Not good for internal corners
29 Jun 2015
By Budgieman1
, Norfolk
" I had a Yale closer for 15 years and was hoping to replace it with a cheaper one.
Unfortunately the hydraulic unit is so deep it prevents me opening the door the full 90 degrees like I could with the Yale.
My point is this is not suitable if you have a door that only opens 90 degrees because it is the corner of a room and you want it fitted on the inside of that 90 degrees.
I can't comment if it is any good as I have not fitted it to use. Now off to replace it with a Yale 4000 like before.

great product at a great price
1 May 2015
By PEFold

" Very good product, have bought and installed a variety of closers over the years and this is as good as anything I have fitted. Instructions are clear and easy to understand although they do have you fitting it the wrong way round on one of the pictures but very easy to change. "

" Seems like a very good bit of kit at a very low price, agree with others the Instructions somehow seem mind blowing so did normal thing and ignored them. cannot say about durability because has not been installed long enough but seems as good others that I fit and price is fantastic. "

Cheap door closer
19 Feb 2015
By Bimble
, Maidenhead
" I used these to replace two Dorma closers which had failed on entrance doors to flats. They are a straight replacement (except screw holes don't exactly line up). You can even put the the original Dorma plastic covers on them to keep the same look. Three adjustments, length of arm, speed and latching. Instructions not brilliant but OK. Can't say about reliability yet so giving 3 stars for that. Price is unbeatable. "

" A good quality item that is simple to fit and works well all for a really competitive price.
If you are looking for a door closer then look no further this will exceed all expectations when considering quality to price comparison.

Great value door closer
13 Jan 2015
By Soundpound
, Winchester
" I am very impressed with this door closer. For the price I was expecting a badly made unit made out of thin cheap steel. Well the opposite is true. It is made of sturdy steel and all the fittings and bearings are of a surprisingly high quality. Everything required is included to fit the unit to either wooden or steel doors. A paper template with fitting instructions makes it easy to fit. It isn't necessary to fit it exactly as there is quite a lot of room for adjustment which is great for unusual doors like mine. It performs well and the speed at which the door closes and the final latch force can easily be adjusted by turning 2 screws. It also comes with a 10 year manufactures guarantee. All in all, I can recommend this closer. "

" This is simply a great value product which is easy to install. It is not as bulky as some and I recently fitted these onto older heavier doors and there was no problem getting them to close the door onto the latch. Great product for HMO's "

Good value for money
30 Oct 2014
By NotThestig

" Good template, but forget trying to understand the instructions - they're incomprehensible.
Use some common sense and its a doddle to fit.
Stiff to open, but - hey - it's on a fire door...
Maybe after a few weeks it will ease off a little
Comes with a good selection of screws and fittings for every possible fitting arrangement
I cannot comment on reliability yet (which is why I give 3 stars)
It seems sturdy and well made - only time will tell

By PGlad

" I found this door closer made the door very difficult to open and there was no discernible way I could find to adjust this. Closing and latching speed yes, they worked well, but that's no good on a door which your customers struggle to open in the first place. This had to be removed. "

By Kwagga

" This closure has replaced an old worn out one made by a different manufacturer. It was very easy to fit and adjust, using the supplied instructions. As I have only just installed it, it is too soon to give it a good mark on reliability. It seems very well made, and works really well. According to the fitting instructions, it comes with a 10 year warranty, but won't know how reliable this information is until you need to make a claim one day. "

" 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 !
