Generally, door closers should be adjusted to provide a smooth, controlled closing of the door, while still providing enough force to close. There are a variety of ways to adjust a door closer depending on the model.
It is usually necessary to adjust the tension on the spring or hydraulic arm in order to control the speed and force of the closing action. Some door closers have adjustable valves that control the rate of closing. Others may require the removal and replacement of different springs to adjust the tension.
