" I use these and they are easy to fit and adjust for closing speed. They lack the shiny box surround of some of the more expensive models but they do the job well. As mentioned in other reviews some of the cheaper units are very hard to open but these are just right. "

Good closer so far
7 Mar 2015
By NoChainNoGain

" This is first door closer purchased so can't compare against others. However the instructions took a while to understand (a few words go a long way).
IMPORTANT:
If you're fitting it to the opposite side to way the door opens towards (if the door opens outwards and the closer is on the inside) you can only have it set to EN2. This is what the additional bracket is for (the one in the picture).
You also cant use the template, you have to use the measurements from the other sheet.
If you mount the closer on the same side as the direction the door opens towards then the template is moved for either EN 2+3 or EN4 (EN4 is further from the door hinges). Then for EN 2 the bracket attached to the end of the strut is turned around the opposite way to EN 3 or 4.
Easy isn't it?
The fact this is my first closer purchase and that it was fitted to a door with no latch means I can't really compare with others or comment on adjustments. - It shut the door ok though and was easy to open the door with it fitted. "

Nice door closer
10 Apr 2013
By Fluorescentpink

" I bought this to replace a larger unit that closed a wooden door into a wooden frame. The door and frame are now UPVC and you cannot fit a door closer on the inside. The instructions are hideous! It took longer to work out what the pictures meant than it did to fit it and you need to be very careful indeed as it is very easy to drill holes in the wrong place. Once fitted very easily adjusted to suit closing need and works very well indeed. How it stands up to the weather remains to be seen. Good value for money. "

Good product

By Wildbeeste

" I bought two different makes door closers on the same day. This was the more expensive one.I used it on a heavy Victorian front door, Once I had worked out that you cellotape the template to the door frame and punch the marking holes through the paper it was a breeze to fit.
It is not adjustable as regards power apart from repositioning the whole unit though the speed of closing is easily adjusted.
It is not too heavy to open - unlike the cheaper unit. which I have since removed from the door I fitted that to.
It is a good piece of kit. Spend the extra and get this
