A Door Closer Hinge Makes Life Easier

A screen door or storm door helps keep the home cool or warm. But, it can be a nuisance to bring home bags of groceries or shopping and try to manage the door while getting everything inside. The best solution is to install a door closer hinge.

This device attaches to the door frame and to the lower half of the screen door. It has a slide, so you can prop the door open if you need to. Otherwise, the door simply closes slowly behind you, so your hands are free to carry things through.

A door closer is inexpensive and can be found in most hardware or DIY stores. It’s great to prevent scrapes and nicks that may happen when you try to keep the door open with your elbow. A door closer takes minutes to install and can make your life easier when you bring home bags or packages.
