Door closer

Hi All , need a door closer that will allow the door to open past 90* , left door is secured by dead bolts on the inside, right side is secured by the hasp but it is not tight, so I guess I have 2 issues,.
PS the shed will be side.
Thanks

That's the high security shed with the hinge screws exposed.

Where are you going to mount it.... center... top ?
I see these devices listed as 180į shed door closer...... door closers.

Pete, I can mount it anywhere, I looked at these ants as usual I didnít read the full specs.
I think I will order one and see how it works.

PJ's suggestion is a good one for this application but I suspect these are designed for fairly lightweight doors....you might need (2), one near top, one near bottom, (for each leaf). And depending on wall thickness, you might need a "doubler" or backing plate to secure the closer body from twisting.

Look at the distance of the hinge-pin from the mounting surface on that closer. Compare it to the same measurement of the other hinges on the door. If the measurements aren't very close, opening the door will try to rip the hinges off the door. Consequently, you will need to replace the other hinges with ones having the same measurement.

EDIT: You could space the other hinges off the mounting surface to match, but I think you'll find that isn't really a good solution.
