Sterling 3272 Surface Mounted Door Closer Black
To close a small garden gate. It's a bit small and weak, but it may be alright. I shall see in a month or two.

Sofar, so good
After taking some time to adjust it, and lubricating the hinges, it needs time to settle in, then you can adjust it again! It's still ten times better than the spring one.

Good product but difficult to fit without a template

Poor Fixings and Instructions
It looks the part, but 50% of the screws sheared well before being tight in a softwood frame, the quality of screws used is so poor, pozi drive screws would be much better than the ones included as they didn't seem to be pozi or phillips. The instructions are wrong too and tell you to fit it the wrong way round so then has to come of and be refitted, just to cap it off, when you order black you dont expect to have to get black paint and paint the silver screw on the top that stands out like a sore thumb otherwise.
Apart from that, the product seems to work ok.
Also, just as a note, if you have antique style hinges that surface mount, then the closer has to be fitted further away than the door frame or it wont work.
