Useful Doorstops For Your Doors
Whether you are carrying in a bundle of groceries, giving your home a nice breeze of fresh air, or trying to vacuum multiple rooms, there is nothing worse than being without doorstops and having a door slam in your face or even pinch your fingers. Styles of doorstops are vary widely and serve different functions so choosing the correct style for your home is important. Hinge pin doorstops are popular when there is either no base (or floor) board or a decorative trim is being used. Most styles screw directly into this trim and this does leave screw holes and is more visible. A hinge stop screws into the hinge rather than the floor board itself. These utilize a two leg construction to prevent the door from rotating the entire length traditionally allowed by the hinge. These are rubber tipped as well to prevent damage to the door and adjustable in length.
Another style of doorstops is a magnetic doorstop. A magnetic doorstop is a set of two pieces of hardware. One piece attaches to the bottom inside corner of a door, while the other piece is fixed to the adjacent wall. When these two pieces come in contact, the magnetic door stop may then be able to hold a door open and protect the wall from damage at the same time. These doorstops are often available in a variety of finishes, styles and price ranges to suit an individual’s specific needs.
