Looking for a Door Stop

Posted by J at June 02. 2005

I need something that I can pick up and move. I have marble tile. I have seen some that look like hockey pucks that are brushed metal with a rubber bumper on them, but I know several manufacturers sell them at different prices. I would like to know if anyone can recommend a good site for me to purchase one that is not ridiculously expensive.

I am NOT interested in 'James the Doorman' either! Check him out [url href=]here[/url]. ;)

Please provide anything that you may use or just sites that sell these items....

There is a place called Topdeq that has the stops you are looking for from $33 up to $82. Their web site is [url href=]here.[/url] Just do a search for doorstop. Hope it helps.

We use the ol' brown rubber wedge under our bedroom and nursery doors. We have an old house and the doors rattle when the cats mess around with them at night so for THEIR protection (it makes me furious!) I wedge the doors tight. We got the wedges at Wal-Mart if I recall. We were driving by and I thought, Hey, Wal-Mart must have simple rubber doorstops, I'll just run in and run out. Oh how naive' I was! Never EVER step foot in a Wal-Mart unless you need to in some kind of life and death situation, it's where you realize just how scary America really is.

What does this story have to do with a modern doorstop? You're right, James Doorman sucks!

Thanks for the replies thus far. Topdeq and Chiasso have the ones I am thinking about.

That banana one is SOOOOOOOOOO ridiculous!! LOL! Sheesh.

I was actually using two plastic wedges held together by a rubber band because the space from the bottom of the door to the floor is over 1. It was pretty cheesy, but it worked. The other day I said that I just needed to upgrade this situation.

Maybe some more replies will come in, but I will probably go with Chiasso if I don't hear anything else.

Thanks everyone

I have the Wedo Doorstop by Blomus but I don't know if that's the brushed metal hockey puck style that you dislike. I thought the $14.00 was reasonable.

not to sound flip, but how about a nice rock? Something like river rock, or a nice rock you find on a hike or at a tide pool? You could certainly put felt or rubber on the bottom. Certainly cheap enuf

My mom used this great rock to hold the back door open. Looked great!

Thanks for the suggestion. I live in the metro Detroit area...Not too many options for a hike or at a tide pool in my world. :( LOL!

I know of several landscape businesses that carry rocks for landscape purposes and that could be interesting.
