How to use a doorstop

OK, we know you don’t sit around thinking about your door stop, but that’s the point. You shouldn’t need to think of the functionality – or lack of functionality of it. With Stop or PropTM you not only protect the wall from damage, you also get a method to easily hold your door open when you need to stop it from closing.

For far less cost than a door wedge, magnetic catch or flip down stopper and without drilling or damaging your door or floor. Stop or Prop is two products in one!

How to Install Stop or Prop


Open the door and place the doorstop on the wall. Making sure the stop is fitting flat to the wall, align the door’s edge close to the center of the front stop post.

Using a hand screwdriver, screw the stop to the wall. Check alignment of the door is in the desired position. Adjust as needed by loosening the screw, move the stop left or right for correction. Be sure to keep Stop or Prop vertical and square with the door. Re-tighten the screw.

For auto-prop, adjust the doors edge to contact the stop post on the angled portion. This will allow the door to be pressed against the doorstop causing it to flex. The door will then enter the retainment zone automatically once the door passes the front stop post.

This option works great on door you want to keep propped open often.

Stop or Prop engages the door where it is the strongest, at the outer edge. This is where door manufactures add the strongest-solid wood and it is what holds the door together. Often times a slammed open door with a regular solid doorstop and no “give” will actually put a hole in a hollow core door.

Auto-prop is when doorstop’s angled portion is set even with the edge of the door. This allows the door to be pushed into the prop mode without flexing the doorstop.
