Solution for Leakers

oil-cup

I think this has to be my all-time favorite photo (so far) of Doors Gone Wrong.  If you don’t immediately recognize what you’re looking at, it’s an ingenious solution to a leaking closer – a little cup attached to the closer arm to catch the drips.  I wonder how often they have to empty it.  BTW…this is NOT an LCN closer.

    appears you found a leaky international or global closer, thats a first, a cup under the leaky pivot, will someone PLEASE either replace the closer with LCN or replace the leaky O-RING!!! many places (depends on state and building code standards) a leaking closer can be a big problem, not only can their oil be flammible (light weight hydraulic oil) but also can cause a fall from the puddle and just looks terrible and if enough oil escapes from closer, LOSS OF DOOR CONTROL (slamming or rapid closing)
