Unfortunately for Jenny it happened around 1 AM when she was asleep and she didnt hear the storm. But the local hotel burglar did hear it and knew how to take advantage of the situation and to get into as many rooms as possible. He already had success in two rooms - the occupants never even knew that he was in their room. So when he got to Jennys room he felt very confident. No lights were on and it should be easy pickings. But when he tried to open the door it hit the lip of the Door Stop Alarm and set off the 120 dB alarm -- which is very loud. Needless to say Jennys room was not burglarized that night and she stayed safe.
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.
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.
Solid doors are made from hard wood and are heavier compared to hollow doors. Thus the solid ones would require a door stopper that is more sturdy and weighty. Wall and baseboard door stoppers are usually recommended for doors that are solid and heavier. This type of stoppers would require drilling holes on the wall or floor so as to permanently mount the device. Hollow doors on the other hand may also use these types of stoppers but a hinge pin one is going to work fine. So do not wait for your walls to be ruined with the continuous slamming of the doors.
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.
To use the this device you shut the door and place the alarm on the ground in front of the door so that the thin side is touching the doors threshold or is even with the door face. When the door opens it pushes the plate on top down sounding off the alarm while at the same time jamming the door from opening further than a crack. It measures 6" x 2" x 2-1/4" making it compact enough to pack in an overnight bag or suit case so you can take it with when staying at hotels or motels providing added safety while traveling. Test results: During testing this unit was tested on a variety of flooring surfaces to learn how it would perform on each surface and what surface it was best suited for.
