Customer Reviews

Instructions very poor and could not install!!!
jay
The sleeve that is supplied for door pin did not fit the hinge, so I had to put the pin in the hinge without it.
Mike Keller
Once installed, you would have to adjust the spring tension for your door to swing shut.

Like just about everyone else has mentioned the supplied instructions just had me scratching my head..until I just slipped it into the hinge to see how it fit. Then it becomes clear how it works.

The problem is that the way they tell you to install it is pretty much impossible to do because once it's in the hinge there is no clearance to rotate a wrench enough to go as far around as you need to. I gave up after an hour before I started throwing tools through the walls. I slept on it overnight.

Here is how I did it:

First, oil the shaft. Then first see if it is going to slide into the hinge without much friction. I was lucky because once I took the brass sleeve off it slipped in smoothly.

Once you're sure it will slip in without much trouble, TAKE IT OUT FOR THE ADJUSTMENT. Don't even bother to try it their way.

Once it's out and you're sitting comfortably, place the legs directly opposite of each other on the shaft. There will be no tension on the spring at this point. Then clamp the legs tight using Vice Grips so they won't slip out and rotate. Clamp them high up on the lowest leg so you don't torque anything out of whack when you tighten the Vice Grips down on the legs. Also, clamp them using the very end of the Vice Grips so you have as much clearance as you can get from the door.

In my case I then just held the Vice Grips firmly between my knees (probably a better method exists) and turned the nut clockwise about 3/4 of a turn, then simply slid the pin into a slot to secure the tension (with the legs still clamped).

Then since you've already established that the pin will slide into the hinge without much effort, just slide it in ALL THE WAY DOWN while the Vice Grips are still clamping the legs.

Very quick movie post-installation of the stanley hinge door closer. In my case, it does not work as there is simply too much pressure on the door from the carpet below, and the clothing hanging from the back. While I increased the spring tension, I was not able to really crank it sufficiently to overcome the reverse tension.

The door to our basement opens in the middle of a long hallway. With 2 teenage boys and a TV/gameroom in the basement, you can imagine how much of the time the door spent blocking the hallway. We've had one of these on the door for about 4 years.,Stanley Hardware Automatic Hinge Pin Door Closer, Bright Brass #755885 We recently had to remove the door. When we put the door back up, we spent hours trying to put it back on so the door would close correctly. I searched the web for others. There is not one single product out there even remotely like this one. It does last forever but saving your directions may save you lots of time and frustration in the future. If this one broke, I would pay 10 times the price if necessary for another. It is worth every single penny.

Worked fine on the doors that they could fit into. A couple of the doors I wanted to use them on, the hinge was too close to the door jam and they would not work with them. Hinge needs to protrude out some from the jam

I do my own everything and this is one of those things that about drove me nuts. I made it work but at the cost of much trial and error. True, once it was on it worked ok. Bottom line is it's just too much screwing around to set that tension right and get those little arms to catch. They do chew up the casing at the contact point too if that means anything to you. This little fella is constantly trying to bit you all the while as you are monkeying with it as well. FAR BETTER TO REPLACE THE WHOLE HINGE WITH A COMPLETE UNIT FOR A COUPLE DOLLARS MORE.

My husband got tired of the laundry room door being left open so ordered it. It closes the door even when you want it to stay open. It really does the job well.

When I read the reviews, I assumed that anyone who could not follow instructions and install of simple hinge pin door closer must be stupid. SO here I am. I am mechanically inclined and like to believe that I can put almost anything together. My first hint that trouble was lurking was when the graphic on the instructions was ever slightly (but really significantly) different from the item. I figured out that the original instructions must have been in Swahili, translated to Urdu, then Chinese, and finally into perfect English that makes no real sense. Because it has a taught spring in the device, the trial and error method of what ought to be a simple proceedure, can be both painful to the installer and dangerous to passersby. Wear eye protection and give your family bullet proof vests. :)

A little complicated to install correctly because of the spring-winding required. However, once you get it on, it works very well.
