How to Install a Storm Door

Take the storm door from it,s package and follow manufacturers instructions on how to assemble the door and handle. If it is preassembled you are ready to install.

Measure the opening from top to bottom and cut the bottom of the hinge rail on the storm door to this size. Place the storm door into the opening and screw the hinge rail into place.

Next take the top rail and fasten it into place. Measure from the top rail to the bottom of the opening and cut the latch rail to this size and fasten into place.

Put screws provided with the door into all screw holes. Follow manufacturers instructions for the door closer and latch assembly.

Adjust the bottom sweep so that it just touches the sill of the interior door. Do not force it down to tight as this will tear the rubber on the door sweep.

Open and close the storm door a few times and adjust the closer until you are happy with the way it closes. It should come closed in two steps and not slam shut.
