You know, sometimes we live with something broken because we don't know how to fix it or even if a fix is available.
That was the situation with Steph's screen door. It wasn't broken, but the black part did not match the white door.
We had one of those "Duh" moments when we realized that replacement parts were readily available and that changing out the screen closer was a really easy fix.
Earlier this year, we had to replace the closer again as it got damaged in heavy winds. We keep the door open for the greyhounds to go in and out so it was open when a heavy wind caught it. The mechanism inside bent rendering it useless. We accidentally bought the heavy-duty cylinder, but it fit perfectly and works even better and doesn't bend in strong wind.
This was a super easy fix and looks so much better now.
The adjustment screw was a new discovery. If you have a finicky screen or storm door, perhaps it just needs an adjustment rather than replacement.
Anyone else living with something that could be a quick fix?
