Don Feuling of ProHealth Care sent me today’s Fixed-it Friday photo from the entrance vestibule of a restaurant.  Sometimes when I see these creative solutions it seems like it would have been easier to use something that has already been invented, but I guess that would take all of the fun out of it.

    Certainly wouldn’t want to mess up that nice wood trim on the door head

    That is just plain ugly, the installer should go to door closer jail. Could have been easily solved with a soffit jam plate intended for bullnose trim or narrow head casings. My two cents.

    What is that mounted to — a bumper from a railroad yard??

  4. Steve Murray says:

    Seems like a 4000T would work, Does that door even open enough for code?

  5. Marshall says:

    Everyone is looking at the closer but what about the door. That door is a residential entry door from a local “big box” hardware store.

    Don’t you just love the non-bearing, rising pin, prime painted hinges too? What an ugly, and goofy, installation!
