    I want to fit a door closer with a nice damped action to my front door.

    I have some of these spare:

    But unfortunately they're far too "fat" - with the closer in place, I can only open the door about 60 degrees before it pokes into the wall (the door is set in a corner, quite an awkward spot).

    Is there an alternative item I could use here which has a slimmer profile? (or some other way entirely?)

    Thanks.

    Oh...hang on...do I turn the whole thing upside down and mount the fat bit on the door frame?
