Q: trying to identify correct tension rod and pins for a bommer r4667 spring loaded hinge.
A: Hard to say which one you need as that r4667 is a listing number. We know that it is a spring hinge because code mandates that the listing number be actually applied visibly to a spring hinge where standard ball bearing hinges do not have this same requirement. That listing number likely applies to different series and the best thing to do is to reply to this email with a photograph of your hinge for proper identification. At that time we will advise the proper tension rod and tension pin for your spring hinge.
Q: My hinges came without tension rod & pins. Can I substitute something else?
A: No - use only the factory original pins to keep tension and the factory original rod for setting tension.
Q: Im looking for a bommer spring hinge that fits this layout. It is also marked 653M Door Closer Body R-4667. If the screw layout cannot be found, can I take any LB4300 4x4 spring and take apart the internals and transplant them into the old body? I believe its a variant of the LB4300 spring hinge.
Looks like the Bommer LB4373-400-604 4x4in Single Acting Spring Hinge-Full Mortise-Residential Weight-Lube Bearing-Steel Base-Zinc Plated and Dichromate Sealed
as seen here:
Though you cannot disassemble the hinge in anyway.
Q: Has anybody figured out what tension rod and pins are needed for the R-4667? I have the same and also marked 653M like others indicated
A: R-4667 its not a part number for a hinge. It is a laboratory listing number . If you reply to this email with photographs of your hinge I can tell you what tension rod and tension pins are needed for the particular spring hinge - Richard 773-809-3667 x 1112
