Steel Door Stopper with Extra-Strong Suction Cup




Available for sale at the following link: Steel Door Stopper

BACKGROUND:
I ordered this door stopper for my auto-closing entrance door from the garage. It can be a pain to going in and out of the house with hands full of groceries or bringing in a baby car seat. This door stopper was needed so I wouldn't have to push the door open then try to run through before it closes.

PROS:
+ No hardware
+ No holes if you remove it
+ Works for standard residential steel auto closing doors
+ Easy removal
+ It can be stored in the "up" position and it doesn't fall down when the door slams

CONS:
- Not recommended for using on doors that don't have a smooth surface (i.e. doors that have a raised wood grain) or doors with a thin veneer
- I wouldn't recommend sticking and removing it frequently since it might lose tackiness of suction cup

NOTES ON POTENTIAL USES:
I have only used this on my door coming from the garage. However, I can make some assumptions for potential uses. I think this door stop can be used on standard steel or wooden residential doors. I don't think it should be relied on for heavy doors often found in commercial buildings or schools. I don't think the suction cup would be hold up long term for heavy doors.

CONCLUSION:
I was worried that the door stopper would fall down each time the door slammed. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it hasn't. It's easy to install and actually works! When used for residential purposes, I think this would be suitable for many people's applications without mounting it permanently.
