Frequently Asked Questions

What is a hanging door stopper?

A hanging door stopper is one of those door stoppers that provide easy storage. These stoppers have integrated hooks that allow users to hang them wherever they want. However, hanging door stoppers are mostly hung on doorknobs and handles for convenient installation.

How to make a DIY door stopper?

If you want to avoid the market door stopper and make one on your own, then I have some ideas.

  • Go in a garden and pick up a decently heavy stone, heavy enough to hold your door against breezes.
  • If you have an elastic rubber ball and you don’t use it, then try to fit in the door gap, if it does then congratulations from my end, and if it doesn’t go for a different technique.
  • If you are in a hurry, and you aren’t worried about the aesthetics, then pick up a heavy item and place it next to your door.
  • Or if you have nothing heavy that holds the door, then the most convenient option is, pick up your baby and place it next to the door. (ha-ha just kidding)

How to Protect Your Kids from Getting Injured by Door Stoppers?


Magnetic, wooden, or rubber door stoppers, each holds a tendency of hurting you. however, wooden door stoppers are the sharpest and dangerous of all, because the sharp edges of the wooden door stopper can injure you seriously. On the contrary, magnetic door stoppers are curved and less injurious than wooden door stoppers. Rubber door stoppers are softer than magnetic and wooden door stoppers and therefore are the least injurious amongst them. This doesn’t mean that you have to avoid magnetic and wooden door stopper, but you have to be extra careful and precautious while installing them and you have to inform your kids to be careful as well.

Recently, foam door stoppers are introduced as a child safety product. But they aren’t as efficient in keeping the doors open. You can hook them on the edges of the door and they will prevent your door from banging and slamming against the wall.


I would recommend that when choosing amongst the types of door stoppers between metal and wooden ones, you should choose the wall-mounted ones. Having your door stopper mounted on your wall will prevent you and your children from tripping upon them and eventually getting a pinched finger. Therefore, the only problem with a wall-mounted door stopper is that it keeps your door fully open. While floor-mounted door stoppers can be installed anywhere on the floor.

The best option to avoid injury as well as getting a customized floor-mounted door stopper is that you get a rubber one. Rubber door stoppers are softer than wooden and magnetic ones and they have the least risk of injury.
