Door stops are a useful tool and silent helper that is readily present in most businesses and homes. A door stop serves several purposes including holding a door open or preventing a door from opening too far (protecting the wall). Styles vary widely and serve different functions so choosing the correct style for your home or office is important. What is a Magnetic Stop? A magnetic stop is a wall or floor mounted device that utilizes the power of a magnet to hold a door open. This is a simple solution because it does not require more than one step to use this style and it is appropriate for most standard doors.
The fragile construction can lead to frequent replacements being needed because it becomes bent and damaged over time. What is a Hinge Pin Stop? This style is 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.
What is a Rigid Stop? A rigid door stop is a common style that screws directly into the trim of the wall and has a rubber tip at the end (this will prevent damage to the door itself). This style of door knob is great for protecting the walls but will not hold the door open. Choosing a solid brass door stop (not plated) will ensure high quality and resistance to natural wear and tear over time. What is a Spring Stop? A spring style door stop is essentially the same as a rigid type but utilizes a spring construction rather than a solid piece. This style is somewhat more inexpensive than other types but carries many disadvantages.

However cast iron happens to be one of the most beautiful and durable options.
When she checked into her hotel room and began unpacking she discovered that her father secretly put the Door Stop Alarm into her luggage. She was furious - how dare he! Didnt she tell her father that she would be OK? Why did he have to interfere? She promised to tell him a thing or two when she got home. Just to show Dad that his gift was useless she decided to put it in front of her door that night. "That way I can tell him that I tried it even though I didnt need it" she thought. Well it turned out that Jenny DID need the Door Stop Alarm that night because while everyone was asleep there was a storm that knocked out all the electricity for the hotel.
