    Sad, I don’t think that is even metal hanger strap; looks like plastic. A competent carpenter or locksmith could have permanently and attractively mounted that top jamb mounted closer body before if falls on the head of a passer-by, as it surely will!

  2. Daniel Poehler says:

    Closers are heavy. I’d be very concerned about this closer falling and beaning someone in the face or head.

    Actually pretty handy if you want adjustability to go from a 110* opening to a 180* opening and back again.

    Nailed It!

    Can not believe they didn’t paint the Special Brackets to match!

    don’t you just hate it when they cheap out and don’t buy color-coordinated plumbers’ tape?

    Looks like a yale 3500 series, they could done P.A. mount with soffit bracket and drop plate
