How to install an easy wall door stop. These are a great alternative to the screw on door stops that sometimes cause issues in your home.
Our first house was a new build and had the typical small posts for door stops that were installed on the baseboards using a screwdriver. As toddlers, the kids loved to remove the white plastic ends to these. They’d stick them in their mouths. Ugh. I didn’t love them.
We also had a couple of door stops that attached to the hinges above. While these seemed like a good alternative, they WENT THROUGH THE DOOR. I had to repair two different doors before we moved because there were large holes from the door stops. This was super frustrating.
Maybe we’re just hard on doors… could be that a radioactive spider bit us and now we’re manifesting our super powers… or maybe we just don’t know our own strength. We’re not so much door slammers as we are unaware of how hard we’re opening doors. Silly, I know. But it appeared that others also had the same problem.
When we moved and needed new door stops, I decided to do some investigating. We need the door stops- between my kids and I, the door knobs are bound to go through a wall if they’re not protected. But I certainly didn’t want the issues we had before.
I was so excited to discover that there’s a super easy to install alternative to “regular” door stops that work great in most circumstances.
These wall door stops work for doors that open into a wall where the door knob will hit the wall. They don’t work for doors that will hit other doors.
Here’s how to install them!
- Door Knob Wall Protector
- Ruler/measuring tape if desired
How to Install a Wall Door Stop
This is pretty simple. You start with opening up your package of wall protectors. There was two in each package.
The back has stickers that you can pull the tabs off.
You’ll want to wipe the wall clean where it will go and make sure it’s dry.
If you’re smart, you might want to measure out exactly where to place it. I pushed my door up against the wall and just found where the knob would hit. I just stuck it on in approximately the right area.
Press it on for a few.
Go do it to all of your other doors. Done. It was super fast.
