Editor's Notes

August 08, 2019:

Few things can provide as much ongoing frustration as a door that won’t stay open or closed, but we think either the Jamm Wedge or Wundermax Holder can stop this annoyance — and you won't have to shove your door mat under your door anymore. Both are simple to use and not all that pricey. That said, they aren’t necessarily one-size-fits-all units, so you’ll want to measure the gap under your door to ensure it meets their specifications. We also added the Comfify Cast Iron Mouse for those who want something more eye-catching and less utilitarian, but it is no match for heavy steel doors or rough winds.

If you’re looking to protect your walls, we think the HouseHold Impressions Spring Stops or Sumnacon Wall Mount might be of use. The former is a typical spring model, while the latter is made from rigid stainless steel that won’t make any boinging noises. It’s fairly large and noticeable, though, which not all users appreciate. And if you have children, both require caution, since they could present hazards to babies and toddlers.

Special Honors

Grand Specialties Kickdown For commercial applications, the Grand Specialties Kickdown is a heavy-duty choice that’s got plenty of thoughtful finishing touches. For instance, its stopper is held in place by a screw instead of merely slipped into place, so it’s not likely to come off.
