Permanent Door Stop

Fig.1 Door stop
By Gary Boutin

Supplies and Tools:
Caulking (manual) Gun
Liquid Nails® Adhesive

Tyler Zowat 's home was in Perris, California. He had a huge family that visited his large home regularly. I received a call from Tyler that his nieces had removed all the door stops in the house and he wanted a solution. Usually door stops are just screwed into a door or baseboard and are not permanent.

Step 1: Above fig.1 shows a door stop placed on a door instead of the wall.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows Liquid Nails® adhesive and applied the glue to all the door stop screws. Applied the adhesive for over 10-doors with this new technique and it worked fine. Tyler has not called for any other door stop repairs, the adhesive must have been strong enough to stop those little idle hands.
