blum door stops
When she checked into her hotel room and began unpacking she discovered that her father secretly put the Door Stop Alarm into her luggage. She was furious - how dare he! Didnt she tell her father that she would be OK? Why did he have to interfere? She promised to tell him a thing or two when she got home. Just to show Dad that his gift was useless she decided to put it in front of her door that night. "That way I can tell him that I tried it even though I didnt need it" she thought. Well it turned out that Jenny DID need the Door Stop Alarm that night because while everyone was asleep there was a storm that knocked out all the electricity for the hotel.
The results were as follows; all hard surfaces (cement hardwood linoleum tile indoor outdoor carpet and commercial carpet) the results were similar enough not to explain the minute differences; the door was jammed almost immediately only allowing the door to open a crack while the alarm roared to life. Next I tested this unit on typical house hold carpet; the unit did tend to slide back further before stopping the door however the door never opened further than 4 to 6 inches and the alarm worked instantly. In summary both tests were conducted with various opening speeds and strengths.

However cast iron happens to be one of the most beautiful and durable options.
The slower or faster the door opened made no difference on the hard surfaces while the slower you opened the door on the carpet the longer it would take to engage because it would slightly slide back before engaging. As for the strength the stronger you forced the door open the quicker on both surfaces the unit jammed the door. I would recommend it for college students; who want to keep unruly friends out of their dorm room while sleeping renters and travelers who are looking for an inexpensive way to stay safe at there home away from home.
