2. Little accessory makes a huge difference

Weatherstripping and door locks all make the door-closing process harder.
You really want to consider these factors for a ideal closing performance when choosing your door closer.

3. Hinge positioning

See the hinge positioning chart below for different hinge combination.

Hinge placement :3 hinges(US)

Hinge placement :5 hinges

4. Save a little space for me!

Preserve installation space for hinge barrel to avoid contact with door or door frames.


5. Mechanical & Hydraulic: similar, but not the same

Hydraulic hinge offers 2 stages of deacceleration similar to door closer, while mechanical hinge offers quite average closing speed using a special mechanical damper.
