• 70 Series Stop-Only Heavy Duty Door Holder

*Actual product and finish may vary

Glynn-Johnson 70 Series Stop-Only Heavy Duty Door Holder is for single acting doors – interior and exterior.

The best door control device is one that operates overhead, with an arm functioning from the jamb to the top of the door. When the door stopping or hold-open does not exceed 110°, this device is by far the most efficient.

The overhead holder and stop is out of the way, in contrast with floor or wall-mounted stops, which can be a stumbling hazard and are vulnerable to damage by accident and vandalism.

Glynn-Johnson overhead holders and stops should always be used on doors furnished with door closers, as closers are not door stops and should not be expected to perform that function. Glynn-Johnson overhead stops are designed to protect door closers from violent openings.

The bar is always provided in US32D. The spring, washer and nut are provided in a clear zinc finish. 


Glynn-Johnson 70 series holders and stops offer rugged durability and ease of installation. The surface-applied door and jamb brackets provide reliable door control, yet require minimal door and frame preparation.

Glynn-Johnson 70 series Hold-Open and Stop-Only models provide heavy-duty door protection. 

70S Series Stop-Only Models:

(Suffix S) When the Hold-Open function is not a requirement, Stop-Only models provide a reliable method of door control. Stop-Only models provide the same shock-absorbing capability as Hold-Open models. The Stop-Only model may be used on fire doors.

Application Information

UL Classification:

The 70 Series Stop-Only models are classified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) as Miscellaneous Fire Door Accessories. This classification applies to use on either Hollow Metal Fire Doors or Wood Fire doors. These units may be used on doors of any rating. As a reminder, the Miscellaneous fire door Accessories (GVUX) Section is defined by UL as: “Miscellaneous fire door accessories are intended for installation with classified fire doors and/or listed fire door frame as identified in the individual listings. The accessories have been investigated to determine that when installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, the accessories do not adversely affect the fire rating at the fire door and/or fire door frame.”

Dead-Stop Templating:

Dead-Stop Templating is recommended for applications where a wall or similar obstruction is placed at an opening angle of 110º or less (i.e., doors that open back-to-back). Dead-Stop Templating can be applied to Hold-Open and Stop-Only models. The Dead-Stop position is the point at which the shock-absorbing spring is fully compressed. Therefore, when Dead-Stop Templating is used, the initial degree of opening will be 5º to 7º less than the Dead-Stop opening.

Example: If the holder is templated to a 100º dead stop, the door will hold open

at an angle between 93º and 95º but no further than 100º.


Surface mounted overhead door holder installation does not require mortising of jamb or door. The jamb bracket is surface mounted on the stop of the frame. The channel is also surface mounted on the face of the door. Hollow metal doors and jambs must be reinforced to provide necessary strength for the holder specified. Strength of wood doors and jambs must also be adequate for the holder. A typical surface mounted installation is shown in Figure 1 where jamb bracket is fastened to the stop. Angle jamb brackets are available for hinge side mounting (Figure 2) and for use with rabbeted doors or flush transom installations (Figure 3). Jamb brackets with special shims for use on jambs with blade stops are also available (Figure 4). Advise stop height and the appropriate shim kit will be provided.


Suffix J (Angle Jamb Bracket):

An angle jamb bracket is available to convert standard models to hinge-side or flush transom mounting If ordered with unit add suffix J. If needed separately, order either 70J or 79J by finish needed.

Suffix SB (Sex Bolt Mounting):

A package of 2 sex bolts provided with the 70 Series.

Suffix SOC (Pin-in-Socket Security Screw):

A screw package with pin-in-socket screw for mounting both the door bracket and jamb bracket is provided instead of the standard screw package.
