"It looks the part, but 50% of the screws sheared well before being tight in a softwood frame, the quality of screws used is so poor, pozi drive screws would be much better than the ones included as they didn't seem to be pozi or phillips. The instructions are wrong too and tell you to fit it the wrong way round so then has to come of and be refitted, just to cap it off, when you order black you dont expect to have to get black paint and paint the silver screw on the top that stands out like a sore thumb otherwise. Apart from that, the product seems to work ok. Also, just as a note, if you have antique style hinges that surface mount, then the closer has to be fitted further away than the door frame or it wont work."

Review 4 for Sterling 3272 Surface Mounted Door Closer Black
"Probably fine when used indoors, but this was working fine on a gate, until in a cold snap the internal workings basically froze up. I knew as I tried opening the gate that I would break it, even opening it gingerly, but it was a choice of this or not using the gate until the weather changed."
