Why won't the friction hold open arm on my closer stay adjusted?

Try the steps below to improve the hold open adjustment.

  1. Remove hold open nut 
  2. Apply a couple drops of blue loctite to the threads.
  3. Re-assemble, and reset hold open.
  4. Let loctite set up overnight, if possible, or at least a few hours.

If this does not solve the issue, have the arm replaced.
