tensioning, and I,m still trying to think of something that would do the job! The mid score for reliability is because I don't know yet. :0)"
