Four Models:

Glynn-Johnson 450 series holders and stops are designed for medium to light-duty applications. They're ideal for openings that are subject to normal activity, providing protection for the door, frame, hinges and surrounding walls or obstructions.

Designed for improved compatibility with most door closers, all models incorporate popular channel/slide arm design and offset jamb brackets. The improved design makes it easier to change functions in the field, should user requirements change.

450H Series Hold-Open

(Suffix H) These models conveniently hold doors open at a predetermined position, permitting unobstructed traffic flow. These models feature an adjustable automatic Hold-Open that is activated when the door is opened to a preset angle. The Hold-Open tension can be adjusted using an allen wrench through the end of the slider located in the channel at the top of the door. Each meets the 250,000 test cycles required for Grade 1 classification.

450S Series Stop-Only

(Suffix S) When the Hold-Open function is not required, the Stop-Only function provides the same effective door control without keeping the door held open. The Stop-Only model may be used on fire doors.

450F Series Friction Hold-Open

(Suffix F) Friction Hold-Open models provide an alternative holding method ideal for patient room doors, wardrobe or closet doors, or similar applications where multiple Hold-Open positions are desired. The friction tension can be adjusted using an allen wrench on the slider located in the channel at the top of the door.

450Se Series Special Stop-Only

(Suffix SE) When Stop-Only models are used in conjunction with single point Hold-Open electronic door closers, the function may be ordered without the shock absorbing mechanism. Used as an auxiliary stop with these closers, they will prolong the life of the closer. The stop location is adjusted using an allen wrench on the stop block located in the channel.


Suffix J (Angle Jamb Bracket):

  • An additional option on the 450 Series is the Angle Jamb Bracket for hinge-side or flush transom mounting. The angle jamb bracket affixes to the standard jamb bracket. If ordered with the overhead add suffix J. If needed separately order 450J-Finish.

Suffix Shim (Blade Stop Shims):

  • Shim kits are available in 3 sizes:
  • 450 SHIM1 is a 3⁄16" Shim Kit
  • 450 SHIM2 is a⅜" Shim Kit
  • 450 SHIM3 is a 9⁄16" Shim Kit
  • If ordered with overhead, add suffix SHIM (1, 2 or 3). If needed separately order 450SHIM (1, 2 or 3)-Finish.

Suffix Soc (Pin-In-Socket Security Screw Package):

  • A screw package with pin-in-socket screws for mounting the channel to the door and the jamb bracket to the frame is provided instead of the standard screw package.
