Introducing the latest in fusible-link door closers, from Bungee Mfg. Inc.
Do those new bungee closures come in a wire transfers style aswell?
Don’t panic, I got this.
Button? Button? I don’t see no stinking button. There must be some humor here someplace
I see a problem with the mounting locations of the PA shoe on both closers, its mounted to the frame itself, not the frame stop.
I wonder if the bungees are to temporarily fix a closer that is too weak to close the door??
fusible link yes, but your limited in the spring strength and no backcheck (if bungee used alone)

What’s with the door to the left? When it’s opened does it block egress?
Door can be opened in 15 seconds —-if you know the combination!
