Home Living : August 19th 2008
2 HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, August 19, 2008 Open-and-shut case for doors HOW MUCH Screw driver $10 to $15; Power drill and drill bits $80 to $240; Measuring tape $5 to $15; Closer arm $30 to $60. After Fitted correctly, a closer arm will ensure your door shuts securely every time. But fitted incorrectly, the closer might make the door close short, which results in the door always being left slightly ajar. Step 1 The bracket for the closer arm should always be fitted on the door jamb. First work out the best location for the bracket and mark where the screws should go. Align the bracket so that the arm and the cylinder attached to the door will be horizontal at all times and so that the bracket itself is level. Step 2 Drill the holes and screw the bracket into the door jamb. Step 3 Open the door and if possible hold the cylinder in place against the door and bracket so you can mark the position of the cylinder screws. Step 4 Drill the holes for the cylinder, then screw it to the door. Close the door and check that the arm has an adequate extension. If necessary, remove the bracket, plug the holes with thin timber wedges and fix the bracket in a new position. Vary the closing force of the door using the adjustment screws.
