A stopper Hinge is a functional and necessary piece of hardware that prevents your door knobs or levers from impacting the wall behind them. They can also prevent your doors from banging into cabinets or other doors and inflicting damage on the drywall.
There are many different types of door stops available, all of which perform a specific function. Each one has its own style and finishes so that you can coordinate them with your hardware.
Hinged Pin Door Stop
A door stopper can keep your doors open and prevent them from banging into walls, but the right type of stopper depends on your specific needs. Hinge pin door stops mount to your hinge and usually have threaded posts that allow you to adjust the amount of opening space.
These stops are a good option for lightweight interior doors since they don’t take up much room along the baseboard and can be installed quickly. However, if you have ornate baseboards and trim, you may want to choose a stop that won’t be in direct contact with the drywall.
For example, the Door Protector stop is designed to only touch the trim, so it won’t impact the wall. Gadgetspac can also find hinge pin stops that have a split wedge at the bottom of the pin to lock it in place and prevent it from lifting.
Magnetic Door Stop
A magnetic stopper Hinge is an inexpensive and effective way to protect your walls from damage caused by doors slamming open. It also helps to keep drafts from suddenly causing your doors to blow shut.
These door stops are made from premium magnets and come in a variety of attractive finishes to complement your home’s aesthetic. They’re also easy to install and can be mounted on either the door or baseboard, depending on your needs.
They’re also a great solution for people who have trouble opening and closing doors, including those who are blind or elderly. A magnetic door stop can help reduce the chance of damage to your walls and make it easier for you to access areas of your home or office.
If you have a lot of traffic in your home or workplace, then a heavy-duty stopper Hinge is a good idea. However, if you’re looking for something simple and inconspicuous, a stopper Hinge with a spring in it is a good option.
Under-Door Door Stop
The Under-Door Door Stop effectively seals air leaks under your doors to keep warm air in and cold blasts out. Its double-sided design helps keep your home cozy while also reducing energy costs.
This insulating draft stopper is great for doors up to 36 inches wide, which is enough to cover most wood, metal, plastic, or glass. Simply stick it to the gap underneath your door with its strong velcro adhesive, and you’re good to go!
This is one of the most affordable and effective door draft stoppers we’ve found. Not only does it work to prevent heat loss, but it can also keep out pests and reduce unwanted noise. Plus, it comes in a range of colors to match your door’s style and decor.
Wall-Mounted Door Stop
A stopper Hinge is one of the most functional pieces of hardware in a home. It prevents your door knob or lever from punching a hole in the wall and damaging nearby drywall.
Often installed as an additional or complementary piece to your door set, these wall-mounted stops can be found in a wide variety of finishes to coordinate with any decor. They feature a rubber bumper mounted in a round, square, or rectangular plate that directly lines up with the knob.
These versatile stopper Hinges are available in solid or spring options to fit most doors that open parallel with a wall, although they can be used on hollow-core interior doors and heavier exterior doors as well. They can be installed easily and are generally inexpensive compared to other door-stopper types.
