I tried this out and it seems to work well. I’m not sure if putting extra padding in would have been better, but this has the basic effect that I was looking for. This item would be great if you live in a home with angry kids (or adults) who like to slam doors. Nothing takes the wind out of their sails as much as trying to slam a door as hard as they can to make a point, just to have it close quietly behind them- or alternatively, bounce back at them.
