Door Installation

Installing a Door

1. Handling each door carefully, install them into the frame, one at a time by inserting the torque rod-end into the cavity of the torque adjuster.

2. Tilt the top of the door up and toward the frame, inserting the hinge pin into the GIB (Guide In Bracket), located in the top of the door frame making sure that the spring clip engages into the upper frame rail.
Note: Make sure the clip fully engages into the frame. If the clip is not installed correctly the door could fall out.

3. Insert the hold-open bolt through the elongated hold-open slot and into the frame mounting hole. Tighten with a Phillips-head screwdriver to 55-inch pounds.

4. Adjust the door swing and door squareness by adjusting the door closer. (see Torque and Sag Adjustment)

NOTE: Do not use power tools to adjust the door closer.

NOTE: Do not over-tighten the hold-open bolt (torque to 45-55 inch pounds). Be certain that the hold-open does not bind while sliding along the hold-open bolt and adjust as necessary.

Torque and Sag Adjustment

The torque adjuster regulates the door squareness and tension of the door swing.

1. Use the flat head screwdriver; adjust the torque rod tension by turning the outside screw on the torque adjuster.
• Turn counter-clockwise to increase tension.
• Turn clock-wise to decrease the tension.

2. Adjust the door sag to square it in the frame by turning the screw that is marked SAG ADJ. (sag adjustment), on the end of the torque adjuster, until the door slowly closes itself.
• Turn the screw clockwise to lower the handle side of the door.
• Turn the screw counter-clockwise to rise the door's handle side.

NOTE: Do not use power tools when adjusting the door closer. To check for proper door closing tension, open the door approximately 1 inch and release the door. The door should self close without any assistance.
