Larson Storm Door Parts Explained


A storm door closer automatically re-seals the door once it has been opened.

Drip Cap

The drip cap is a rain-deflecting device that sits atop the storm door.

The Expander

The expander sits at the door’s base and can be slid down for a custom fit during installation.

Glass Inserts

Full-view doors are distinguished by an inset pane of glass. Seasonally, a full screen can be installed in place of the full glass (included on interchangeable full views). The glass on some other versions may be set up differently.

Hinge Rail

The brick mold or other mounting surface is secured to the storm door frame through the hinge rail. The storm door can now be fastened to its hinges.

Latch Rail

The latch rail is the part that is fastened to the brick mold on the handle side, or another mounting surface. The storm door can be latched and closed with this in place.

Left and right rail extenders

These are installed at the base of the hinge rail and the latch rail, just like the expander, and allow you to fine-tune the fit of your door.

Registration Number

Each LARSON storm door is accompanied by a unique registration number. With this code, we can determine the exact door model and manufacturing year.

Each LARSON full-view, replaceable storm door comes with two retainer strips. Make sure your glass or screen stays put with these sturdy plastic strips.

Glass retainer strips

Glass retainer strips are located at the top of your door and help keep it in place. They’re made of vinyl, which means you can replace them if they become damaged or worn out over time.

Pull handles, latches, and kick plates

  • The pull handles, latches and kick plates are all used to open the door.
  • Pull handles are attached to an interior steel or wood frame that extends from one side of the door to the other. They may be made of wood, metal or plastic; some models have a decorative finish on them while others do not.
  • Latches are like hinges in that they allow you to move one part of your door open but keep it closed at all times by simply pressing down on them (like when you’re pushing hard against something). 
  • They’re usually located at either end of your storm door so they can’t be opened from outside without first unlocking them from within, closing off access from outside forces such as high winds blowing overhead during storms when strong winds around 40 miles per hour occur regularly.
  • Kick plate covers bottom half underneath entire structure which protects flooring underneath from dirt buildup caused by traffic entering/leaving house through entrances & exits only located near bottom portion where feet would walk upon prior entering home area.”

Handle sets and mortise locks

Handle sets and mortise locks are important parts of a storm door. They are not interchangeable, so you’ll want to make sure that your handle set is for the right side of your door before buying one. Mortise lock sets can be used on both sides of the door and should be installed when replacing an existing mortise lock 

Closer kits and brackets

Closer kits and brackets are available for a variety of doors. The closer kit contains the hardware needed to install the door closer, while brackets are used to attach the closer to the door frame. There are different sizes available for each type of door and sometimes you’ll need more than one type 

Your local hardware store should have all these parts in stock so don’t worry about trying to find them online; just call up your local store and ask if they carry any additional items like this!

Additional parts (hinges, replacement glass panels, etc.)

Additional parts such as hinges and replacement glass panels are available to help you customize your door. You can also choose different colors for the hinges and/or the outer edge of your door. 

For example, if you want to add a touch of color to your Larson Storm Door, then select from their variety of colored hinges or even choose an antique brass finish on these parts.

They are made out of safety glass that provides protection against insects flying into your home while also providing privacy when looking through them at night or during the daytime hours.

The Frame 

The main part of a Larson storm door is the frame, which is where all the wood pieces come together to make up one whole piece of wood. The frame has two side panels and two top panels that connect with each other at their ends (the ends where they meet).

The bottom panel attaches to these three sides using hinges or screws—you’ll see what kind of hardware your particular model uses on its website or in any handbook provided by Larson itself (if there isn’t anything telling you this information then try calling them).

Slide Bar

Another major component is called a slide bar; this part slides across one side panel while holding it open in place so people can walk through safely without tripping over anything during inclement weather conditions such as thunderstorms or hurricanes!
