Door Knob Wall Protectors

Supplies and Tools:
Wall mud

It's funny that our country can send someone to the moon but we can not figure out a way to close a door without the door hitting the wall. Hardware stores came out with door stops, which are great if they are in good shape, but most are not working.

This post shows the four steps to repairing a small hole and installing a door knob wall plaque.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the real answer is the wall plaque. Its purpose is to stop the door knob from damaging the wall and this works very well. Cost is about $3, and can save the wall and repair damages. Next the wall hole needs to be repaired. Apply pre-mix mud to the area.  
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the wall plaque needs to be removed from its packaging and prepared to apply it to the wall. The back end of the wall plaque has double-stick tape paper that needs to be removed before it can be applied to the wall.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the paper tape is removed and then push the plate over the damaged hole and press hard against the wall.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows how it should look.
