This video will help you replace the door closer.

You will need a Phillips head screwdriver, a flat head screwdriver, and a rubber mallet.

You’ll also need a solid surface to pry against, such as a small block of wood.

To begin, check to see that your door closer is not operating properly. In this case you can see that the roller ball is sitting outside the striker, which is improper closing.

First, open the door and push the roller ball down, so that it operates properly. Then insert the flat head screwdriver under the bottom of the door closer unit and pry it up using the small block of wood to protect and get the right angle.

When the door closer pops off its retainer clips, simply swing it further outward and upward to remove it entirely. Then take your Phillips head screwdriver and tighten the mounting bracket screws.

Once the mounting bracket screws are tightened, open the door again and replace the door closer component using the rubber mallet to tap it into proper position. Then push the roller ball down into the proper position and test the closing. Test three to four time to ensure the closer is smooth and sure.

Once this is complete, adjust the door striker as required. Instructions on adjusting the door striker are included in another video in the Imperial Brown door maintenance series.

    Thanks this was helpful! For those that may still be having trouble getting it off… Make sure the screwdriver isn't under the plate when you try to pop it off. I ran into this issue. The solution for me was to just pry ot the corner as to not have screwdriver go under mounting plate.
