A deadbolt with an exit device! Andy Lindenberg August 20, 2014 at 4:03 pm - Reply Read the directions? In the real world, they’ll do whatever it takes to make it work, right, or wrong.

Oh well, as long as it closes the door, right? Real men don’t read instructions! Bryan McKeehan August 21, 2014 at 2:25 am - Reply I guess this explains why the last school job I did this year had no peel n stick templates. Factory figures if they are not going to use them, why send them… Bryan McKeehan August 21, 2014 at 2:30 am - Reply Oh yeah and there is the confusion factor; open slowly, panic device, push plate and last, but by no means least, a deadbolt?!?!? Things that make ya go hmm… Jess August 21, 2014 at 7:42 am - Reply looks like someone didnt pay much attention to the door schedule or needed a closer and only found a LCN 4010 and figured they want to put it on push side, there are a couple of ways to put a 4010 (pull side only closer) on push side of a door, one way is to use a CORNER BRACKET (remember, closer has to be OPPOSITE hand of the door!) the second way, mount the closer TOP JAMB. if the closer you are installing is the 4040XP, make sure you CLOSE backcheck position valve on back of closer body BEFORE you mount it (top jamb or corner bracket) many times when this happens, there are no instructions with the closer (got it off Ebay/Craigslist or found it at a Habitat For humanity ReStore location) maybe thinks if you can mount a screen door bracket to the side jamb that it may not make any difference if this same thing was done with a commercial hydraulic arm type of closer, well, it does make a difference, due to geometry of the arm and its “range of motion” in this installation, you may not have backcheck functioning at the position it’s suppose to start at when opening the door. another reason is some people think that they can choose to mount it at any height they want if the arm is attached at the side jamb, if I was approached by this one, I would recommend they put it up as top jamb, since the 4010 is pull side only, it most likely will NOT have the PA head jamb bracket. Bryan Mckeehan: what?? no more peel and stick templates??? I remember when tehy stopped providing the allen wrenches (5/32 and 3/32 for adjusting, and the older ones had a double ended spanner wrench that had 3/4 and 1 3/4 ends, the smaller end was for spring adjusting, the other was for HEDA arms and assembling the older EDA/H-CUSH/HEDA’s now its just a cover, closer body and arm??? what next, no cover or arm, just a body LAP?? -Jess the door closer doctor Leave A Comment Cancel replyComment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
