Hold Open Washer
Anybody know where to find a new hold-open washer for a storm door? I'm missing one, and I haven't had any luck finding any locally.

I guess if I had to, I could start hitting the flea markets/thrift stores and try to find a whole piston... or door.

As cheap as those closers are....just go buy a new the time you spend the time and gas searching, you would pay for the new assembly.

The other option....find a large washer that will fit over the shaft....clamp it in a vice and beat the edge over a little bit...that should work.

Ha. Perfect. Now all I need to do is find more stuff to order so I don't have to pay $6.95 shipping.
