    This is what happens when you buy off the shelf doors and frames without the proper reinforcements and hardware fasteners. Oh it is just a door what do you need to know about it!

    I bet this door doesn’t have a wall to stop against. And no overhead stop or CUSH device was ever used. Help stop closer abuse!

    It must be a heavily used opening, bathroom maybe? I like the left over fluid still on the door face, from previous closers that couldn’t quite cut the muster on this application. Here’s a caption to go with the picture, ” I know I saw that instruction manual somewhere “.

    It’s probably a fire rated door too…

    Did Nolan do that?
