Best Door Closers in 2020



Door Silencer Door Jammer Door Closer Cushion Nursery Door Silencer Door Latch Cover 3 Pack for Noise Reducing Quiet Doors Baby Toddler Safety 3.25 x 5.5 Inch (New Grey) Review:


Everytime air conditioner or furnace starts running due to suction of return registers baby room door hits the frame since we don't fully close it. Even though we use sound machine time to time, our baby can hear the door hitting and wakes up right away. We were looking at another famous brand but the cost of one was more than this product.
So we chose this and just now found out that we made a great choice.

No more jamming doors!

This is definitely worth every single penny.
-very cushiony compared to other famous brand
-easy to install
-fits great
-elastic bands are sturdy
-stitches feels and looks sturdy
-fabric and the whole item feels very well made and quality product.
-affordable price
-you get three of these for the cost of one

I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who's trying to block the doors from jamming.



Touch 'n Hold Smooth - Dual Kit - Heavy Duty Door Closer System - for (Medium and Heavy Weight) Storm, Screen, Security Doors - New Doors or Replacement for Previous Units (White) Review:


I have had a Larson storm door for about 5 years which used EZ Close by Greenstar. I could never get them adjusted correctly - the door would either slam too hard or stick open. There may have been something defective with the closers, so I finally decide to replace them with the Touch 'n Hold closer based on good reviews here.

I was initially concerned because the closer looks identical to the one I was replacing, other than a different name on the stick-on label. Since the mounting brackets were identical, I could reuse them making installation very quick. Fortunately the closers work very well, unlike the original ones, and can be set for a gentle close without hanging up.

The reason for 4 vs 5 stars is that the closing action is not perfect. As is typical of other closers I've had over the years, if you set it for a gentle close, the closing action is not continuous. The door will almost close, then bounce back an inch or so, then close gently. Not a problem unless you have a coupe cats trying to escape, and the bounce back gives them the perfect opportunity to get out. Overall this closer works much better than the EZ Close and I'm very happy with it.



Wright Products V920WH STANDARD DUTY PNEUMATIC CLOSER, White Review:


We installed two Andersen 3000 series screen doors (the self-storing half-screen w/glass type), a black one for the front and a white one for the back door. Love the Andersen doors BUT the closer they include doesn't open to a full 90 degrees!?! No idea why not but it was driving me insane so I got this as a replacement.

The Andersen has the nice foot-activated lock switch to hold the door open...whereas this one has the old fashion tab you have to slide. The foot tab is convenient but not opening to a full 90 degrees is a deal breaker so the stock closer had to go.

I already had the Andersen closers installed so I just removed the two pins and inserted this new closer using the pins included in the package. Took some minor adjusting of the pneumatic part (loosen the screw at the end so it closes a little quicker) and it works great! Just an FYI - there are two holes on the tip of the closer and the directions indicate one is for a glass door and to use the other for a screen door. I found the hole labeled for the screen door worked better and was easier to adjust to the door latches shut at the end.

I didn't use the brackets that came with this (already had the Andersen brackets installed) but I will say they seemed kinda cheap/weak compared to the brackets that were included with the Andersen door. Still gets 5 stars though since it's advertised as a "standard-duty" closer and the brackets probably would have worked fine anyway.

Now the doors open a full 90 degrees (just past 90 actually, maybe 100 degrees) and I'm happy!



Wright Products V150WH Heavy Duty Pneumatic Closer, White Review:


I bought this to replace another door closer that I bought a couple years ago. This works great after you get it set properly. It took me a while to get it installed messing around with the adjustments, but it now closes properly. It was initially making a banging noise even on the slowest screw setting, but I read on a different website to move the bracket closer to the door jamb and this solved the problem. I can no longer hear the door close since it stops a few inches short of being fully closed and pulls it in slowly for the last few inches. I don't know about the longevity of this door closer but even if it lasts a few years like my old one did I will be happy with it.

 Finally I don’t have to worry about the kids leaving the back door open every time they run outside! Love this thing!! I was a little nervous to install but found a great YouTube video, and had to get a little creative because it did not describe how to install it on a door where I wanted to install it, so I’ve included a video to show how I got it done, along with a tip or two I learned from a mistake. I’d absolutely recommend this!

Door Closer FS-1306 Automatic Adjustable Closers Grade 3 Spring Hydraulic Auto Door-Closer with Easy Installation Life Size Fitting Template & Instructions Silver Aluminium Review:


I installed this on the back door of my house, a large wood door that is quite heavy. As others have noted, after the closer was installed per the included instructions it worked very well, but it made opening the door a monumental task. I don't have children in the house any more, but I very much doubt my two youngest grandchildren (ages 2 and 5) would be able to open the door at all. I was willing to live with it, but after reading some of the reviews I saw where the seller mentioned that if the door was too hard to open to take the Arm Shoe and turn it around. I tried this and it improved it quite a bit, but not perfect. The seller also mentioned the shoe could be moved up to an inch further away from the hinge side of the door to improve the opening problem. I have attached two pictures. The first one shows the closer as I installed it originally, the second one shows the closer after I moved it 1 inch to the left and reversed the shoe (my door is hinged on the right). By doing both the shoe arm is probably two inches further to the left than the instructions showed. It opens much easier now. It still takes a little effort, but it is acceptable. I will be filling in the hole and applying some touch up paint shortly. For those who are just beginning the install I would recommend you add 1 inch to what the instructions say where to mount the shoe (instructions say approx 8.4" from the hinge side of the door). Then mount the shoe in the recommended position and if the door is hard to open try reversing the shoe. Also, where my door is located it only opens 90 degrees (and it still does with the closer mounted this way) but if you have a door that needs to open wider I am not sure if adding the 1 inch will cause any problems.



Touch 'n Hold Smooth - Single Kit - Standard-Duty Door Closer with Touch-Button Hold Open Feature & Smooth Closing Motion – For (Medium & Lightweight) Storm, Screen, Security Doors. Upgrade Your Door. Review:


After about 9 years, the bottom closer on my storm door broke. The plastic on one end got sun damaged and weakened to the point of breaking. So after looking here on Amazon I found that they sell a replacement for just the bottom closer and it looked just like the one that broke (my original had the EZ Touch feature as well). Once I received it I looked at all the contents and decided to try and use the brackets from my old closer on the door jamb and the storm door since it looked the same to me. Well turns out the end of the closer that connects to the door is a little wider than my old closer, so I ended up replacing that bracket. Luckily the brackets were the same size overall so the screw holes still lined up perfectly. I installed the new bracket and connected the closer to both ends and VOILA! Installation done and it works just perfectly! Overall took me about 10 minutes to install. So, if you have a similar closer that you need to replace, this is an excellent and easy to install option.



Modern Automatic Door Closer - Sexy and Slick Commercial grade Hydraulic operated - For Residential/Commercial Use Model DI 100S Silver (Installation Video is Provided) Review:


Just finished installing and I am very satisfied. The instructions may have improved but still leave quite a bit to be desired. The correct installation and adjustment of this closer is the key to be satisfied or the closer breaking / damaging your door. And there isn't much other information online, although you can piece together advice through some limited research.

First, an install template is included but I would caution anyone from relying solely on the template. If you have a very simple install, maybe, but it didn't really work out for me and I'm just using it on a normal, residential install.

Instead, use the template measurements and a tape measure to ensure you get the closer positioned correctly. The further away from the door hinge you install the closer the stronger the closing force but less far the door will open. I would encourage you to keep the hinge side screws of the closer within 3.5-4.75" from door frame / hinge edge.

I only needed about 120* door opening requirement and used the template. Somehow I ended up with the closer nearly 5.25" from the edge (my mistake) and it didn't work well at all. The door was difficult to open and when it closed it had such force that it would pull the screws out of the closer if not closely controlled. Once I relocated the closer within the manufacture's specs it worked as advertised.

Also, ensure the arm attached to the door frame is at 90* and the closer is not. This preloads the closer a bit and helps it latch the door fully. If the closer's arm were 90* / perpendicular to the door instead, the closer would be far less effective. Therefore, the best way to lineup and install this top arm to the door frame is to assemble the linkage and line it up at a 90* angle, then drill the holes for it's mount.

I had to write this review after finally getting this installed correctly.
