Revealing The Hidden Purpose A Classic Door Stopper Has
Door stops protect surfaces like walls or cabinets from bearing the impact of a wildly swinging door, but they also can hold the door open by looping underneath.
A recent Instagram reel from @jordan_the_ stallion8 showcases the trick with a coil spring baseboard door stop and has homeowners gasping in surprise over the dual functionality.
This combination of functions is one of the main benefits of most coil spring baseboard door stops relative to other varieties.
Install a spring door stop about 1 to 2 inches above the floor and 2 inches from the side edge of the door in line with the doorknob. If it's too low, it will slip under the door.
