Even if we didn’t mean it, there would be a knock on the door. This is especially true of families with young children, adolescent children, and even unruly pets! Just opening the window can generate strong suction in the room and cause the door to hit accidentally. A slammed door can cause the hinge to break, shape break and drywall damage.
While these are fairly simple repairs, they can be easily avoided with the right precautions. To protect your walls and ears, put an end to the constant shocks and install door stops or bumpers! Read on to learn about door stoppers and bumpers that are best for budget-conscious buyers.
These are in the shape of cones, with heavy springs, that spiral down to solid rubber bolts. They attach to the bottom plinth behind the door and are one of the most affordable options you will find in a home improvement or department store.
These are comparable to miniature anchors and are widely acclaimed for their modest price and reliable performance. They are best used for light doors, as they do not necessarily prevent the door from opening, but prevent the wall from opening. Since they are smaller and more hidden, they are also aesthetically pleasing.
These are often referred to as “hinge stops” because they are floor standing door stops with a hook and eye design. These are multipurpose items as they prevent the door from opening too far and keep the door open. They are very suitable for standard to medium-heavy doors.
Dome door stops are popular for being cheap, modern and modest in appearance. It is a domed cylindrical door stop with rubber on the outside, which acts like a skirting spring. They come in a variety of finishes and styles, allowing you to integrate equipment into baseboards or doors or make stylish changes. Their failure is because they are not compatible with cement or hardwood floors.
Turn or “kick” the doorstop, just like the tripod on a child’s bicycle. If they are needed to prevent the door from opening or closing, they are manually folded into place. When not in use, you can manually flip them back to the wall or baseboard.
Wall bumpers are very popular indeed because they are cheap and easy to install. They are very suitable for those who are not good at handling tools, because they are easy to attach to the wall with one screw. They are installed behind the door with the door handle in contact with the wall.
