Choosing a Direct Fit Replacement Door Closer
Door Closer Helpful Tips

When you need to replace an existing surface mounted door closer, the easiest way is to match the bolt hole pattern up. This will allow you to install your new closer in the same place as the old one.

There are 3 basic measurements:

  1. Horizontal Holes: The width between the centers of the mount holes horizontally.
  2. Vertical Holes: The width between the centers of the mount holes vertically.
  3. Body Width: The width of the closer itself (this is not critical, but is helpful when determining space around the body for door placement).

We show how these measurements are laid out and you can see in the illustration above, it's quite easy to take a quick measurement.

Below we list the mount pattern measurements (center to center) of the most common door closers, so you can choose a closer easily and quickly as a direct fit replacement.
