Unless I’m missing something, what could be the down side? Lori December 12, 2014 at 3:25 pm - Reply I’m not sure how much force the screw will take. The closer arm can exert a lot of leverage. I’ve seen arms bent around a Cush stop. Bryan McKeehan December 12, 2014 at 3:06 pm - Reply Too funny, it had crossed my mind before, quickly dismissed knowing how much more leverage is created by the closer arm versus the door. I could see it working short-term, during construction, until the correct arm was sourced. Eric December 12, 2014 at 3:15 pm - Reply This is a hick-fix that kinda makes sense. Bob J December 12, 2014 at 4:12 pm - Reply Another Bill E. spec? Lori December 12, 2014 at 4:15 pm - Reply Haha. He’s going to cut you from his Christmas card list. Bill E December 12, 2014 at 4:26 pm - Reply Bob J is just jealous that I thought of it before him. Take more than this to get such a nice guy like him off my list. Lori December 12, 2014 at 4:39 pm - Reply I have not yet received my Christmas card from you. Bill E December 12, 2014 at 4:48 pm - Reply It is in the mail, really. Susan McClendon December 16, 2014 at 1:03 am - Reply For the rest of us non-experts, please explain. Lori December 16, 2014 at 8:18 am - Reply Hi Susan – Someone has mounted a floor stop on the frame head so the door closer arm hits it and stops the door. It’s a similar idea to a “Cush” closer except not designed for the forces exerted by a closer arm. – Lori Ron March 17, 2015 at 5:57 pm - Reply Not only that, the forces exerted at that close pivot point are far more than further up the arm. It’s a short life for that cushioned stop with any amount of force applied to the door. It’s a geometry thing.
