I have an outswing exterior patio door that I need to prevent from blowing open fast when the door is open. I've left the door open a few times to quickly grab something in the backyard and the wind has blown the door all the way open and bent the hinges. This has happened to me on more than one occasion.
Is there something other than one of those bulky door closers that I could use to soften the door opening or prevent the hinges from taking the brunt of the force? I don't need the door to automatically close but I need it to not swing open very fast and bend the hinges.
