Handing
Please be sure to select the correct hand of door when ordering a door closer. For instance you may notice the Right Hand and Left Hand Reverse drawings look similar. Indeed they appear to be similar. But there is a very important difference between them. The Right Hand drawing shows the push side of the door to be the locked (usually exterior) side of the door. But the Left Hand Reverse drawing shows the locked side of the door to be the pull side. This difference is significant when talking about door hardware as the application of that hardware is dependant upon the swing of a door. Door closers are especially relevant to the matter.
Handing Chart
Drop Plate
  • Top jamb mounting application is when the closer is mounted to the face of the head frame and the arm attaches to the top rail of the door.
  • The Push side mount is when the closer is mounted to the door and the arm attaches to the underside of the head jamb.

Questions and Answers
Q: What would cause a door closer to slam?
A: There are a few things that can cause a closer to slam.

  • The closer could be adjusted incorrectly. Turn all regulating screws clockwise until they stop. Then open each valve 1 and 1/2 turns. If the closer now seems to work, it can be adjusted to your closing preferences.
  • The closer may have lost some oil. If there is evidence that the closer has lost oil, nothing can be done to get it to work correctly. It will need to be replaced, or sent back to the factory for rebuild. Contact Sales Support for warranty/repair information.

  • There is internal damage or component failure. The closer will need to be replaced / repaired. Contact Sales Support for warranty/repair information.

Q: What is the difference between an SC80 and an SC81?
A: As of Sept 2010 SC81 models are adjustable 1-6, the SC80 model was discontinued.
Q: Can you tell me what hand this closer is:

Can it be used on the inside of an exterior door that swings out?

A: The part number that is in your image is a non handed door closer and can indeed be used on the interior side of an exterior door that swings out which is the ‘DS’ portion of the part number.

Q: Thank you for your reply. I’m using these interior on doors that swing out in opposite directions. Will they work on either one, or just the one that is hinged on the right?
A: Your Dor-o-matic SC81 series door closer will work on either left hand reverse or right hand reverse doors. The door closer body and the ‘DS’ arm that you have are non handed and universal can terms of the handing.
Q: What is the difference between an SC80 and an SC81?
A: As of Sept 2010 SC81 models are adjustable 1-6, the SC80 model was discontinued.
Q: How do you identify the model of a Falcon closer?
A: To determine the SC series, measure center to center on the closer body bolt hole mounting pattern and an overall description of the closer and arm.
