Improvement Project:

How to increase the shutting speed of a screen or storm door.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Screwdriver (or other fastening device as determined by the manufacturer's use of fasteners)

Guide:

 

For whatever reason, you wish to have your screen door or storm door shut a lot quicker than it does now.  There are two ways to go about achieving an increased shutting speed, and they both have to do with the door closer.

First, the door closer, itself, has a built-in mechanism for speed enhancement, usually controlled by a special screw; refer to the door closer manufacturer's instructions for this.  You can set this mechanism to its highest setting for the fastest closure possible.

Another way to go beyond the shutting speed enhancement of the built-in mechanism of the door closer is to actually move the door closer.  Specifically, reinstall the door closer bracket that is attached to the door frame further to the edge of the door frame towards the interior of the house so as to have the bracket, in effect, positioned further away from the door, itself, creating a bigger angle between the door closer tube-rod and the door, itself.
