Listed door closer 669G -is an Underwriter Laboratory Number


The number 669G we find on Door Closers is just a sticker or stamping we find on many of their closers.   However, we find it on Dorma Door Closers the most.  The sticker or stamping usually says Listed Door Closer 669G.  This is the UL number, which is a testing laboratory.   UL stands for Underwriters Laboratory, which started in 1894, to test electrically and fire equipment.  It does not tell us which door closer you have, but it narrows it down.   Another number we find on closers is 803H, 149A  and 320 G, which are also UL numbers.  The best way to proceed is to find out as much as you can about the door closer you have.  I would look for Manufacturer (LCN, Norton, Yale, International, Sargent, ect..), possibly a model number,  the hole spacing of the hydraulic cylinder (3/4″ x 9-1/16″, 3/4″ x 8-3/16″, ect…),   how the door closer is mounted (on the door, top jamb, push side, pull side), and the hand of the door (see diagram below).  One of the easiest ways is to match up your door closer on our “Door Closer Information” web page.

    I have a closer marked Pitt Co 669G LS. the Arm attached to the hydraulic body was loose and wore the pivot ball in a way that it doesn’t want to stay attached to the locked arm attached to the door frame. I cannot find Pitt Co (also marked PPG). Is this a rebranded unit from another mfg? Can send a scanned photo of the unit if it will help.

    • Bill,
      Pitt Co is a company that imports door closures from Taiwan, just like International and Cal Royal. The good news is the arms are usually the same and they are made in the same plants. I also sent you an email from my company email.
