Quieting lanai screen door
 
Does anyone have any ideas on how to quiet a slamming lanai door? I've adjusted the pressure on the door closer and, although it helps the door close slower, it still slams shut at the end. I thought about getting some thin weather stripping to soften the impact but am concerned the door won't latch shut if it's too thick.

The door closers typically have a slot on the bracket in the door, try adjusting this. In some cases I have seen a second screw on this bracket to the door, the second one goes to a hole so if there is one you need to remove this one to make any adjustment.
Hope this helps.

Mine has adjustment screw in the end of the hydraulic cylinder. It takes small Phillips screwdriver and takes few try’s to get just right., the door should close up to about inch then gently close with enough force to lock. I had two problems the hydraulic cylinder wouldn’t adjust that fine and my door was sprung dragging at the bottom. I switch out the cylinder with one of the ones on the front storm door ( it had two and only needed one or get it to work correctly. I brought turnbuckle kit to straighten up the door and finely got it to close whisper quite. But, over time the screw loosens or the cylinder needs adjusted to keep it quite.
