How To Order Pot Belly Closers:
These old style closers are a little more difficult to order as they are less universal than newer models.
B/D is equal to spring sizes 2-4
E/F is equal to spring sizes 5-6
(A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6) A standard commercial door mode from solid core wood uses a size 3 spring. A standard hollow metal door would take size 4. This translates to most doors will use a B/D pot belly closer.
It the door is oversized or an exterior door, it's better to go with a heavier spring and order E/F.
A handing chart is provided on the Images Tab.
Arms are availble for Regular Arm (RA) mount or Parallel Arm (PA) mount.
A Regular Arm mounted closer mounts on the pull side of the door, where the barrel of the hinges are exposed.
A Parallel Arm mounted closer mounts to the push side of the door, where the hinges are concealed.
The 78 series is available in 4 finishes.
