This post shows the four steps to install a simple spring door stop on a wall.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows all the parts to a wall door spring.
- The round piece is the back plate which has a hole at the bottom.
- The brass screw holds the back plate to the wall, or baseboard.
- The spring wire is the actual door spring with a rubber tip.
Fig.5 shows a stubby spring doorstop.
Step 8: Baseboard door stops are attached to the bottom edge of the baseboard by a metal base with a screw in the bottom of the base, the spring is screwed into the baseboard to give the spring a firm foundation.
Step 9: Floor door stops are attached to the floor and have a rubber base, usually used on heavier doors. Some of these are seen in business offices.Step 10: Fig.9 and fig.10 shows a wall-mounted door stops are installed on walls and stop the door at the door knob. Fig. 11 and fig.12 shows circular wall mounted shield to prevent the door handle from damaging the wall.
Step 11: Hinge pin door stops stop the door out of the way on the hinge. The stop is usually mounted on the top hinge, and this combination stops the door from hitting the wall. The problem with this stop is it can pull the hinge out and damage the door.
